These light and airy popovers are given a touch of aromatic citrus with the addition of finely grated lemon zest. Try using Meyer lemons for a more mild hint of zest.


  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and brush a non-stick muffin tin with 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Place the tin into the oven for 5 minutes to brown the butter.
  2. In the meantime, place the eggs, sugar and lemon zest into a bowl and whisk vigorously until blended. Add the milk and the remaining melted butter, and continue to whisk until combined. In a separate bowl, stir the flour, baking powder and salt together and then add to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until the batter is relatively smooth with small lumps.
  3. Fill the prepared muffin tin cups halfway-full with the batter and then place in the oven for 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
