We’re not much of a family for pancakes. Occasionally we make a batch of waffles, maybe twice a year. However these little treats are a family favourite. Easy to put together, then nothing to do but leave them to cook in the oven.
They have a steamy, custardy center, which is perfect with a spoonful of jam tucked inside. The only oil used is that to grease the pan. With berry season arriving soon, and a whole summer of “no-school” mornings ahead, take the time to bake these, then sit outside in the sunshine and munch through them all while fresh.
Makes 1 dozen.
1¼ c flour
1¼ c milk
½ t salt
Cooking spray or melted butter to grease the muffin tin
Preheat oven to 375° – with rack in lower half of oven
Whisk until fairly smooth, a few lumps are okay.
Liberally coat muffin tins with cooking spray. If using butter, allow for ½ t per popover – about 2 tablespoons.
Bake for 35 minutes, without opening the oven.
Remove from the pan, and serve.
These can also be used as a side dish with roasted meat, to absorb the gravy and juices.
