POPOVERS using cast aluminum pan first try!

Beth M.


Wanted a popover pan, and I couldn't find a cast iron one close to home, so I purchased a Nordic Ware pan yesterday.

Using a recipe from Fanny Farmer Cookbook, I tried it this morning.

I think it worked very well. The recipe was for six popovers, and the instructions said to start with a cold oven! Then set it for 450 degrees, bake for 15 minutes, turn it down to 350 degrees and continue baking 15 to 20 minutes;and they got nicely browned at 15 minutes. Great crispy outside and tender and perfect inside. They're great!

How to Make POPOVERS using cast aluminum pan first try!


  1. Starting with a cold oven, don't preheat, and don't preheat the pan. I used Crisco shortening and greased each cup.
  2. Mix ingredients, but don't overmix, and fill each cup 1/2 full. Place in oven and turn it on to 450 degrees, bake 15 minutes. Then turn it down to 350 degrees and bake 15 minutes more. They need to be checked and might need five more minutes, but mine were done, golden brown on top and brown on the bottom.
