  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Speck of baking soda


  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Sift and measure flour, salt and soda. Set aside.
  • Beat the eggs at high speed until lemon colored (2-3 minutes).
  • On slowest speed, very slowly 1/2 cup of the milk. Beat until well mixed.
  • Add slowly (with mixer going on slow speed) the dry ingredients.
  • When mixed, stop beating.
  • Scrape sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  • Beat at medium speed and slowly add the remaining milk.
  • Beat 2 minutes.
  • Place well-greased muffin tin or popover pan into oven to warm up for five minutes.
  • Turn mixer to high speed and beat 5-7 minutes.
  • Batter should be smooth and about the thickness of heavy cream.
  • Pour batter through a strainer, and into well-greased, preheated muffin tins or popover pan.
  • Bake on the middle shelf of the preheated oven at 425° for the first 15 minutes.
  • Without opening the oven, reduce the temperature to 350° and bake 15 - 20 minutes longer.

  • Serve immediately with butter and strawberry jam.
