If you recall, the non-food highlight of my Valentines day was being able to submit my itemized taxes. As soon as I received notification that my return had been accepted by the IRS, I rushed out to buy this.
Did you know that you can use Bed, Bath & Beyond 20% off coupons at Macy’s?? Well, you can! And on top of that discount, there was a $30 mail-in rebate as well. Thank you Presidents’ Day (and Uncle Sam)!
What to make, what to make first…
I had planned on researching some sort of bread so I could utilize the dough hook, but… I spent a good portion of today in the sun (80’s and sunny = perfect pool weather) which made me a tad on the lazy side. I opted to browse through the Kitchen Aid book to see if there was something I could modify that would use only ingredients I currently had in my kitchen.
Modified Popover Recipe
1/2 Cup Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Tofutti Sour Cream
1/2 Tablespoon Earth Balance
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
Mix ingredients together until smooth. Pour batter into greased/floured, oven-safe ramekins until they are halfway full. Set ramekins on cookie sheet and place in a non-heated oven. Set oven temperature to 425 degrees and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 25 minutes.
My popovers didn’t exactly pop over. This could have had something to do with either the modifications or preheating the oven to 350 prior to reading the cool oven instructions. I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t look every bit as beautiful as the popover I had pictured in my head.
BUT! These dense little flopovers were pretty darn good. They reminded me of a cross between biscuits and French toast, which is a mighty decent combination in my book. So decent, in fact, that I ate all four flops.
