Popovers #2

Sift one cup flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt together. Beat one egg and add 1 cup milk to it. Stir this gradually into the flour to make a smooth thin batter.

Beat hard with an egg beater whipping in the air bubbles. The more beating, the higher the popovers will rise.

Fill greased, heated muffin pans half full of the batter. Bake in a very hot oven (450 degrees F.) for one-half hour, then reduce heat to about 350 degrees F. for fifteen minutes when popovers will be "popped" and brown.

Serve hot and at once, with butter and jam or honey.
