Christmas morning popover and Champagne pairing

There’s nothing quite like the smell of popovers fresh out of the oven on Christmas morning.

Have you ever had popovers before? Maybe you have, maybe not… if you haven’t found yourself so lucky as to try one of these heavenly gifts from the baking gods, then maybe this holiday season is the time to try making them!

The following recipe for popovers is a very basic version of these baked goods. You can either add things like butter or jam to them, use them for sandwich bread, or even try baking something inside. The possibilities are endless!

You will need:

  • 8 eggs

  • 1 qt bread flour (all purpose will work fine, but bread flour is preferable)

  • 1 qt milk

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup oil

  • 1/2 T salt


  1. Beat flour, milk, butter, and salt. Add the eggs one by one and continue beating while doing so.

  2. Lightly oil popover pan.

  3. Fill each section 3/4 full with popover mix.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes at 450F. Then continue cooking for 20 minutes on 350F. (Don’t open the oven door while they’re cooking! Keep the light on to watch them and take them out once they have turned golden brown.)

  5. Remove from oven, let cool, and ENJOY!

Note: Serve with butter, and a glass of Brut Champagne. Trust us. Primary flavors of apple, cream, almond, and toast are a perfect pairing with these warm, toasty baked goods.
