Whole Wheat Popovers

These light and airy popovers have a crisp crust and offer the healthy benefits of whole wheat flour. They are delicious on their own, but we also liked them dipped in olive oil (moderation is the key) or topped with honey or low-fat yogurt.

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
2 large eggs
2 egg whites
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Vegetable cooking spray


Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk together milk and next 3 ingredients. Whisk milk mixture into flour mixture, whisking until smooth.

Place popover pans or 6 (8-ounce) custard cups heavily coated with cooking spray in a 450° oven 3 minutes or until a drop of water sizzles when dropped in them. Remove pans from oven, and place on a baking sheet, filling cups half full with batter.

Bake at 425° for 30 minutes. Turn oven off; remove pans from oven. Cut a small slit in popover tops; return to oven. Let popovers stand in closed oven 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
