Facts. Finds. Flavors. The eggs and milk should be at room temperature so that the popover batter can heat up as quickly as possible during baking, creating the steam necessary to make them “pop over.” It’s also important to use the popover batter as soon as it’s made to prevent the popovers from becoming dense.
If using a nonstick popover tin, it’s unnecessary to grease the cups with butter or dust with flour.
Popovers can also be prepared in a standard muffin tin. Prepare 20 muffin tin cups and pour about 3 tablespoons batter into each cup as directed in steps 1 and 2. Bake popovers as directed in step 3, baking only 10 minutes longer after reducing temperature to 350°.
