2 eggs, preferably local, free-rang eggs
1 c AP flour
2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 c. Milk
Zest of 1/2 lemon
1 Tbsp. Agave nectar
2 Tbs. Butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine flour, eggs, salt, milk, zest and 1 tbs. of melted butter. Mix all ingredients, but be careful not to overwork. Some lumps are perfectly fine. With the other tbsp. of butter, liberally grease each cup in a popover or muffin pan. Fill batter about three quarters of the way up the individual cups. Bake for about 18 minutes. Then lower the oven to 350 degrees and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the popovers are puffy and golden brown.

For savory variety, include chopped herbs or spices into the batter before baking.
