Popovers aka Yorkshire Pudding

These light and airy bread treats have been a favorite of mine for a long time. I really REALLY LOVE them! But be warned, you will have a hard time just eating one!


  • 1 cup milk, room temperature or heat in microwave for 30 seconds
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp butter, chilled


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Spray a popover or muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Place pan on center rack of oven and preheat for 2 minutes.
  4. Lightly blend flour, salt, eggs, milk, and melted butter until it looks like heavy cream, about 1 to 2 minutes, do not overbeat.
  5. Cut chilled butter into 12 small, even pieces. Place 1 piece of butter in each cup and place pan back in oven until butter is melted (about 1 minute).
  6. Fill each cup half full with batter and bake 20 minutes (no peeking… don’t open the door to check on them).
  7.  Reduce heat to 325 F and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes.
  8. Immediately remove from pan.
  9. Serve piping hot with honey butter (see below for recipe), regular butter or jam.

My name is Denise and I love good food, but enjoy preparing it more. I spend a good portion of my free time searching recipes, experimenting in the kitchen and coming up with tasty creations. Some of my other favorite things are my pets, family, friends, traveling (especially to tropical destinations and Paris), the beach, music, movies, and shopping, to name just a few ;)
