  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 ½ cup milk room temperature
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter melted


  • Combine all ingredients in the order given and whisk just until combined. Don't overbeat the batter (a bit lumpy is ok). Allow batter to rest while the oven heats.
  • Heat oven to 450°F. Put the popover pan into the oven to heat for 2 minutes.
  • Remove preheated pan from the oven. Spray with cooking spray. Divide the batter out into the tins.
  • Bake at 450°F for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and cook another 15 minutes until golden. Do not open the oven at any point.
  • Pierce popovers with a sharp knife and remove from the tins. Serve immediately.
