Hi all! Wishing everyone a belated but hearth felt happy Mother’s Day. I had really good intentions of getting up a Mother’s Day post; but, you know how that goes. Retirement really agrees with me. I was worried about how I would fill my days but checking my calendar of late shows that I have one free day this week. Kinda makes me wonder how I found time to work.
I finished weeding my garden, transplanting from one area to another and admiring my good fortune. This year the okra and green beans seeded and came up on their own. I purchased eggplant, tomatoes and bell peppers as well as a few herbs. I am really looking forward to enjoying the bounty of my efforts. Now if it would only rain. Well it seems that I’m getting off track. Let’s get back to the popovers.
In a few months I will celebrate a milestone…..1 year being gluten free. I feel so good that it makes me think this is something I should have done awhile back. However, being gluten free makes me wish for quality baked goods. After looking at some beautiful popover photos on King Arthur Flour and drooling, I decided that the best gift that my darling husband could give me was a popover pan. A little research and I found one that on Amazon that suited me and our budget.
On Mother’s Day I was given my gift and having never made popovers before I was a bit apprehensive. I took the recipe on King Arthur and modified it slightly and the result was amazing.
2 tablespoons Expandex Modified Tapioca Starch
2 tablespoons almond flour
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk, slightly warm
4 large eggs
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Needless to say I was in gluten free heaven. My next venture will be to add some green onion and try my hand at making green onion popovers. These are on my schedule for Saturday.
