Jordan Pond Popovers
June 2, 2020
Two years ago we took a road trip up to Canada and explored Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. On our way home we visited Acadia National Park in Maine. What a beautiful place!
Everyone always told me that we had to go to the Jordan Pond House for popovers. One morning we got up early enough to get a parking spot at Jordan Pond. We were so excited to hike the trail around the lake and I kept talking up those popovers the whole hike. I had it in my head that you could just order these famous popovers at a stand like you could at other National Parks. Well, it turns out that the Jordan Pond House is a really nice sit down restaurant with $12 popovers! It was the end of our trip and the end of our budget but boy were those popovers yummy. That expensive price still bothers me to this day - so I had to figure out how to make them at home....
2 cup whole milk
2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Beat the eggs in the mixer.
3. Add the milk and salt and beat some more.
4. Stir together the flour, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl.
5. Slowly add the flour mixture to the bowl and beat really good until the batter is light and bubbly.
6. Chill the batter and warm up your pan in the oven. This cold batter and hot pan will really help your popovers to rise.
7. Take pan out. Spray your popover tin with cooking spray. I only had a muffin tin and used that. This recipe made 18 muffin tin popovers.
8. Fill each tin up 3/4.
9. Put the pan in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.
10. Lower the temperature to 350 and cook for another 10 minutes until the popovers are fluffy and high.
Serve warm with butter and jam. Yum! I might have to invest in a popover pan!
