"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Ingredients:  
4 large eggs, warmed in a cup of hot water for 10 minutes before cracking
1/2 cup milk (skim, low-fat), lukewarm
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons melted butter

Directions:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Position a rack on a lower shelf. The top of the fully risen popovers should be about midway up the oven. What you don't want is for the tops of the popping popovers to be too close to the top of the oven, as they'll burn.

Use a standard 12-cup metal muffin tin, one whose cups are close to 2 1/2" wide x 1 1/2" deep. Grease the pan thoroughly, covering the area between the cups as well as the cups themselves. Make sure the oven is up to temperature before you begin to make the popover batter.

Use a wire whisk to beat together the eggs, milk, and salt. Whisk till the eggs and milk are well combined with no streaks of yolk showing.

Add the flour all at once and beat with a wire whisk till frothy; there shouldn't be any large lumps in the batter, but smaller lumps are okay. OR if you're using a stand mixer, whisk at high speed for 20 seconds. Stop, scrape the sides of the bowl and whisk for an additional 20 to 30 seconds at high speed until frothy.

Stir in the melted butter, combining quickly.

Pour the batter into the muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 full.

Make absolutely certain your oven is 450. Place the pan on a lower shelf in the oven.

Bake the popovers for 20 minutes without opening the oven door. Reduce the heat to 350 (again without opening the oven door) and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until they're a deep, golden brown. If the popovers seem to be browning too quickly, position an oven rack at the very top of the oven, and put a cookie sheet on it, to shield the popovers from direct heat.

Remove them from the oven and stick the tip of a knife into the top of each, to release steam and help prevent sogginess. Slip them from the pan and serve.
