- 4 cups milk
- 8 eggs
- 3 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
- 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. salt
In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the milk until just warm to the touch (about 125°F).
In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the eggs, flour, butter, vanilla, salt and milk on medium speed until just blended, then beat the batter for 1 minute. Pass the batter through a chinois or other fine-mesh strainer to remove any lumps.
Using oven mitts, remove the popover pans from the oven and spray the cups with nonstick cooking spray. Divide the batter among the cups and bake until the popovers are puffed and golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve hot.
