Crispy and delicious, and easy to make. Why not try these for lunch, or as sandwiches?


Cake flour
50 g
50 ml
a pinch
1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon


1. Rub some melted butter (not listed) into the cups or molds. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
2. Put the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl and mix.
3. In another bowl, bear the eggs and mix together with the milk. Add the melted butter and mix in.
4. Add the Step 3 liquid to the Step 2 bowl little by little, mixing so that no lumps form. Pour the batter into the cups or molds, and bake at 200°C for 30 to 35 minutes.
5. Try popovers and chicken with chicken ham made with shio-koji.
6. This is one I made with a twist on osechi (New Year's feast food). Thin out some kuri kinton (sweet chestnut with paste) with cream, and stuff it into a popover like a Mont Blanc cake.
7. A cut open popover looks like this inside. This one is a bit burned. The insides will be hollow.
8. I used these muffin cups, filled 70-80% full.
9. This is a no. 8 size cup. With these this recipe, you can make 6 of these.
10. These are large popovers made in the no. 8 muffin cups shown above. They are about the size of small hamburgers.
11. Mini popovers.
