- 3 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 3 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 cup unbleached all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Position oven rack in the middle of the oven.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Spray 8 custard cups with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, place the eggs, milk and oil.
Beat with an electric mixer until combined.
In a small bowl, sift together the flour and salt.
Add it to the eggs, and mix with the electric mixer until it is smooth.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula and mix again.
Pour the batter into the custard cups, about half full.
Place the cups on a cookie sheet, and get an adult to help you transfer the cookie sheet to the oven.
Bake the popovers for 45 minutes, until they are puffed up and brown.
Your adult helper can remove them from the oven.
You will have to get an adult to help you take the popovers out of the hot custard cups.
Running a butter knife around the edge of the cups will help loosen the popovers.
Serve immediately, as they will deflate as they sit.
Serve with soft butter and jelly.
