This is another in a long string of attempts to recreate the delicious popovers from the Jordan Pond House Restaurant in Acadia National Park. My wife and I had afternoon tea there while on our honeymoon years ago; the restaurant has been around since the late 1800’s, and they’re famous for their popovers. You can enjoy them with butter or jam, or they’re delicious with some homemade ice cream.
We bought the Jordan Pond House cookbook. It’s a tiny little book with recipes and stories, and over the years we’ve tried making the popovers. Usually they taste delicious, but we can never get them to puff up into the softball-sized shells they should be. I even bought a popover tin, but I think our lack of a convection oven might be holding us back. Experienced bakers, any thoughts?
