Yield: 6 large or 9 medium popovers


  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup minus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (about 1 1/2 ounces)


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Generously grease six 2/3 cup popover tins or nine 1/2 cup muffin tins.
  2. In a bowl whisk together eggs, milk, and water.
  3. Add flour and whisk mixture until combined well but still slightly lumpy.
  4. Mince garlic and mash with salt.
  5. Whisk garlic paste into batter and divide half of batter among tins.
  6. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Parmesan over batter in tins and divide remaining batter among tins.
  7. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan over popovers and bake in lower third of oven 45 minutes.
  8. Cut a slit about 1/2 inch long on top of each popover with a small sharp knife and bake 10 minutes more. (Popovers will not rise much because of Parmesan).
