This was my first time making (and eating, for that matter!) popovers, and I am really pleased with the experience! These rose beautifully, and the melty cheese on the inside was a huge hit with my crew. I doubled the recipe and used a few different cheeses, all of which worked out fine. I used 1/2 AP flour and 1/2 white whole wheat, and I don't think the airiness of the popovers suffered for it. Thanks so much--I know I will make these again! Made for ZWT 7, for the Vivacious Violets.
