Easy DIY Kids Crafts & Recipes: Popovers

The only question I had when serving these light, airy delicious popovers was…Why didn’t I make them earlier? At some point, I’d kept this kid-friendly recipe from a Nick Jr. Family magazine, but had never tried it. Then, when I wanted to make corn bread to accompany Turkey Chili, but had no cornmeal in the house, I came across this recipe. The popovers were a hit!

I also wanted to post my son’s Turkey Chili recipe but was asked not to because, in the event that he enters a Chili Cook-off one day, he doesn’t want his secret ingredients exposed! LOL!

Happy baking, hon!

  • Cooking spray or butter for greasing muffin cups
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (I used almond milk to make this non-dairy.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Grease 12 regular-size muffin cups. Grease around the top of the muffin cups to prevent the batter from sticking when the popovers rise.
  2. Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl o high for about 30 to 40 seconds. Set aside.
  3. Crack eggs into a large bowl and mix them with a whisk or wooden spoon.
  4. Mix in the milk, salt, and butter. Add the flour, whisk until batter is very smooth, getting out all of the lumps.
  5. Pour or spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-quarters full.
  6. Bake 15 minutes, then turn down heat to 35o degrees F. Tip: Look through oven window but DO NOT open oven door or the popovers won’t “pop.” Bake another 18 to 20 minutes, until popovers are puffed up and golden brown.
  7. Tip muffin tin over to release popovers. Serve hot or warm with butter or jam.

Yield: 12 popovers
