Basic recipe for popovers except the oven is cold when the baking starts, you don't open the oven and you don't beat the mix--gently stir. High rising with soft insides and crisp outside. Lemon & sugar are added to batter. Serve with lemon sugar butter.

- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup melted margarine or 1⁄2 cup butter

I'm not going to rate this recipe as I changed some ingredients, which may have affected results--I used vegetable oil instead of margarine and almond milk instead of regular milk. Not sure this is a true popover recipe, but there were plenty of yummy "holes" inside as promised, and the springy texture was a nice change from regular muffins.
These were divine! We love popovers...and the flavor of these were really something special. Used splenda option and loved every bite!
