There is a certain charm to something absurdly easy and impressive. That sort of thing that you can be known for whipping up on a Sunday morning to impress your friends who don't cook, and how no idea that it takes no talent at all. This thing is called a popover. It is delicious.
1 Tb oil or melted butter, plus more for greasing muffin pan
1 cup milk
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup flour
Jam, butter, honey, etc.
Heat oven to 425. Put the pan into the oven to heat while mixing the batter.
Mix the first five ingredients in a bowl until inportated. Add the flour little by little, making sure batter is smooth.
Remove pan or popover tin from oven (with care). Fill each cup 1/2 way.
Bake for 15 minutes at 425, then reduce heat to 350 for another 15 minutes. The popovers should be golden brown and puffed up.
Makes 10-12, depending on tin.
