These popovers turn out every time and the best part is you do not need a popover pan! Add any seasoning you wish to these popovers.

I was nervous making these b/c there is a pricy restaurant we visit every blue moon that makes honey butter popovers...and its the only ones we like. I wanted to duplicate them but was worried if this recipe would be "the one." These turned out great! They were hollow light and fluffy. I made some honey butter from this site melted a few TBLS of it and brushed it over the hot popovers. Yeah!! I am very pleased with the result and would make these again! Be sure to grease the muffin pans well! Thanks Christine! Read More

If you want what is essentially a pancake in a muffin cup then this recipe is for you. Otherwise forget it. This recipe WILL NOT give you popovers. More like poopovers. Read More

I've struggled to make just right popovers for years. I had finally given up until I found this recipe. Turned out beautifully! I like to make the batter in the blender making it very easy to pour into the muffin cups (but be careful not to overmix). And it's easily scalable to 4 or 8 popovers. Read More

I've been making popovers for over 20 years and this is one of the best recipes. I really prefer the cold oven recipes over the other. One thing you just MUST remember about baking popovers: NEVER use the paper liners. The batter must be able to rise up the sides of the muffin cup. A paper liner hinders this. Thanks for this recipe.

You can't get any easier than this!!! What a great recipe. These popovers were nice and tall and the flavor was perfect. I did check them at 25 minutes and they were done. Thanks for the easiest popover recipe ever! Read More

very delicious! Only thing was that they stuck to the muffin liners and they were done at 25 minutes. Made a cinnamon sugar butter spread for them. Read More

30 minutes is way too long. My husband really liked them even though they were crunchy. I will try again and cook for 20 minutes. Read More
