  5. For this recipe I used a muffin pan which I have brushed generously with olive oil. Preheat oven to 230 ° C. Place the empty pan in the over for 5 minutes to heat it.
  6. As soon as the pan is preheated pour the mixture into it by alternating the spaces on the tray up to 3/4 maximum height. Do not exceed this measure or the popovers will pour out of the mold.
  7. Bake 15 minutes at 230° C. After 15 minutes lower the temperature to 180° C and cook for about 10 minutes.

  8. With a sharp knife make small holes in the popovers to remove excess air. Take out from the molds and serve immediately.
