  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Cook Time: 35 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 5 minutes
  • Yield: 24 muffins
  • Category: appetizer, side dish
  • Method: baking
  • Cuisine: American, English

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 10 ounces flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Non stick spray

Equipment

  • Popover tin or medium muffin tin

Instructions

  1. Combine eggs, milk, salt, and butter.  Whisk gently until eggs are completely incorporated.
  2. Add flour and mix until just combined. It is fine if there are a few lumps.
  3. Cover the bowl with a towel and let batter rest at room temperature for at least 20 minutes, up to an hour is preferable.* This allows the gluten in the batter to strengthen and become elastic.
  4. While batter is resting, preheat oven to 450 degrees and place a muffin tin in oven.
  5. After the batter has rested, spray the hot muffin tins with the non stick spray* and fill the tins 1/2 full with batter.
  6. Put the batter filled muffin tin in the oven.
  7. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes, then lower heat to 350 degrees for 20 more minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and place popover on cooling rack.

Notes

*I’ve tried butter (it burns) and I’ve tried olive oil and vegetable oil (they smoke).  Pam non stick spray works best.

Do not open the door while they’re baking! I mean it. They’ll fall. You’ll cry. It’ll just be so sad. Enjoy with butter, jam or as bread for mini popover sandwiches. As an alternative experiment by adding 1/4 cup powdered parmesan cheese or 2 tablespoons of your favorite dried herb mix like Penzey’s Fox Point.
