When you can’t get to Seal Harbor, Maine, to eat the famous popovers at Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park, try making them at home instead.

Popover Ingredients

2 large eggs

1 cup whole milk (skim or 2% won’t do)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour


Preheat oven to 450 degrees

In a medium bowl, whip eggs briskly by hand with a whisk (or in a mixer set on high) for three minutes

Gradually add half the milk, hand whisking (or machine mixing) very slowly

Continue to whisk slowly while gradually add the combined dry ingredients

Scrape the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula (mixer off) to be sure all the ingredients are fully blended, and whisk some more

Keep whisking slowly while dripping in the remain milk, and continue until the mixture is smooth and even with no lumps

Pour batter into greased muffin tins, filling them 3/4 full

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes

Without opening the oven door, reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and bake another 15 minutes

Remove popovers from tins immediately so they don’t continue to brown on bottom, and cool them on a wire screen

Serve the still-warm popovers with butter and jam
