Popovers Recipe

Yield: 5


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat oven proof custard cups or ramekins with cooking spray. Place custard cups on a baking sheet.

2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour and the salt. Stir to mix. Set aside.

3. In a separate small bowl, mix the eggs and milk together.

4. Add the egg mixture to the flour and mix until ingredients are moistened. Pour the batter equally into prepared custard cups until each is 2/3rds full.

5. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown and popped up. Open the oven door for 2 to 3 minutes and reduce the oven heat to 325 degrees F. Close the oven door and bake for an additional 15 minutes to set the popovers so that they do not collapse. Remove from oven and serve hot.
