Expert Tips

Popovers are the original quick bread. Before the invention of baking powder in 1850, popovers were one of the few types of bread that could be made quickly.

Perfect popovers are easy to achieve. Two tips: Don't underbake, and don't peek! Opening the oven door lets in cool air, which can cause the popovers to fall.
