All this No Sugar No Grains way of eating makes a girl miss the simple joy of a baked good. I redid this ol' recipe to make it qualify for NSNG, but also give you the feeling of indulging on a buttery, hot breakfast treat.
Coconut Flour Orange Popovers
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest (please tell me you've bought the Microplane)
1 can of full fat coconut milk (usually 12-13 oz size)
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 rounded teaspoon Xanthan gum
3-5 tablespoons of water (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, coconut milk, and orange zest. The coconut milk will come out of the can a little chunky. Don’t be alarmed—just keep whisking until smooth. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of the melted butter. In another bowl, whisk the coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt until evenly blended. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until only small lumps remain. Add in water to batter 1 tablespoon at a time to moisten as needed.
Brush the cups of a muffin pan with the remaining 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Heat the pan in the oven for 5 minutes so the butter turns a nutty brown (love it). Fill the muffin cups half to almost full with batter. Bake popovers for 30-35 minutes, until risen and browned. Serve with butter and eat straightaway!
