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.

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!!!

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?

Nice puffy crispy popovers! I used half a cap full of oil in each muffin cup and it turned out awesome!!!!

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!
