I hope you like my attempt at Popovers, which seem more like delicious, chewy muffins. The consistency is perfect – and the flavor is glorious!

I played around using a combination of rice flour and tapioca starch and allowed the baking powder and eggs to do what they do best. I also used ghee in place of butter, which added a rich flavor.

Not having popover baking tins didn’t stop me – I simply made these in muffin tins – and the recipe below makes 12 exactly. Enjoy with butter and jam, or alongside your chili con carne for a more savory experience.
