  1. These were delicious! I halved the recipe since there’s just two of us and made it in a muffin pan, filling each about half full, maybe a little less. I got 9 mini popovers. There was no mess, and they turned out beautiful! We had some with butter and jam and some with nutella. Yum! Thanks for this recipe :)

    1. Hi Ottie! I haven’t tried this recipe with a regular muffin pan, so I can’t say with certainty. If you do try it, you would definitely want to fill the cups less full, and make sure you put the muffin pan on a sheet tray in case there’s any spillover.
