    Butter the popover pan so that the batter does NOT stick to the sides and the popovers can spill over the top without sticking and exploding everywhere.

  • Step 5

    Pour the batter into the buttered popover pan and then bake at 350°F for 30-45 minutes.

    #SpoonTip: A really great way to make sure that your popovers are extra special and delicious is to cook them at different intervals at different temperatures. Start at 425°F and cook the batter for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to the standard 350ºF and cook for the rest of the time.
