I have a passion for young moms and their kids because that was such a sweet time (oh, but busy) in our lives. Fleeting and Precious. There was this easy book I turned to again and again with my girls in the kitchen for fun easy recipes. I’m going to share my favorite recipe from there with you, but you just have to get this book (I’m thrilled it’s still around) for your kitchen staple (yes, Jessica, Rebecca, Amy, Morgan, Lauren, Onalise, Jennifer (I hope there are more of you out there, those are my most recents contacts 🙂 I’m thinking about you!) And grand moms too 🙂
So here is our favorite: Pg. 26. . . Popover Recipe: Pretend Soup by Mollie Katzen and Ann Henderson (I love how they provide easy picture directions kids can follow!) This post is dedicated to you moms with the desire and purpose to home school.
about 2 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
extra butter, jam, honey or maple syrup for the popovers
1. Preheat oven to 375F, and melt butter
2. “Paint” the insides of 12 muffins cups with melted butter
3. Break eggs into the mixing bowl.
4. Add milk and beat well.
5. Add flour and salt and whisk until reasonably well blended- it doesn’t have to be perfect. Little hands are so appropriate 🙂
6. Use a 1/4 cup measure with a handle to pour batter into each muffin cup.
They should be 1/2 to 2/3 full.
7. Bake 20 minutes without opening the oven.
8. Remove muffins form the pan and prick with a flak to let the steam escape. Spread insides with butter and/or jam, honey, etc.
Yield: 1 dozen
So yummy warm on a cool Fall afternoon after school. And Oh, the math they can learn in the kitchen. When I picked up our book, it is still sticky from little hands. I have no intention of wiping it down. I like the traces of jammy fingers 🙂
