Popovers are light, tasty rolls descended from England’s Yorkshire pudding. These hollow treats get their name from their shape: The batter “pops over” the top of the muffin tin while they’re baking. Popovers are a great snack for any time of the day—and the batch we baked sure were popular here at the Post!
