Traditional Popovers.



If you’re looking for something warm and carbolicious for breakfast, this is for you.  Yes, you need a special pan (Don’t attempt with a muffin pan.  Seriously, don’t.) but if you already have the pan, you know how worth it the minor investment is.  This recipe has been passed to me from my step-father, who inherited it from his parents.  He remembers his grandmother making popovers on the weekends, their versatile nature appealing to the whole family.  Serve with fresh fruit preserves (my favorite!), peanut butter, nutella or good ol’ plain butter.


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • room temperature butter for pan greasing
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1 and a half teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 large eggs – room temperature
  • 1 cup whole milk – room temperature


  • preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • grease the inside of the cups in popover pan with room temperature butter
  • blend all ingredients for roughly 30 seconds
  • spoon batter into cups evenly, filling them just less than 1/2 full
  • bake in the center of the oven for 40 minutes
  • remove popovers from oven and allow to slightly cool, but serve warm
