Mother used to make these all the time to serve with breakfast. What a trip down memory lane. These are chewy and cruncy - like a twist between toast and a biscuit. I will be saving this recipe to make again. Thanks for sharing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grease a 6-cup popover pan with the 1 teaspoon of butter.
  3. Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and process for 30 seconds. Divide the batter evenly between the cups of the popover pan, each should be about 1/3 to 1/2 full. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 40 minutes. Remove the popovers to a cooling rack and pierce each in the top with a knife to allow steam to escape. Serve warm.
