• 1 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch chili powder (optional)


  1. Grease a popover pan with oil.
  2. In a small bowl or large glass measuring cup, whisk together the milk and eggs until well combined.
  3. Whisk in the flour, salt and chili powder (if using) until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the mixture into the popover pan cups until each one is about 2/3 full.
  5. Place the pan in a cold oven and set the temperature to 450 degrees.
  6. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the popovers have risen and are golden brown.
  7. Allow to cool slightly, and carefully remove the popovers from the pan.
  8. Serve warm with butter or jam.

The original recipe for these popovers comes from the one and only Chef John, and can be found here.
