Popovers with Cinnamon Butter

I had never even heard of Popovers before until my uncle served this for me.  He said I had to try it out, and they were delicious.  This is a perfect side dish and a great dinner hit since most people don’t make these anymore.

For those who do not know what a Popover is, it is a light roll made from an egg batter similar to that used in making Yorkshire pudding. The name “popover” comes from the fact that the batter swells or “pops” over the top of the muffin tin while baking.

When was the last time you had Popovers?


Yields: 12

4 cups milk, warmed
8 eggs
4 cups flour
1 ½ heaping tsp salt
2 ¼ cups grated Gruyere cheese
Popover pan

Make sure all your ingredients are lukewarm or warmed.  Place the popover pan in the oven. Heat the over and pan to 350 degrees. Gently warm the milk over low heat and set aside. Whisk the eggs until frothy and slowly whisk in the milk (so as not cook the eggs). Set the mixture aside. Sift the flour with the salt.  Slowly add this dry mixture and gently combine until mostly smooth.  Once combined, remove the popover pan from the oven and spray with non-stick vegetable spray. While the bather is still slightly warm or room temperature (definitely not cool), fill each popover cup ¾ full. Top each popover with approximately 2 ½ tbsp of the grated Gruyere. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, rotating pan half a turn after 15 minutes of baking. Remove from the oven; remove from the pan and server immediately and server with Cinnamon Butter.

Cinnamon Butter

    I’ve been making popovers since I was newly married. My mother had a great recipe. And now, I get them when I go to Neiman Marcus for lunch…they are fabulous….and come free with your lunch.
    I’ve never used anything but a fruit butter on them so will love to try you cinnamon butter. (Which BTW, my father used to love on his rice pudding!)

      Barbara, I am so glad to hear that someone knows about these things. I had no idea what these were before my uncle told me about them. You know cinnamon butter probably goes well on anything. Rice pudding, mmmmm i think i am graving rice pudding now. We eat rice pudding in Sweden for Christmas, i think i will have to make a post about it soon.

    I have always wanted to make popovers but to be honest they kind of intimidate me. But you make them look so good and yummy, especially with that butter that I now think that I am going to have to try.

    Stopped by from SITS to say hi and welcome.

      Jen, yes please do try them and let me know how they come out. I am sure you can put anything on them but the cinnamon butter is soooo good.

    Everything looks awesome! I can’t wait to try to make something. Ahhh where to start…you need a “For Beginners” tab for people like me! =)

      The Activiy Mom, you are hilarious. But that is a good idea. I would start with a Quiche, you can make them when you have time the day before, and have them for breakfast, lunch or dinner :). If you want something sweet and very easy try the Swedish brownie, they take about 10 minutes to whip up! Let me know how it goes.
