Unlike traditional popover batters, this one gets beaten into a smooth, silky texture. Definitely worth the rest time ~ yummy with a cinnamon-apple compote! Enjoy ~ V
IN A BLENDER, food processor, or bowl, combine the eggs, flour, polenta, salt, pepper, and cinnamon and blend briefly. Slowly add the milk and blend until completely smooth. Cover the blender and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight.PLACE 1/2 TEASPOON of the melted butter in the bottom of each cup of a 12-cup nonstick muffin or popover pan. If you are not using a nonstick pan, spray or brush the muffin cups with vegetable oil before adding the butter. Place the pan in a cold oven and heat it to 400°F.
WHEN THE FAT IS VERY HOT (take care that the butter doesn’t brown), return the blender to its base and blend again briefly, or quickly pulse or stir batter in bowl. Pour an equal amount of the batter into each cup, filling each one halfway.
BAKE FOR 30 TO 35 MINUTES, or until the popovers are well risen and golden. Do not open the oven door during the first 20 minutes of the cooking time or the popovers may fall.
SERVE HOT, accompanied by butter and preserves.
