Recipe: "Popovers" and "Marlene’s Yorkshire Pudding" from Michael Ruhlman's blog
Rating: Good. Quick and easy to make.
Status: Made once.
I used the recipe for popovers, since the ingredient quantities are proportioned for just one egg, which just happened to be how many eggs I had in my refrigerator. I used the suggestion in the Yorkshire pudding recipe for making the batter ahead of time (though I only made it 30 minutes before I cooked it) and letting it rest, and preheating my ramekins with 1 Tbsp butter. The raw batter filled my two ramekins about half full.
I used half and half instead of milk, since that's what I had around. I cooked my popovers for 25 minutes at 450F, which was a tiny bit too long, since the tops got a little bit burnt.
I put the ramekins in a pyrex baking dish, and some of the butter spilled into the baking dish, so I do recommend using a baking dish like this in order to keep your oven cleaner.
