I grew up with these buttery popovers served with homemade turkey noodle soup. Very easy to make and tasty. DO NOT open the oven until done!

For the reviewers that had difficulty I need to edit this recipe to say that the butter should be MELTED and "brushed" into the muffin tins didnt realize I forgot that part until now! That COULD be one reason also I would say you need to cook longer so they dont fall that is when I have my biggest issues...we recently moved and our new oven cooks much slower than our previous house so when I make these I have to cook them longer than usual. Good luck! And I only use white flour for these not sure if you are using a different type? Read More

I tried these all though easy they do not keep there puffed shape they fall quickly but they are soft & good I cooked for 40 min to get golden color there more like a soft bisquits & good with cinnamon honey butter. But for a pop over I wouldn't do again I like them to stay puffed & crunchy on outside & soft inside..theses ones are just soft. Read More

This is the best and easy recipe ever. I followed all the directions and these popovers came out just right nice and crispy on the outside fully cooked and soft on the inside. These were better than any restaurant popovers we ever tried and we tried lots of them. Do make sure you butter the inside of the muffin tins with the melted butter. Highly recommend this recipe!!!

I've never tried a better popover recipe. They rise up like little chef's hats. They are crunchy on the outside and smooth on the inside. Easy to make too! This is now my standard recipe for popovers! Read More

2 eggs are sufficient. Also bake for 15 minutes in a hot oven (475 degrees) then lower oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Popovers remain crispy on the outside moist and soft on the inside and do not collapse. Using a popover pan is important. Read More
