HOT BREADS -- Continued
Dissolve one-half cake yeast foam in one-fourth cupful water, 2 cupfuls scalding
milk, butter size of an egg, 1 tablespoonful salt, 4 cupfuls sifted flour. When
milk is lukewarm, add to flour and beat well.
Break 4 eggs into a deep bowl (beat thoroughly at once), add a pinch of salt, 1
full cup of milk, 1 full cup of flour, 1 teaspoonful melted butter. Mix
(In the meantime heat an old-fashioned iron muffin pan, either on top of range
or in oven, just so pan is good and hot.) Bake this from 35 to 45 minutes.
The above will make 1 dozen popovers. The secret in getting this real good is to
heat the muffin pan properly.
