|Popovers with my homemade fig jam….yum!|
I made them for our second breakfast yesterday morning. Sounds strange I know but, we get up very early and eat soon afterwards. Then, my husband and I always take a morning break together, and have one last cup of tea and coffee before we start our day. Usually only tea and coffee! Most of our morning breaks take place out on our deck, so that we can enjoy our humming birds and the morning sunshine. However, today we also enjoyed wonderful popovers with some fig jam! It was a very good morning! I made six popovers and froze four. A treat for another day!
|I made mine in custard cups…as they baked….|
|they rose out of the cups|
|An odd shape…..|
|but totally delicious!|
|I froze the extras so that we could enjoy these another morning|
|Note to self…make popovers more often|
And a word about Marion Cunningham, who just passed away at age 90. I recently was part of a group that blogged weekly about the women chosen by Gourmet magazine as the 50 Women Game Changers in Food. I could not believe that Ms. Cunningham was not part of that list. She was not only very influential to me and my interest in cooking, but to a whole generation of home cooks. The "Fannie Farmer" was my go to cookbook, while I was learning to cook as a young bride. So here’s to you Marion…Number 1 on my list!
