My Grandmother’s Favorite

There are just a few things that my family and I know to be my grandma's favorite treats: chocolate covered cherries, pineapple upside down cake, and POPOVERS! If you have never had a popover you truly are missing out. I recently discovered what I consider the 3 keys to making sure your popovers, well…pop:)


2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp. salt

4 large eggs

2 cups milk

Preheat your oven (and popover pan-secret number 1) to 400 F degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine flour and salt. In a pot whisk together eggs and milk, cook over medium heat until slightly warmer than room temperature (this is another secret!). Now combine egg mixture to the flour mixture, stir until just combined-do not over stir. Lightly grease your now warm popover pan if using spray butter (if using stick butter you may want to grease the pan before heating it). Fill pan cups until just under 2/3 full with batter. Bake at 400 F degrees for 20 minutes, then decrease heat to 350 F degrees and bake for another 20 minutes. Do not open the oven to check on them in between, this can cause them to deflate (secret number 3!). Makes 12 medium size popovers.

Grandma would have been proud.

I think it’s the same as a yorkshire pudding! Do you eat them with gravy?

yummmmmm i loooooove popovers!!! my grandma made them all the time whenever we went over there for roast beef dinner on sundays when i was little. (i believe they are the exact same thing as yorkshire pudding, just smaller versions) i love how they are the perfect home for a little pool of gravy :) one year for my birthday a couple years ago a friend made me an entire tray of popovers as a birthday present – best gift ever!

They look so delicious! I love popovers (Although here we call them Yorkshire Puddings) Great with Gravy, Stuffing, Potato’s and Veg :) Yummy!

I’m in the process of making these! I hope they turn out well; I’ve never had a popover before.

They’re Yorkshire Puddings! I’m from Yorkshire! Doesn’t matter what the size, they’re still Yorkshires haha :) xx

These are amazing! I adjusted the times for my old oven which can be unpredictable at times &they came out perfect! Seriously delicious that I think I just ate 3…or 4. I don’t even care because they’re so good. thanks!

what do you do with the popovers? what do you eat them with???

Emma January 18, 2012 at 9:54 pm

Wow. These look delicious, I have all the ingredients except a popover pan. Is it possible to make them with a muffin pan or would that ruin it all??? Thanks!! :)
