Grandma's Popovers Recipe

Still warm from the oven, popovers are always a fun accompaniment to a homey meal. I was raised on these - my grandmother often made them for our Sunday dinners. The recipe could not be simpler. -Debbie Terenzini, Lusby, Maryland
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Beat eggs and milk; whisk into dry ingredients just until combined. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 45 minutes. Grease cups of a popover pan well with butter or oil; fill cups of two-thirds full with batter.
  • 2. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° (do not open oven door). Bake 15 minutes longer or until deep golden brown (do not underbake).
  • 3. Run a table knife or small metal spatula round edges of cups to loosen if necessary. Immediately remove popovers from pan; prick with a small sharp knife to allow steam to escape. Serve immediately. Yield: 6 popovers.

Recipe Note

Editor's Note: You may use greased muffin tins instead of a popover pan. Fill every other cup two-thirds full with batter to avoid crowding the popovers; fill remaining cups with water. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes and 350° for 10 minutes. Yield: 9 popovers.
