Have you ever made popovers? They are very simple to make as long as you follow the instructions carefully. My kids absolutely LOVE these!
These are simple to make and don’t require many ingredients:
>2 eggs, well-beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
<1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon melted butter
Beat until smooth. Fill well-greased silicone muffin pan cups 1/3 full. It is very, very important not to over-fill them. Err on the side of having too little batter in the cup!!
And here is the tricky part… Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F. Place the muffin pans in the oven for 15 minutes. When the timer goes off DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN, but reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for another 15 minutes.
There have been times when I’ve opened the oven or over-filled the muffin pan and the popovers don’t pop and become light and airy… they become a solid biscuit type food instead! They’re still good, but don’t compare to the real thing!
I often will make these with soups and my kids absolutely LOVE these! If you give them a try, I’d love to hear from you over at the Homeschool Den Facebook Page. I’m curious to see if your family likes them as much as ours does!

Hi! I’m Liesl!
Do you believe education can be exciting, inspiring, and full of joy? We do too! I love the quote by William Butler Yeats, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." It's about getting the kids involved, engaged, and fired up about learning (while juggling the rest of life too!)
A bit about me: I have my Master's from Brown University. I have more than 20 years of teaching experience. I was a high school teacher for many years both in the U.S. and internationally and also taught for the University of Maryland before leaving to homeschool my 3 wonderful kids.
