Popovers are a light roll made from an egg batter.  They are mostly made of a crisp outer shell with little and moist material on the inside.  Try splitting and filling with dried beef gravy for a quick dinner or serve with ho

The secret to creating a light and airy popover is to avoid overmixing and to utilize a very hot oven.  I like to start with a hot popover or muffin pan!

You can mix these in a food processor or in a bowl with a whisk.

Old Fashioned Popovers

  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 8 popovers 1x


  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon melted butter (I never recommend using margarine or vegetable spreads in place of butter)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 F
  2. Add flour to a large bowl – creating a well in the center of the flour
  3. Add salt to the well
  4. Gradually add the milk. Stir until smooth
  5. Add eggs and blend well
  6. Add melted butter. Beat until smooth
  7. Scoop into greased muffin pan, filling each slot one-third full
  8. Bake for approximately 25 minutes
  9. Reduce heat to 350 F and bake for approximately 15 minutes longer or until popovers are a deep golden brown


I like to bake them in a preheated popover pan or muffin pan.
