Have you had popovers? I can't remember how I first came across these, but I've been making them for breakfast for a few years. Tassy and I love them. Dave thinks they're weird. I love their crunchy outside and soft inside. They're kinda like yorkshire puddings and are delicious with maple syrup.

This recipe makes 8 popovers and Tassy and I have 4 each for breakfast. :D Nowadays I always use oil in the muffin holes cos it's easier than using butter. I just realised I didn't include the 25g butter or oil in the mixture I made this morning! They were totally fine.


½ cup flour
2 eggs
¼ tspn salt
½ cup milk
25g butter, melted (or vegetable oil)
extra butter for muffin tin (or vegetable oil)

220C oven

Grease tin with cooking spray. Put a tiny knob of extra butter (or oil) in 8 muffin tin holes. Bake in oven until hot and foaming (or about 10 minutes for the oil).

Sift flour into mixing bowl. Add combined beaten eggs, milk and salt. Mix loosely with a fork. Don’t overbeat – lumps are OK. Add butter (or oil) and carefully mix in.

Spoon into 8 muffin tins.

Bake for approx 10 mins until puffed up and golden. Serve immediately with maple syrup.

If you make them I'd love to know what you think of them!

WOW! I've heard of them on American sites, but I've never eaten them. I'm surprised you've been making them for so long! You're a popover Pioneer!
They look yum yum!
