Popovers are always welcome at my dinner table and I should make them more often than I do. The unique pastries have a crisp, browned exterior and an eggy, tender interior, and they are delicious whether they are served with sweet or savory accompaniments. There are specialty popover pans that you can use to make picture-perfect popovers at home. I have one and I love it. That being said, you don’t need a popover pan to make popovers at all. Over at the Craftsy blog (it’s free!), I’m sharing a recipe for great Muffin-Pan Popovers that don’t require any special equipment to make. It only takes a few minutes to whip up the batter, so these popovers can be made on a whim at the end of a long day, not just when you’re serving a special dinner. The popovers made in muffin pans don’t rise quite as high as those made in popover pans, but they still puff up nicely and have all the flavors and textures that you want to find in a popover without investing in additional pans that you probably won’t use all that often.
