  • 1 cup (245g) milk
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • ½ cup sourdough starter
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour


  • ½ cup butter, softened (I used unsalted)
  • ¼ cup (50g) brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon



  • Place a cold popover or muffin pan in the oven and heat to 450°F as you prepare the popover batter.
  • Heat up the milk in a microwave (or in a saucepan on the stove) just until it begins to warm up. You don't want hot, just warm.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the room temperature eggs, sourdough starter, salt, and warm milk.
  • Add in the flour, mixing gently with a whisk (making sure to not overmix). The batter should not be very thick (thinner than pancake better) and a few lumps are okay.
  • Once the popover or muffin pan has been heated, CAREFULLY remove it from the oven and spray it with nonstick spray.
  • Pour the batter into the cups of the pan. Fill each popover cup almost to the top. (This applies to a muffin pan, if you are using a popover pan fill about half-way.)
  • Bake the popovers for 15 minutes at 450°F. THEN, reduce the heat to 375°F, baking them an additional 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm with the cinnamon sugar butter.


  • In a medium bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon with a hand mixer. (If mixing by hand use a whisk and mix for about 4-5 minutes until not grainy.) Spread it on a warm popover.
