One of my favorite easy breakfast recipes is popovers.  It consists of basic ingredients that I always have available and it is a nice change from our usual breakfast routine. The kids love watching the popovers grow while in the oven.  They get so excited and immediately start picking which one they are going to eat.  


1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Put the flour and salt in a bowl, make a well in the center, and add the rest of the ingredients.  Mix together until smooth.  Pour the batter into a greased muffin pan (between half and two-thirds full).  Bake for 25 to 35 minutes. Run a knife around the insides of the pan to loosen the popovers. Serve immediately with butter and jelly! Makes 12 popovers.

from the cookbook "Knead It, Punch It, Bake It!"

My oven tends to run pretty hot so I probably let these bake a few minutes too long.  The kids still devoured them quickly!!!  This recipe creates such  a unique soft & hollow type of bread. Popovers are tasty with just a dab of butter on top or served with your favorite jelly. I also like to double this recipe so we have extra to keep for the next morning. Hope you enjoy this easy breakfast also!!



  1. Hi Carissa. Love your blog!! I was wondering for this popover recipe, do you use self rising flour or all purpose? Thank you.

  2. Thanks so much for the sweet comment!!! I always use All-Purpose flour whenever I make popovers. It is such an easy but tasty breakfast recipe!!!
