I just looked up the Betty Crocker recipe on the internet since I don't have my Betty Crocker Cookbook with me. It is the exact same recipe that I was using printed from a newspaper. I think I'll give up on the convection oven part and do it in conventional oven mode and see what happens.

I am another one that uses the Betty Crocker recipe. I however use my glass ramekins instead of muffin/popover pans. It's just how we've always done it and it works well!

I have the dbl convection oven and while it's great for some items, others like popovers and certain cakes and cookies it under cooks everything. I haven't figured out why, but this is the second convection system I've owned by 2 different brands (electralux and Samsung) and have had the same issues regardless. SO i just use the traditional bake setting to save myself frustration.

I preheated the pan with the second batch in which half of them rose. I have a Betty Crocker Cookbook, but not with me right now. That might have been the recipe I used to use too. I'll check it out.

Haven't made popovers in years, but always used recipe in Betty Crocker Cookbook. Have you previously made them in cast iron pans? Wonder if they may take too long to heat - or do you preheat the muffin pans? Just a thought!
Let me know what happens in future.

I tried making popovers for the first time in years. I used to have pretty good success with them, but my first batch was a complete flop and my second batch had only about a 50% "pop" rate. I lost my old recipe, so I'm trying various recipes. Anybody have a recipe that works well for them?

I use a cast iron muffin pan, and I'm trying to do it in a convection oven...I may have to give up on using the convection feature.

Anybody having any luck out there with popovers?
