I think breakfast (or lunch or dinner) is best served with peanut butter.  These popovers are the perfect vehicle for peanut butter.  You can also serve them solely with syrup, but pass me the peanut butter.
I first learned about popovers from my BFFs Kory and George.  They once served them to me for breakfast and I've loved them ever since (my friends and the popovers)  Popovers are hollow and the size of a delicious muffin. You can serve them as I mentioned with peanut butter and/or syrup, or I bet they would be tasty with some jam.  I was lucky enough to be gifted with a popover pan from my BFFs, but you can also use a muffin tin.
makes 6
1 Tbsp melted butter, plus more for greasing pan
3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
Preheat your oven to 425.  
Place a dab of butter in the bottom of each opening in your pan.  Place your pan in the oven for 2 minutes to get the pan nice and hot.  Meanwhile, whisk together flour, salt, eggs, milk, and melted butter until smooth.  The batter is thin, fill each popover pan a little less than half full.  Bake for 30 minutes.

*A few tips*
The dab of butter gave each of my popovers a cute little "hat"  To avoid this, just spray the pan, but I thought the "hat" made them pretty formal.
Make sure your pan is hot before adding batter.
Don't peek! let your popovers bake for 30 minutes without opening your oven.
Don't overfill your pan! Fill each section no more than half full.
Place popover pan on a cookie sheet just in case you have some overflow.
Serve with peanut butter...just my opinion.
This is a super easy breakfast you just mix and toss in the oven.  Sure to be a crowd-pleaser! Darling Husband said he always forgets how much he likes them.  Guess I need to make them more often!


  1. OMG, I need one of these for breakfast right now! With the PB of course!

  2. Sounds like this is Yorkshire pudding to me. It is usually served with roast beef.
