Vlad's popovers

Popovers pictured with whipped honey butter; original serving tray by Randall A. Miller.

Eggs, lightly beaten
Flour, sifted
1 cup
1 teaspoon
Milk, whole
1 cup
Butter, melted
2 tablespoons
  1. Grease a standard 12-cup muffin (or mini-popover) tin.
  2. Combine flour and salt, and beat in eggs.
  3. Gradually stir in milk to form a smooth batter.
  4. Gently stir in melted butter.
  5. Pour into prepared tins; 2/3 full for each cup.
  6. Place in cold oven, set for 425°F, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
  7. Pierce after baking to dry inside.
Personally, I like to tear off a little corner, and drizzle honey and butter inside!

Admission: Be warned, the simple appearance of this recipe is deceptive!

  • It's vital that the milk and eggs are at room temperature (and the bowl you are using); otherwise, the melted butter clumps.
  • So far, using a silicon muffin pan isn't recommended. Found a 12-cup mini-popover tin that does an reasonable job.
  • Do not over grease the pan with butter; keep it light, or use a cooking spray.
  • Integrate the butter in as few strokes as possible, to prevent overworking the mixture.
Recipe from my dear friend Vlad.
