This popovers recipe is fast and easy: bake them up in a muffin pan! They’re an easy side dish you can bake while dinner’s cooking.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter, for greasing


  1. In a blender, add the eggs and blend until whipped and pale yellow.
  2. Microwave the milk 30 to 40 seconds until warm to the touch, but not hot. Add the milk, flour and salt to the blender and blend until just combined into a batter. Allow to rest while the oven is preheating.
  3. Preheat oven to 425F. Place a pizza stone or pizza steel* inside the oven to preheat.
  4. Melt 1/2 tablespoon butter; liberally brush the butter in and around the muffin cups. Place the muffin tin in the oven directly on the pizza stone or peel to preheat.
  5. When the oven is ready, pour the batter into the muffin tin so that each of the 12 cups is about halfway full.
  6. Bake 25 minutes until the popovers are puffed and browned. Allow to cool for a minute or two, then remove from the cups (using a knife to loosen if necessary) and serve hot. Best served immediately. If making in advance, heat them in a 350F oven until warm and crisp, about 5 minutes.


Using a pizza stone helps to regulate the heat inside the oven and ensure consistent baking!
