Grandma's Popovers

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
This is an excellent base recipe Debbie! To those complaining about blandness, it's up to you to add whatever spice compliments whatever you are using them for/serving them with: -if for fruit or to serve with jam or honey, add 1/4 tsp. nutmeg & cinnamon...try adding 1/2 tsp. vanilla to batter prior to baking. Pinch of dried lemon or orange peel perhaps? -if for chicken or pork add 1/4 tsp. rubbed sage or ground rosemary & 1/4garlic powder. ( I use 1/2 tsp. but we LOVE garlic). -roast beef with gravy, add 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, sub 1/2 tsp. powdered beef bullion mix for the salt, a generous shake of coarse ground fresh pepper & a couple dashes Worcestershire or Tabasco if you want a bit of a punch. I always use Canola oil to grease the inside of the muffin tins and melt an additional dab (about 1/2 tsp.) of butter in each cup in the oven before pouring the batter in. A preheated pan will increase the loft of the popovers. By using the oil rub first it will lessen the chances of the butter burning if you happen to leave it a minute too long. Make sure you pierce the sides with the point of a sharp knife as soon as possible upon removing them from the oven to minimize falling.

Cherry Cinnamon Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
FABULOUS!! Many thanks to you & your mom for this recipe. Fresh cherry season is in full swing here in B.C., Canada & I wanted something different to do with them, so took your recipe & substituted 4 cups fresh pitted cherries for the 16 oz. can then simmered them in 1/2 cup water and 1 tsp. lemon juice just til softened. I then drained them, reserving the juice to use in lieu of the canned cherry juice & proceeded with your directions. The "pinwheel" cobbler topping was a real hit with both my husband & my son. As you said it looks so nice & cheerful, a real eye-pleaser. Of course a generous side scoop of natural vanilla ice cream was in order. Added this one to my "keeper" file...thanks again!! P.S. To anyone else trying this recipe be SURE to stir juice mixture frequently until the candies are totally dissolved as they tend to stick a bit.
