Home-Style Popovers

Servings: 12 | Time: 25 minutes to 30 minutes at 425° F

Using a high fat-butter, such as Plugra, makes these popovers extra-rich. This recipe can easily be doubled. Prepare one batch at a time. Preheating the muffin pan prior to filling is an important step for baking popovers; don’t skip it.


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, milk, buttermilk, and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Add flour and salt and whisk until smooth.


  1. Generously grease twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with additional butter. Place the muffin pan in the oven for 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and fill each muffin cup 3/4 of the way full with batter (about 1/4 cup each).


  1. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until puffed and well browned. Do not open the oven until done. Remove from the oven and immediately invert onto a clean kitchen towel and stand them straight up to cool. Serve with whipped butter. Makes 12 popovers.


  1. Tip: *

Allow 1/2 cup of salted Plugra butter to come to room temperature. Whip with a spatula or an electric mixer on low speed until light and airy.
