Umami Mart Sake
I told you that I would blog about BLT's famous popover (I miss sunny Puerto Rico). Well, images from the restaurant weren't good enough, also they gave a recipe card with it, so I decided to make it myself. I have had popovers at Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners, and they were crispy on the outside, and hollow inside, and good stuff. BLT's version was huge, and so crisp outside, and the Gruyere cheese definitely added some indescribable joy to it.


Since I bought a 6 popover pan, I reduced the recipe into half.

  • 2 cups of flour

  • A bit less than 1 table spoon of salt

  • 2 cups of milk

  • 4 eggs

  • gruyere cheese

Warm the milk, beat eggs until they are frothy, add milk slowly (so that it doesn't cook the eggs). Sift flour and salt, and mix them together well. Make sure you don't chill the batter. Keep it a bit warm of room temp.

Meanwhile, stick popover pan into 350 degree oven. Once it's hot, take it out, and spray it with non stick spray, pour the batter (I filled it basically to the top to make the largest possible popovers). Sprinkle cheese on top, and put into the oven for 50 minutes. DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN, it will deflate it!

Wow, it started to rise!!
Soon enough, it looks like erected dog penis.
It's getting bigger and by this time, the smell of burning cheese was so delicious!
Don't they look fabulous?
As long as you don't chill the batter, and not open the oven door, this is almost fail proof. For your next dinner party, instead of regular bread, try this. This is definitely the "Did you really make this? Holy shit!" kind of stuff. Similar recipe is yorkshire pudding, but it uses beef jus, but this one doesn't use any additional grease (other than cooking spray), so it's vegetarian friendly too.

  • enrico, you do not need popover pan to make this. My friend actually just pour it onto regular cake pan and make just as good of popovers. Or you can definitely use muffin tin.
