I've made popovers several times in the past, and I've never had any issues. It wasn't until I was looking for a recipe tonight that I realized how many things can go wrong. Since I had no idea what I was doing before, we'll just chalk my previous popover experiences up to good luck.
I wanted an easy bread for dinner tonight. Popovers require no proofing, no kneading, and you can even mix them by hand. I used this recipe.
Everything out and ready to go.
Ready to head into the oven
Out of the oven. Not as "poppy" as I'd like, but they were still quite tasty. Yum.
