HOW DO YOU MAKE POPOVERS?
There are many different methods when it comes to making popovers, so want the batter to rest for an hour or more before you bake them. Some want the batter warm. My method is preheating the pan in the oven to get that nice and warm and pouring the batter which consists of some simple ingredients and watch them rise and bake from there.

WHAT MAKES A POPOVER RISE?
While there are little ingredients in the batter itself, normally consisting of milk, eggs and flour. Since the batter is more on the liquid side, it creates steam which in turn rises and makes the popovers rise as well causing the popovers to puff up at the top and outside of the pan.

WHAT CAN YOU USE INSTEAD OF A POPOVER PAN?
While popover pans are actually a cheap investment running anywhere from $5-$30 you can also use a muffin tin. You will get the same effect but they will be smaller and wider as popover pans have steep sided edges that give them their signature look.

CAN POPOVERS BE REHEATED?
The simple answer to this question is yes! But eating them fresh out of the oven is literally the best way to enjoy a popover! You can reheat them by preheating your oven to 450 and placing them in a baking sheet for about 3-5 minutes.

WHY DID MY POPOVERS DEFLATE?
This is the most scary part about baking these! You always run the risk of deflating. While these cook for about 45 minutes in total with you dropping the oven temperature, they will appear to be done on the outside, but will not be cooked on the inside. People remove their popovers too soon when not all the steam accumulated inside is released resulting in them to sink. So even if they look done, keep cooking for the recommended time!
