Popovers are something that Mary Jo has always made and I’m always amazed how they come out of the oven. Super puffy and crispy. A perfect treat for a great breakfast, especially when topped with butter and honey or any kind of jam! She has always been the one to make these and I’d never really watched her make them. They are so easy but the results looks like they would be so hard to make. I finally asked her to put these together and who would have guessed only 4 ingredients. Not me.
Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees. Pour the batter into a popover pan that has been sprayed with some cooking spray. Fill approximately half full. The photo above shows the six popovers and this was the whole batch of batter. Muffin tins will work too, but they are generally not deep enough and the popover will overwhelm the tin. Pre-heating the pan for a couple minutes in the oven will also help the popovers spring up. Place the pan in the oven and keep the door shut. No peeking.
Here’s a photo through our oven window that was about 7 minutes into the baking. If you have a window, it’s easier to see how they are coming. If you don’t, let them bake for 30 minutes then check for brownness.
Tear open the popover and add your favorite sweet topping, butter and enjoy. I like them best with honey drizzled on them, but any fruit jam is also delicious. Make these the next time you are having a nice weekend breakfast. Each popover has an estimated 127 calories before embellishment.
