Popovers in 1920

Sandusky Register, Sandusky, Ohio May 25, 1920, page 6


Take one cupful of flour, one egg unbeaten, one cupful of milk and a pinch of salt.

  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of milk
  • pinch of salt

Butter the gem pans and place in a hot oven. Mix all the ingredients together, stirring hard with a wooden spoon. When the pans are hissing hot pour in the batter. Fill each half full. Bake in a hot oven until well puffed and golden brown. Cover with a paper and finish baking. This recipe makes a dozen popovers. These may be made for dessert by dropping a piece of banana, a few blueberries, fruit or jam into each cup of batter, which will rise and cover the fruit in baking. Serve with syrup or fruit sauce.
