Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.
What to do:
You will need - workmat, scales, measuring jug, teaspoon, pastry brush, large 6-hole muffin tray, baking tray, cup, fork or whisk, mixing, bowl, scissors, oven gloves (for adult use)
Before cooking, wash your hands and put an apron on. Weigh and measure all the ingredients. Ask a grown-up to preheat the oven to 200°C (fan), 220°C, Gas 7.
Oil the muffin cases using the pastry brush and vegetable oil and place them on a baking tray. Break the egg into your cup – check it and beat it with the fork. Put the flour into the mixing bowl and add the egg and stir.
Add the milk to the mixing bowl and stir again until you have lots of bubbles and all the flour disappears.
Add the mustard. This mixture is called a batter. Pour the batter from the mixing bowl into the measuring jug that had the milk in it. You may not need all the batter, depending on the size of your baking container.
Tear up the mushrooms and divide the pieces between the muffin cups. (Ask a grown-up to help you with the scissors.) Using the scissors, cut up the bacon into small pieces and divide this up between the muffin cups too. Then chop the tomatoes in the cup that had the egg in and share equal amounts of this between the muffin cups. Finally, pour the batter over the top.
You’ll need to ask a grown-up for help with this part. Put it in the preheated oven for 15–20 minutes until brown on top. Once the Playtime Popovers have cooled down a little, you can eat them with a glass of juice.
