Breakfast / Brunch Popovers

Here’s a variation on a theme. Popovers, you know them, you love then. They are quick and easy… and now from basic roll to something a little different. I start with the basic batter and add a touch of cinnamon to it. So, let’s put on a pot of tea and get busy…

Here’s what you’ll need for the batter:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus 1 teaspoon room temperature for pan
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Here’s what you’ll need for the coating:

  • 4 tablespoons melted butter to brush on the popovers
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Grease a 6-cup popover pan with the 1 teaspoon of butter.

Place all of the ingredients into a blender for 30 seconds. You want to get a good batter going  it hould be similar in consistency to crepe batter. Divide the batter evenly between the cups of the popover pan, each should be about 1/3 to 1/2 full. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 40 minutes. Remove the popovers to a cooling rack and pierce each in the top with a knife to allow steam to escape.

Now, mix one teaspoon of cinnamon in a jar with a quarter cut of sugar and shack well to combine. pour this into a shallow bowl. Brush a popover with the melted butter and then dredge it through the cinnamon sugar mixture, coat well.

These are a nice addition to a big breakfast or brunch, and they also go perfectly with afternoon tea.
