But even with this simple recipe, I managed to have challenges, primarily with the bake times and temps. The recipe calls for baking for 25 minutes at 425 followed by 15-20 minutes at 350. And no opening the door, ever. Well, my oven has a not-so-great window to see in and at about 23 minutes these did not look poofed up high enough (as much as I could tell). So I extended the bake time to 28 minutes and at that time I realized my mistake by ever so slight smell of burnt dough wafting through the house. I quickly turned the heat down but the damage was done. The outer crust was a bit crispy and burnt. The insides were not so custardy, but they tasted fine (the insides only). My husband managed to eat 4 in one sitting so they obviously were not that bad. And one could tell what they were supposed to be like.
And here is Rhiannon, excited for her popover; this is the first recipe she has been able to eat!
