Easiest Popovers Ever
Popovers do NOT have to be this scary fancy recipe. With a blender bottle and a muffin tray you can have these at home with little to no effort at all. We use a blender bottle to mix these up and they’ve been fantastic. We use a 16 oz blender bottle and while the larger ones might be easier to mix everything at once we’ve done just fine with our little ones.

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Grab your blender bottle and remove the wire ball inside. Otherwise your microwave will remind you. (note if you aren’t comfortable with a microwave or dislike them feel free to melt the butter on the stove top and pour into your bottle)
  3. Using the microwave melt 3 Tablespoons butter in the blender bottle. I usually do a minute the first time then 30 sec increments afterwards. When you have just a little left to melt try swirling the bottle around, you may find that the motion will melt the rest of the butter.
  4. Immediately pour in 1 cup of cold milk and swirl around.
  5. Add the metal ball back into your bottle, then add the two eggs. Make sure the top is screwed on tight and shake it up until well combined.
  6. Once the eggs and milk are combined add in about 1/2 cup of the flour (doesn’t have to be exact) plus the salt if adding. Screw the top back on and shake until well mixed.
  7. Repeat with the remaining flour. May want to check the cap to loosen up any flour stuck to the top. Once all of the flour has been combined you’re good to go. For best result may want to let the batter rest before pouring into the tray, but not required at all.
  8. Evenly pour batter into your muffin tray. We tend the use the popover tray from bon COOK, which makes 12, but I’ve also used the regular muffin tray as well as the mini muffin tray (which FYI makes for a great appetizer that can get stuffed with all kinds of things)
  9. Important. Do NOT put these into the oven until it has hit temperature. You’ll have to be patient here, but it’s worth it. Once the oven has heated up place your tray in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.
  10. At 15 minutes do NOT open the door (I will admit I haven’t tempted fate here) simply adjust the temperature to 350 and set timer for 15 minutes.
  11. Once these come out of the oven you can either poke a hole in them to release the steam and or add a little butter to melt inside which is what we do. Then simply enjoy.
Recipe Notes

We love these as a quick breakfast.  We’ll pair it with some fruit and breakfast sausage.  It’s a nice little breakfast that doesn’t tend to have too much in the way of leftovers.  Extra plus because it’s not really a heavy breakfast either.  Any leftover popovers we do have we simply throw in a Ziploc bag and place in the frig to be enjoyed later.

Disclaimer you will not see me talking about greasing, spraying or flouring a pan or any of that because frankly I don’t do it.  At this point I almost exclusively use the Demarle brand bake ware available through bon COOK (which I am a rep for).  It’s truly been a life saver and made things so easy I don’t even think about it anymore. There are only a few recipes that we pull out our trusty pyrex for, and I can’t remember the last time I used a “regular” pan.  So if you are using a regular pan please, please, please use your favorite method to make it nonstick.
