Rye Popovers

"I have my mom's 1954 The New Settlement Cookbook, that she got when she was 17...a couple of years before she married my dad. It may be yellowed and the binding is about to go, but it also has some great classic recipes. This is one of them. I haven't made it yet, but I will. Seems like a great way to make homemade bread and use up some of my old rye flour. Guessing on yield as the recipe doesn't give any indication of how much it makes. While not noted in the original recipe, I think I would mix in some caraway seeds as the last step, or at least sprinkle some across the top."

Very good but mine didn't pop! I used popover pans, so not sure if that made a difference or not. Thanks for sharing!
