This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. Bill says that if you have any questions feel free to email him - click here or if you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "My friends from the UK will recognize this as a form of Yorkshire Pudding but here is a breakfast version. I found it in a wonderful little booklet by Betty Malisow entitled 'Recipes from Minnesota, with Love' ".


1 cup milk
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 cold greased custard cups (I use a muffin pan with large cups)


Put all ingredients in a bowl. Stir until blended. Disregard lumps. Pour into cold well greased custard cups (or muffin pan). Fill half full. Place in cold oven. Set the oven for 450ºF and set time for 30 minutes. Don't peek . . .

The most asked question:
When you say cold greased cups, do you mean literally "cold", as in put in fridge? I assume by cold oven you meannon-pre-heated, but can you specify what the other cold means?

Cold, just means not hot. I just take the pan out of the cupboard and smear some cold butter on them. The milk and eggs are on the cool side of course. Put everything in the oven before you turn it on, set the timer and leave the room.
