Slowly pour the milk mixture into the well while beating the batter. Continue beating for 2-½ to 3 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Fold in the herbs. Pour into the prepared cups, filling only halfway. Place the cups in the oven on the center rack and immediately lower the heat to 375ºF. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until puffed and browned.
