Popovers - Basic

Do you know what this is? Why, it's a Popover pan. And I love love love mine.

Popovers - Basic
1 1/2 t. shortening
2 beaten eggs
1 cup milk
1 T. canola oil
1 cup flour

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Put a 1/4 t. shortening in each cup of the pan. Put the pan in the oven until it gets really, really hot and the shortening is completely melted. Combine the other ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth.

Take out the pan from the oven and spoon the batter evenly between the cups.

Here my husband is photographing me and making inappropriate comments, which he is very, very good at.
Put the pan back in the over and bake at 450 for 20 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 for another 20 minutes.

And here is the finished product.  They get puffy and have a hollow spot in the middle to put things.  Like butter.  Eat them hot.

Don't have a popover pan?  That's okay.  Make them in a muffin tin or 6 six-oz custard cups.
