Apple and Caramel Popovers

This is a favourite in our house, we like to use whatever fruit is in season and adapt it. It's warm and comforting in the colder months and my 3-year-old son as well as my 41-year-old husband adores them - Neleta Winter, winner of the Waitrose Brilliantly British Apple Recipe Challenge.
