Perfect Popovers

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ellie_

I know there are a lot of recipes for popovers on 'Zaar, in fact I have three other popover recipes listed, but these came out perfect for me (puffed up very high) and I didn't even have to pre-heat the popover tins either! I did use popover pans though and if using popover or muffin tins it is very important only to fill them halfway. Recipe source: local newspaper.

They are exactly the same as the British yorkshire puddings.. and these were excellent! Here's what I did - I made them in a 12-hole muffin tin, poured 2 tablespoons of batter into each well-greased holes and I got in all 20 perfectly popped up and browned popovers! I did not bother with reducing the temp half way through (had it on 220C) and they were ready in 15 minutes all ballooned up and nicely browned! Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe. In my keeper file already!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450-degrees F.
  2. Grease a 6-cup popover pan (or use muffin tins)--very important to grease pan very well. I don't think Pam is good enough - I used both Pam and butter to grease the tins.
  3. In a mixing bowl or large measuring cup whisk together flour and salt.
  4. In another mixing bowl or large measuring cup (I used a 2-cup measuring cup), whisk milk and eggs together until blended.
  5. Add egg/milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring well with a whisk. (If you use the large mesuring cup (mine was 4-cups) it is very easy to pour into the popover tins.).
  6. Pour batter into the prepared popover cups.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes.
  9. Reduce heat to 350-degrees F and bake 20 minutes more.
  10. Serve immediately.
