Although I've always known them as Yorkshire Puddings and have always enjoyed them with roast beef and gravy, you might know these delicious fluffy baked lovelies as popovers! Either way, they are delicious!

Calories: 229 kcal
  • 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1⅓ cups whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or grease from a roast
  1. Whisk the flour, milk, salt and eggs together in a bowl. Stir in the butter and whisk until smooth and thin. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 6 hours to overnight.

  2. Pre-heat the oven to 375°F. Position a rack on a lower shelf.
  3. Remove the batter from the fridge and whisk it again.
  4. Pour a little vegetable oil in each cup of a popover pan or muffin pan and pre-heat the pan in the oven for 10 minutes.

  5. Pour the batter into the cups of the pre-heated pan and transfer the pan to the oven.

  6. Bake for 45 minutes. DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN during this time.

  7. When the popovers are golden brown, transfer the pan to a cooling rack and poke a small slit in each one with a paring knife to release the steam.
  8. Serve immediately with butter or whipped flavored butter.
