How To Make Popovers

The popover has become one of America’s favorite pastries and it’s perfectly understandable why. Based on England’s Yorkshire pudding, this dessert is like a lighter, fluffier version of a muffin with way more options to get creative. This especially rings true with the savory versions, which can use beef, pork, garlic, herbs and cheese to create a delicious snack or appetizer that pairs perfectly with afternoon tea or your dinner feast. In this online baking class, we’ll be showing you how to make two different versions: a sweet cinnamon sugar popover with a strawberry butter as well as a savory Gruyere popover paired with a honey garlic spread. Now how delicious does that sound?

4 eggs
2 cups milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt

1. Sift the flour and salt and set aside. Warm the milk, whisk the eggs and slowly pour in the warm milk and whisk until well incorporated. Add the flour and whisk until all of the flour is mixed in.

2. Warm the popover pan in the oven for a few minutes. Spray with pan spray or brush with butter. Fill the pans ½ full with batter. Bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes until browned. Remove from the oven and serve warm.

For Cinnamon Sugar Popovers
Brush the popover with butter and roll in cinnamon sugar. Serve with fruit, whipped cream, jam or butter.

For Gruyere Cheese Popovers
Fill the pans about 1/3 of the way and sprinkle with 1 ½ tablespoons of cheese. Serve with flavored butter or spreads.
