These popovers are unbelievable! They are light and fluffy, and they don't have any butter in them, so they aren't very fattening. You will need a popover pan to make this recipe.

This was a great recipie. I did not have a popover pan so just used a muffin tin.. it worked great. I did preheat the pan, as that is what mamma used to do when she made popovers. They turned out great so I took a photo of them. Everyone liked them too. Read More

Overall these did not rise as high as another recipe I use and they were a bit leaden. The other recipe I use of consists of the same ingredients and amounts but the pan is preheated in a 450 oven then the batter is added then they are baked for 15-20 minutes at 450 lower the temp to 375 then bake for 15-20 minutes more. You won't believe the difference they are super super high light crispy yet fluffy. Read More

wonderful popover recipe! a few minor modifications: melted a dime-sized amount of butter in each popover cup in 450 degree oven for 2 min prior to pouring batter into cups (watch close and don't let it burn!). also baked for 15 min at 450 degrees then 375 for 15 minutes per another review's suggestion. also important: do NOT open the oven while baking! turn on the oven light if you must but do NOT open the oven door!!these turned out crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside! can't wait to make them again!

After making a lot of hockey pucks I finally got this down. Let your all of your ingredients get to room temp first. Place oven rack on top shelf place green olive size chunks of butter in bottom of muffin tins then preheat the tin in the oven to allow the butter to melt. After 20 minutes reduce heat and cook only 5-10 minutes longer. Read More

This is my family's traditional recipe - and I use 100 year old pans. The recipe is very dependent on the oven. The expansion is based on quickly cooking the top which captures the steam. With a quickly heating oven a cool pan and oven work well - the top seals while the pan is still cool. If the oven is slow to heat the pan and the oven will need to be preheated and they might not pop quite as high. Read More

These get rave reviews every time I make them. I've even had them described to me as "heavenly". And the recipe is so simple even I can recall it without having to constantly check the computer screen. Read More
