1 1/4 cups milk
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt


Heat oven to 450°F. Grease popover pan or six (6-ounce) custard cups. Place into oven 5 minutes.

Beat eggs in bowl at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until light and lemon-colored. Add milk; continue beating 1 minute. Add flour and salt; beat until well mixed.

Pour batter into prepared popover pan or custard cups. Bake 15 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Do not open oven door. Continue baking 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Insert knife in popovers to allow steam to escape. Serve immediately.

Recipe Tip

Eggs and milk should be at room temperature to help ensure successful popovers. Use solid shortening to grease pan rather than no-stick cooking spray.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

Just a suggestion: If you use whipping cream instead of milk (at room temp, of course), your popovers will be VERY tall and poofy! Whipping cream makes EVERYTHING taller and poofier. You can even use it to make biscuits. Only 2 ingredients needed to make biscuits. Whipping cream and self-rising flour.
I had enough batter for nine popovers, and the recipe worked great!
I have tried many popover recipes, but none had ever said to use room temp milk and room temp eggs, not only did that make a tremendous difference in the volume of the popovers, they were exceptionally tender. I have also made them with a little grated Land O Lakes chedder cheese added and they were amazing !
This recipe is very good. For something that looks impressive is actually very easy. I love popovers but thought they were complicated to make, not so with this recipe. I use a regular size muffin pan and skip every other hole.
