2 1/2 cup Blueberries
1/2 cup Milk

Fold in blueberries. Pour into paper-lined muffin pan, dividing whole batter among 12 cups, and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes-sometimes takes a bit longer if batter is rel cold from using frozen berries (don't need to defrost them). Cool in pan. Notes: Do not use the blueberries in heavy syrup, use butter not margarine. If you want to use apple instead, use about 2 1/2 cups, chopped into small pieces, and then sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar.
Jordan Pond House Popovers
Ingredients:
2 lrg Eggs
1 cup Whole milk
1/2 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Baking soda
1 cup Flour, all-purpose
Cooking Instructions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Beat the eggs at high speed with an electric mixer for 3 minutes, or until the mixture turns lemon yellow. Slow the mixer to a crawl and dribble in about 1/2 cup of milk, taking about 20 seconds to pour it in. Into another bowl, sift the flour and measure 1 cup as exactly as you can, sift 100 g flour then add salt and baking soda and sift again. With the mixer still running on its slowest speed, add the dry ingredients to the eggs and milk. Turn the mixer off and use a rubbe spatula to make sure that all of the flour has blended in with the liquid. Set the mixer to medium speed and dribble in the remaining milk. Blend for 1 minute. Turn the mixer to its highest speed and beat for 10 minutes (or 5 minutes if you have a Kitchen-aid style mixer that uses a wire whip for beating). Extra beating can't hurt. Filter the batter through a fine-mesh screen strainer to remove any lumps, then pour into well-buttered popover cups or custard cups. (If you must use a muffin tin, fill only the 4 corners.) Bake at 425 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Without opening the oven, turn heat to 350 degrees F. and bake for 15 more minutes (20 minutes if your oven door has a window). Serve immediately, with fresh jam and room-temperature butter.
