Popovers are an AMAZING treat that, for some reason, aren’t as popular in this country as they are in England. These big puffy balls, crispy on the outside and just a little bit custardy on the inside, are really quite easy to prepare and make a dramatic breakfast treat.

Because they are basically a souffle, they must be served just-out-of-the-oven, traditionally with orange or strawberry butter.

To make them, you will need 8 or 12 small oven-proof ramekins, a baking sheet to set them on, a mixer, and non-stick spray coating (Pam).
