Christmas Morning Popovers Recipe

Popovers have been a Christmas morning tradition in my family for 30 years. I get up early to make the popovers, then wake the family to begin opening gifts. When the popovers are ready, I serve them with lots of butter and assorted jams. My father-in-law began the tradition. —Sue A. Jurack
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, beat the milk, butter, flour and salt until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fill buttered popover pans or large custard cups three-fourths full.
  • 2. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 20 minutes longer or until very firm. Remove from the oven and prick each popover with a sharp knife to allow steam to escape. Serve immediately. Yield: 9 servings.

Recipe Note

Test Kitchen Tip Let the eggs and milk come to room temperature for about 30 minutes before preparing the recipe. Allowing them to warm up results in greater height.
