Can you substitute muffin pan for popover pan?
Absolutely. A popover pan will give you popovers with a taller base and a more defined “mushroom” top, but a muffin pan will bake popovers just fine. And speaking of muffin pans, feel free to use a jumbo Texas muffin pan for six extra-large popovers; bake them for the same amount of time as standard-size popovers.2018-06-14
How do you get popovers to pop?
Bake the popovers for 20 minutes without opening the oven door. Reduce the heat to 350°F (again without opening the door), and bake for an additional 10 minutes, until they’re tall, have “popped” over the tops of the pan, and are a deep, golden brown.2020-09-30

How do you keep popovers from collapsing?
Popovers are best served immediately. They will, unfortunately, begin to collapse after a few minutes outside of the oven. One way to help prevent this is to puncture the top and/or side of the popover with the tip of a small, sharp knife to help release some of the steam trapped inside.2015-05-12
Why are popover pans deeper than muffin pans?
The significant difference between these two pans is that the popover cups are deep and are steep-sided. A typical popover batter can rise higher in these pans than in regular muffin tins. Moreover, the popover pans have the cups welded to a wire rack to promote even circulation of heat and air around the tins.2021-02-01
How do you stop popovers from deflating?
An additional trick for keeping popovers crisp is to gently poke a hole in the side of each one with a sharp knife when you remove it from the pan to allow steam to escape without deflating the crust dome. For our popover recipe, visit www.marthastewart.com/popovers.2013-01-30

What makes the popovers rise?
Unlike cake or bread, popovers use neither baking powder/baking soda nor yeast to provide leavening. Steam is the engine that makes them rise — and rise, and rise!2018-06-14
What makes popovers not rise?
Preheat the oven to 425 with the pan preheating in the oven. When baking don’t open it again until they’re done. If you open the oven door the temperature inside can drop too quickly and the popovers will not rise properly. Whip the batter up really airy right before you add it to the pan they’ll rise extra high.2020-05-15
Why did my popovers sink in the middle?
If your popovers lose volume when they come out of the oven, they are probably underbaked. When these airy baked goods aren’t cooked enough, too much steam stays trapped inside. That moisture condenses once they’re removed from the oven, causing them to collapse.2013-01-30
Are popovers supposed to fall?
You’re under-baking your popovers This steam helps them puff up beautifully when baking, but if the bread is removed before the steam has time to cook out it will condense again. This is why you see popovers fall even after you think they’re done.2020-10-12
What causes popovers to be dense?
You can vary the proportions and the type of flour and milk and the end results all will be fairly similar. If you add more flour, the batter will be heavier and the popovers won’t rise quite as high. The lower the rise, the more dense the bread filling and the smaller the hollow center.2013-06-16

Can I make popovers in a silicone muffin pan?
That said, be aware that the composition of your pan may affect how well your popovers pop: you want to use a material with excellent heat transfer. While some people have success with ceramic custard cups or silicone pans, we prefer to use aluminum or steel/aluminum pans.2018-06-14
What is the secret to popovers?
Preheating the cups jump-starts the cooking. And then there’s oven temperature. “Initially you have it really hot, so you can create steam as quickly as possible,” Marks says, which is what makes a popover pop. But finishing at a cooler temperature ensures the outside doesn’t overcook before the inside stabilizes.2020-10-21
What is the difference between a popover pan and a muffin pan?
Popover pans are distinguished from regular muffin tins by their deep, steep-sided wells. This forces the batter upwards and results in a popover with a puffy dome and crispy sides. Many popover pans have the cups welded to a wire rack. While this looks odd, it promotes even circulation of air and heat around the tins.2011-02-24
