Classic Popovers at Everyday Maven


March 6, 2013

Recipe: Classic Popovers

You know when you meet someone and you just instantly like them? Instantly feel comfortable, swapping stories and sharing secrets, and laughing out loud?


Classic Popovers…that are also Foolproof!

Such was my experience meeting Alyssa of Everyday Maven at a Bloggers Breakfast this past Spring. We quickly sniffed each other out for the East Coasters that we are (you can spot us coming a mile away here in Seattle), and before we knew it drinks had been planned, dinner parties put on the books, and tips for where to get the best Boston/Philadelphia style subs, pizzas, and more traded.

As such, I am thrilled to be guest posting over at Everyday Maven today with a tried-and-true, you-can’t-mess-this-up, I-promise-you-can-do-it recipe for Classic Popovers that are a perfect addition to breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

So Pop on Over (sorry, I couldn’t resist) to Everyday Maven for the recipe and suggested meals to pair them with.


This recipe is best in a popover tin, but nearly as good in a regular old muffin pan.

    Thanks for bringing popovers, ie ” moments of wonder” back to our attention.
    AND, for bringing Everyday Maven to my attention as well.

      You’re welcome!

      My popover pan doesn’t hold a candle to your skillet variety, but it’ll do for now.

      And yes, you’ll adore Everyday Maven…have fun exploring!

  3. I made popovers not too long ago, but I didn’t post them. I think you really do need the popover pan to get the full effect. However, even though I do not have the pan I would make them again. They are really good!

    • Shut Up & Cook says:

      I agree…the popover pan takes it to the next level, although what’s nice with muffin tins (or even mini muffin tins) is that they don’t “fall” and you can reheat them the next day.

    Oh Erina, popovers totally remind me of growing up! My mom baked them all the time, and I loved when we went out to eat at Anthony’s Pier 4 and the waiters would walk around with baskets of them and drop them on our plates. I always stuffed myself before dinner arrived! Your popovers are beautiful. I’m popping over (love that!) to check out your guest post.

    • Shut Up & Cook says:

      Thanks Hannah! Isn’t it funny…I don’t think I’ve ever had one in a Seattle restaurant. Hopefully they’ll be making a come back as I can think of nothing better than to spoil my dinner with.

  5. I want a popover pan!!
    These popovers look so golden brown and gorgeous.

    • Shut Up & Cook says:

      I just got one this year…so don’t feel badly. If all you’ve got is a muffin tin, that’ll do the trick, though the popover pan is undeniably a nice addition.

  6. Ann says:

    How fun to meet a kindred spirit in an unlikely way. I love popovers and look forward to reading your secrets to getting them to pop (mine always fall flat). Thanks for the introduction to Alyssa’s blog!

    • Shut Up & Cook says:

      The trick is to really beat the batter, and then let it rest, and then no opening the oven door. I promise these will work!

  7. I’ve tried popovers but without the nifty popover pan. I’m definitely going to have to invest in one!

  8. Mouthwatering!! And I always get sooo excited meeting my blogging “colleagues” in real life 🙂
