Air Fryer Popover

I have been wanting to make home made popovers. A popover is a light roll made from an egg batter similar to Yorkshire pudding. While they seem large and fluffy, the insides come out somewhat hollow in the middle. 
I found several recipes that are super easy but there is one problem. To make real popovers, I would have to purchase a special popover pan. It looks similar to a muffin pan but are specially made with chambers that air can flow around them causing the dough to puff and, well, “pop over” the pan. 

I was determined to try making popovers but I knew I did not have a special pan nor did I need a dozen of them in my diet. So....
I made my own recipe to create just one popover by using my air fryer. I did not want to heat the oven up for a single serving and besides, I love my air fryer. 

I think it turned out great and made a delicious portion controlled breakfast that kept me full until lunch time. It did not include any sugar until I decided to sprinkle powdered sugar on top. This one reminded me more of a dutch baby pancake but I’m just happy that it tasted so good, and let’s face it, It did “pop over” in it’s own little way. 

I plan to get one of those popover pans soon. Well, soon as I can find one I can afford. 

Air Fryer Popover (single serve)
1/4 Cup- all purpose flour
Pinch of salt
1/4 Cup- milk (I used almond milk)
1 Large egg

Mix flour and salt together.
Whisk milk and egg together.
Pour egg mixture into the flour mixture.
Mix until blended but do not over mix.
Pour into a buttered ramekin or mug.
Add a few berries for some sweetness (optional)
Bake in air fryer at 350 for 15 minutes. 

Top with powered sugar or syrup for a sweet treat.
