One of my favorite things to make.  Especially now that I have a real popover pan.  For years I made them with a muffin tin, as my mom did for years and years. 
They were good, one of my favorite breads to make, but then I bought a popover pan (they basically are a little skinnier and taller than a muffin tin’s cups).  First time I made them, I couldn’t believe how much better they were!  Definitely worth the very small investment (I found mine on sale at Cost Plus World Market awhile back for around $6) but even if you don’t have a popover pan or want to buy one, use your good old muffin tin and I guarantee you’ll love them!  They are best eaten fresh, straight from the oven while they are still pipin hot and tall.
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
3 eggs
1/4 tsp salt
2 T butter
Whisk milk, flour, eggs, and salt together in a bowl until smooth.
Set aside to rest for 10 minutes.
Put 1 tsp butter in each cavity (or 1/2 tsp if using muffin tin)
Put pan in 450 degree oven for 2 minutes, or until butter is melted.
Divide batter between cavities (about halfway up) and bake for 20 minutes.
Serve hot. Makes 6 popovers or 12 muffins.
