You'll find these are even lighter and more delightful than those made with wheat flour. They virtually melt in your mouth and deserve a good slather with softened butter while they're still soft.
½ cup brown rice flour
1/3 cup potato starch
¼ cup tapioca flour
½ tsp. fine salt
¼ tsp. xanthan gum
1¼ cups whole milk, heated to 90-100° F
4 large eggs, at room temperature
3 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- Preheat oven to 400°F and grease 12-cup popover or muffin pan.
- Combine rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, salt, and xanthan gum in deep mixing bowl. Whisk well.
- Combine milk, eggs, and melted butter in blender or food processor fitted with steel blade. Blend until smooth. Add flour mixture, and blend until smooth.
- Ladle batter into prepared cups, filling each two-thirds full.
- Bake 25 minutes without opening oven door. Lower temperature to 350°F, and bake 10 minutes more, or until tops are browned.
- Remove pan from oven, and allow popovers to cool in tins 5 minutes.
