These popovers are amazing. They are so light and flaky, and you don't even need butter.
- 1/3 cup Corn Starch
- 2/3 cup rice flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup dairy free butter
- 1 drop doTERRA Cardamom Essential Oil
- 4 room temperature eggs
- Chopped Chives - optional
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix together the corn starch, rice flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in bowl for a mixer. Set aside.
Boil the water and butter until the butter has melted. Add to the flour mixture along with Cardamom Essential Oil and blend with a mixer 2 minutes, scraping sides if necessary. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Mix the eggs in one at a time.
Pour into greased muffin tin dividing to make 12 popovers. Top with chives if using. Bake for 20 minutes. Do not open door. Turn oven down to 350 and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
Remove from muffin tins and let cool a few minutes.
NOTE: When you top these with chives, it will reduce the height of the finished popovers slightly. Adding cheese is another option, but it reduces the rise quite a bit.
Optional: You can also add garlic or onion powder for an even more savory taste.
