WHY ARE THEY CALLED POPOVERS?

The notion of the name really is because they literally pop over the pan when they are baking. The simple ingredients and heat create the air to accumulate and produce the shape they are.

WHAT CAN I SPREAD ON THESE?

These are great on their own, but they are really multipurpose and you can use any of your favorite spreads. 

Some of my favorites to spread on these include: butter, herb butter, jam, jellies, preserves, peanut butter, Nutella, and more.

CAN I USE ANOTHER PAN?

While they create popover pans which you can easily find at Target, Walmart and Amazon, but if you do not have one no worries.

You can use a standard muffin/cupcake pan for these, they will be smaller and the baking time will need to be adjusted but they will still work.

HOW TO STORE:

These can be stored in an airtight container or bag where you can keep them in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. I do not suggest freezing these.

To reheat place back in the oven at 450 for about 5 minutes until warmed through.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Make sure you do not open the oven while these are baking, otherwise they can deflate.
  • Place these on the lowest rack in the oven so they do not burn but still will get a nice golden color.
  • You can use a muffin/cupcake pan in place of a popover pan.
  • We do not recommend freezing.
  • Serve with any of your favorite spread, see above for some ideas.
