Popovers at My Sister’s House

I’m here in Pennsylvania visiting my sister and she MADE ME POPOVERS!! YAY!! She has a great recipe. Her whole family got together and shared all their recipes in a family cookbook. My sister has some real chefs in her family. One of her granddaughters, Amanda, graduated from The Philadelphia Art Institute with a culinary degree of some sort. I’m going to be featuring some of her recipes in the future.

However, this recipe is one from Susan Branch and it’s a really easy and good one.
Aren’t these gorgeous? They actually POP up.



3 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 TBSP melted butter
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. unbleached flour

Spread butter in 12 cups of a muffin pan.
Beat all ingredients together until smooth. Fill muffin pans 2/3 full.
Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.
Take them out – slit the tops and return them to the oven for another 5 or 10 minutes.

They are AWESOMELY yummy but not sweet.



See this stuff? It’s Lemon Curd  and it is delicious! Store bought, all done and ready to put on a fresh out-of-the-oven popover.

Here it is with the lemon curd. Oh, thank you, Carol, for making these.

They disappeared pretty quickly after we (my Mom and I) appeared.


Mom and I have a recipe for cream puffs and these are similar but not quite the same. Actually, popovers are a lot easier to make than cream puffs.

Here are a few links to other popover recipes:

Angel Food Garden has a recipe for a single large Vegetable Popover.

Martha Stewart has a recipe for Giant Cheese Popovers.

Epicurious has a Mini Provolone Popover Recipe.

Did you ever try popovers with lemon curd? It’s WONDERFUL!
We hope you enjoy this recipe!!
Love to all,
Linda and Carol
