Cinnamon Sugar Popovers-Tuesdays with Dorie

cinnamon-sugar-popovers-tuesdays-with-dorie-1
I was looking forward to today’s Tuesday’s with Dorie recipe. The group would all be making Marion Cunningham’s popover recipe.  The recipe can be found on page 213 of Baking with Julia

Hosting the event this Tuesday are: Paula of Vintage Kitchen Notes and Amy of Bake With Amy. You can find the complete recipe on either of their blogs.

I couldn’t wait to give Marion’s recipe a try. Her yeasted waffle recipe is a family favorite. Marion suggests alternative methods for baking the popovers in case you don’t have a special popover pan. My mom has popover tins and offered for me to use them. Of course, I forgot to get them from her and uses my muffin tins instead. You could also use custard cups if you wanted. I read that you should alternate pouring the batter in the tins so that they have room to pop up. I did use two tins and there was plenty of space for the muffins to rise nicely. I may even try mini popovers the next time. How to make sure your popovers, well, pop? You're supposed to back away from that oven door...don't ever open it until it's time. My mom also recommended I preheat the muffin tins. Great tips and they were a wonderful success.

They are so easy to put together! All you do is whip up milk, eggs, salt, flour and a little bit of melted butter. You pour the thin batter into the tins and wait for the oven to do its magic. I continued to pop over to the check on my popovers with the kids. The kids had a fun time brushing them with melted butter and rolling them in the cinnamon sugar. One comment was, “Wow, mom! Pretty impressive breakfast!”cinnamon-sugar-popovers-tuesdays-with-dorie-2
Another comment was, “Mom, there’s nothing inside of them…they’re empty?” Yes. They are empty which makes you want to eat more. That could be the only problem with this wonderful recipe.

  7. These do look like a perfect breakfast to me! I would love the cinnamon sugar flavor in a popover! It reminds me of a Dutch baby, but smaller of course.
