Herbs de Provence Popovers

adapted from The New Basics Cookbook


2 T. unsalted butter, room temperature
4 eggs, room temperature
1 c. all-purpose flour
½ c. heavy cream
1 c. whole milk
¼ c. Herbs de Provence OR ¼ c. freeze dried chives
1 pinch Kosher salt
1 pinch freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick spray, or a 6-cup large muffin tin – depending on the size of the popovers you’d like.

2. Melt butter in microwave and allow to cool.

3. Combine eggs, flour, salt and pepper in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix until all ingredients are blended.

4. Scrape down the sides with a spatula. Then, with the mixer on low, add the cream, milk and melted butter. Mix until everything is smooth and completely incorporated.

5. Add the chives and fold them in with a spatula.

6. Distribute batter evenly amongst muffin cups, so each cup is roughly 2/3 full of batter. Bake for 35 minutes, or until popovers are poofy and a light golden brown. Serve hot. Or, if you want to save them for dinner, pierce a tiny hole in the top so that they don’t “fall” while you are waiting to serve them.

Naptime Notes

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

Popovers are incredibly versatile, you can add or subtract almost any flavoring to create the exact taste you want. I recommend adding cheese or interesting herbs such as rosemary or thyme for unique variations.

Naptime Stopwatch

As you can see, making the popover batter takes all of two minutes, then it is just a matter of baking. There is hardly an easier way to make a homemade hot snack.

Naptime Reviews

Be mindful of people’s flavoring preferences, my husband is wary of dill so I do not add them it to anything I make, especially popovers. But everything else I’ve tried has been a big hit with him, and my daughter, too.
