This Recipe Is awesome!!! My Popovers Flattened But I added Some Sugar and Cinnamon and now Their Awesome! Thank You! -ChefKayla


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?
