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.
