Grease your muffin or popover tray with butter or cooking spray. If you have a non-stick pan, I still suggest greasing it! Sometimes popovers just stick, even when it's non-stick!

Mix together the milk and eggs. The key to popovers is fresh eggs. The fresher the eggs, the more the popovers will "pop". If your eggs are fresh, use 3. If the eggs are not so fresh, use more.

Popovers are best when served hot and fresh with butter and some jam. You can also use any other spread or topping you like, such as maple syrup, Nutella and fresh fruit.
