I'm making basic popovers in a muffin pan rather than a popover pan. Should I expect a slightly shorter cook time than the recipe calls for?

Recipe says 50 minutes in a 375-degree oven, then cutting a few slits in the tops and returning to oven for another 5 to 10 minutes.

When my daughter was small, I made them in mini-muffin pans--1 egg, 1/3 cup water, 1/4 cup flour. 15 minutes. I could do it on a school day.

I've done the King Arthur recipe in a muffin pan a few times now with great results. 20 minutes @ 450 and then 15 or so @ 350

Yes, I would plan for a few minutes less -- check them at 40 minutes to be safe. Because muffin pans are shallower, there will be less batter in them and that's why the popovers will cook faster.
