From: christi@... (Christi Wilson) Date: Wed, 15 Feb 1995 23:25:42 GMT Adjust rack to lower third of oven; preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease each popover cup generously with soft butter or solid vegetable shortening.

Combine ingredients in a blender or food processor; process about 40 seconds. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl a couple of times and blend until mixture is completely smooth.

To make by hand, whisk together the eggs, milk and butter in a large bowl.

Add the flour and salt and beat until very smooth. Pour into greased cups, filling half to two-thirds full.

Bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Do not open the oven door during baking or the popovers will collapse. Makes 6 to 8, depending on the size of the baking cups.

Nut Popovers: Add ¼ cup ground nuts to the batter.
