10 min
45 min


2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs, room temperature

1 1/4 cups milk, room temperature

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 450°F. Pour melted butter into wells of popover pan or six (6-ounce) custard cups. Place into oven while preparing batter.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

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

  4. STEP 4

    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.

Tip #1

- Eggs and milk should be at room temperature to help ensure successful popovers. 

Tip #2

- Use solid shortening to grease pan rather than no-stick cooking spray.

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!
