  • 8 large eggs
  • ¼ cup melted unsalted butter
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 425°.
  • Add the popover pan or muffin tin to a sheet tray and preheat in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, butter, and milk until combined and smooth.
  • Next in a separate large bowl whisk together the flour and salt until combined and then add in the wet ingredients.
  • Whisk until completely smooth and set aside. If you cannot get it completely smooth, add it to a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds.
  • Take the preheated pan out of the oven and immediately spray with non-stick spray. Evenly pour in the batter until each cup is about 2/3 to ¾ of the way full.
  • Bake at 425° for 20 minutes and then at 325° for 10 minutes.
  • Serve.


Chef Notes:
  • Make-Ahead: These are meant to be eaten as soon as they are baked, but they can be made up to 1 day ahead of time. Reheat them before serving.
  • How to Reheat: Place the desired number of popovers on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven at 350° for 3-4 minutes or until hot. You can also cook in the microwave on a microwave-safe plate until hot.
  • How to Store: Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Cover and freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator for 1 day before reheating.
  • You do not have to use a popover pan for this recipe, simply substitute with a large 6 or regular 12 count muffin tin.
  • If you cannot get the batter thin enough when whisking, transfer to a blender and blend on high until it is completely smooth.
  • You may need to cook these in batches if you only have 1 pan.
