Harvard Club of New York Popovers

From our kitchen to yours, our time-tested recipe!

Total time: 70 minutes
Serves 12

4 eggs
1 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of bread flour
2-3/4 cups of milk, divided
2 tablespoons of shortening to grease muffin pans

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a bowl, mix the eggs, salt, and flour. Stir in a half a cup of the milk and mix until smooth, then add the rest of the milk a little at a time to avoid lumps. Strain the mixture through a sieve and fill 2-3/4 diameter greased muffin pans 1-1/2 inches deep. Place in preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake another 35 minutes.

Chef’s note
A nonstick popover pan results in optimal height.
A standard muffin pan works fine but the popovers will be smaller.
