Congrats and what a winner recipe! As for the flour, on many measuring cups there is a marking for ounces as well as cups. One cup is 8 ounces. The batter is more like a thin pancake batter. I love popovers and any popover recipe can be followed.
I love the use of blue cheese, yum!
There used to be a retaurant in California called the Proud Popover. Does anyone remember it? Popovers can be filled with stews or pot pie filling and even fruit mixtures. They are so delicious and versatile.

Actually, one cup of flour should (usually) weigh 5 oz. One cup of liquid should weigh 8 oz.!

I added a strong blue cheese in place of the parmesan for a bit of a kick. It was savory!

This is probably really basic and obvious, but the flour is by weight, not volume?

I too had this question, so hoping for an answer. Since I don't have a scale, do I use 2 1/2 cups sifted flour?

These look and sound amazing. I am mourning the vanishing of my cast iron popover pan (the kind with 11 wholes), and the now gluten free spouse. I'll adapt and sneak!

These were so good -- I had to keep myself from eating the whole pan when we tested them.
