I've made literally dozens and dozens of like but not the same popover recipes. I left the salt out (restrictions), used Pam butter spray to "grease" the large muffin sized pan, but it made no difference, these are by far the easiest and best turned out popovers I have ever made. One must follow the directions exactly and the oven must be properly preheated, but if one does follow exactly, this is a no fail, excellent recipe for popovers without needed speciality pans, butter, extra calories, ect. Excellent.
Recipe was good, but not as good as others I've tried.
Excellent recipe. I tested some variations with 3 of the 6 popover cups. For 3 I preheated the custard cups with a small dab of butter in each. Those 3 rose higher and came out of the cups more easily than the 3 that were not preheated and did not have the dab of butter in the bottom (before adding the batter). Also, to prevent the likelihood of getting too dark, I reduced the temp to 350 after 15 minutes and then reduced the 350 bake time to 15 minutes.
We enjoyed popovers the other night so I thought I'd try this recipe and (with my fingers crossed) hoped that they'd turn out just as good. Well, they did! I did take another's advice who stated that they added 1 tsp of vanilla to the batter. Also, after I reduced the heat to 350 degrees, I only had to bake for 10 min (thus, total baking time was 30 min). Had I baked any longer, these goodies would have been burnt. Although they taste just as good as "Cold Oven Popoevrs" (also found on this site), I like that recipe a little better b/c you aren't messing with the oven temp. Still, excellent recipe with excellent results!! One last thing, I made "Cinnamon Honey Butter" (again, from this site) and spread it inside the warm popovers...yup! I'm in heaven!! Thanks Christy!
I have been making popovers now for over 20 years. I thought that I might have a lead hand. When they popped they did not taste very good and when they did not pop so much, the flavor was good. This recipe is my very first success. I used popover pans that are non-stick and I never thought to butter the outside top of the pans but next time I will because that is how huge they ended up being. I cannot thank you enough. I also reduced the cooking time and put a dot of butter in the bottom of each tin. Wonderful
Ok, I don't want to rate this yet becuase evidently it is me that is the problem, not the recipe. I tried making these twice..folling the directions exactly and being careful not to over mix. The second time I tried baking at 450 for 15 min and then 350 for 15 min...each time the same thing happens. They fall in the middle and they are heavy like a paperweight.
Someone please let me know what I am doing wrong.
This is a really good popover recipe, the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because of the directions. Popovers "pop" better when a) the milk and eggs are room temperature before mixing and b) the pan is preheated. If you follow those two easy steps along with this recipe you'll have perfect popovers every time. I've made this recipe several times and will continue to do so!
These Popovers come out crusty on the outside, and soft in the center, almost like churos! I add 1/2t. vanilla to the batter. For serving, I have a bowl of cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle on them (once they've been torn open). My husband loves them, so I make them as a weekend breakfast treat.
