Classic popovers are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, require no yeast and are so easy to make. They’re delicious warm and slathered with honey butter.

A while back, Steve and I got together with his sister and her husband for dinner. I had asked her to bring a salad and she also brought the ingredients to make popovers. I had never made popovers before and so I had no idea just how easy they were to make.

Let’s start with the fact that there are just four ingredients. That’s right, four very simple ingredients that you probably have on hand right now.

  Milk, flour, salt and eggs……that’s it.  Just whisk the ingredients together pour into  a popover pan and bake. In less than an hour, start to finish, you have these amazingly delicious popovers.

 

They are crispy, golden brown on the outside, tender and light on the inside. My favorite way to eat them is with butter and a little honey.  

They are absolute perfection and are sure to impress anyone you make them for. Just don’t let on as to how easy they are to make!

These are definitely best served warm. If you make them ahead of time, you can pop them back into the oven for about 5 minutes or so to reheat them.

Questions about making popovers:

Do I have to use a popovers pan?

  • If you don’t have a popover pan you can use a muffin pan.  But instead of making 6 popovers, you’ll divide the batter between 8 muffin cups. Once you reduce the temperature, watch them closely, they will probably be finished a couple minutes earlier.

Can I reheat heat them if I don’t want to eat them right away?

  • Absolutely! Just reheat heat them in a 300 degree oven for about 5 minutes.

What kind of milk should I use?

  • I use whole milk because that’s what I keep on hand, but you can use any milk that you have on hand. I wouldn’t recommend using half and half or cream.

What are some other bread recipes that don’t require yeast?
