Excellent! Exactly what I was looking for, and taste just like the popovers I grew up with! I didn't have a popover tin, so I used a muffin tin, and found that the amount of batter actually made 12 popovers instead of 6. so i cut the butter down - 1/4 tsp per muffin tin (12) and reduced the baking time slightly - 15 minutes in 425 degree heat and 10 minutes at 325. They turned out wonderful, very light and very very fluffy. Excellent with some melted honey. This recipe is DEFINITELY a keeper!

I couldn't believe it they came out perfect the first time. And, every time since. I always start with the eggs and milk at room temp and when they come out of the oven I pierce the bottom sides a couple of times with a sharp knife to release steam. Keeps the centers from getting soggy.


My popovers turned out HUGE, about 2x bigger than I expected. I followed the recipe exactly and served them with Cinnamon Honey Butter from this site. My only advice is do not wait for your butter to get bubbly, mine never did. After two minutes the butter just burned so I had to wash it out and start over. The popovers alone were a little bland, but amazing with the Cinnamon Honey Butter. Do NOT open the oven until it's time to take them out, not even for a quick peek!
