For its bread service, Mariposa Restaurant at Neiman Marcus in Honolulu serves popovers with a delicious lilikoi butter. I found a recipe but when I tried to make them it wasn't the same. Instead of being airy, they were dense. After hearing about my baking disaster a friend recommended the popover recipe from Cooking Light. She said it never failed her and it hasn't failed me either.
To get the height you will want to use a popover pan. But you could also make slightly smaller popovers in a muffin tin.
I serve the popovers with my homemade apricot jam. It's a great start to breakfast or brunch or a morning tea break.
