Perfect Popover Recipe {Super Easy}

Breakfast is my favorite meal. It always has been and I don't see that changing any time soon, especially after making my own popovers. There is nothing more delightful than a cup of coffee alongside a popover with a slab of honey butter or Nutella. But just so we're clear, popovers aren't only for breakfast... they make for perfect dinner rolls as well. 

If you've never had a popover, you're in for a treat!  They're truly delicious. Popovers are a tall, hollow, and light roll that is made of an egg batter. They are best right out of the oven, but they also reheat quite nicely. 

Easy Popovers

Makes 6 Large Popovers


2 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 400*F and grease and flour six 6-oz custard cups or a popover pan (or a muffin pan).

In a small mixing bowl, lightly whisk the eggs. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.

Fill the Popover cups until 1/2 full and bake for 20 minutes. After the initial bake time, reduce the oven temperature to 350*F and bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Remove the popovers from the pan and serve them hot!

Tips and Tricks:

Do not open the oven until the popovers have cooked for at least 35 minutes, as they could collapse.

To prevent sinking, gently pierce the side of each popover with a knife so that the heat can release as soon as they come out of the oven.

    1. Thank you Cathy. Taller pans make taller popovers- more room to rise. But any pan will make a delicious popover with this recipe!
