  • Have all ingredients at room temperature.
  • Combine the milk, flour, butter, and salt in a bowl and beat just until smooth.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating as little as possible to incorporate.
  • The batter should be thin, about the consistency of heavy cream.
  • Pour into generously greased muffin or popover tins, filling the cups no more than three-quarters full.
  • Sprinkle with grated cheese and optional cayenne.
  • Bake in a preheated 450F (220C) oven for 15 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to 350F (180C) (do not open the oven door) and bake an additional 20 minutes.
  • To test for doneness, remove a popover and check to see that the sides are firm and golden brown.
