Pumpkin Pie Mini Pop Overs…and a Giveaway

I’ve been dying to post these for over a week.  You have no idea how hard it’s been!


You probably know I am a big fan of the pop over in this house – in fact, pretty much any weekend where breakfast is made, pop overs are on the menu. Jon always requests them, and little Seven says they are his favorite, so I consider them the breakfast staple.  I’ve done plain, I’ve done buttermilk, I’ve done chocolate chip, I’ve done blueberry.  I’ve introduced friends and family to the joy that is the pop over.

And now that it’s fall, I introduce YOU to the Pumpkin Pie Pop Over.

But not just the pop over…the MINI popover.

Sure, you can use a standard muffin tin, but I have this fun new mini pop over pan from Chicago Metallic that I am loving, and it was perfect for this recipe.  It will make 12, the same amount my standard go-to recipe will make, but for some reason, neither of us could manage to eat more than 3 each.  So we had a lot left!  Luckily, they refrigerate well and are just as good the next day…should you find yourself unable to eat the whole batch.  Serve them up with my Pumpkin Orange Vanilla Bean Butter, or, try a cinnamon sugar butter…both are excellent.  Enjoy!

I’ve never made a popover–or even eaten one! I’d like to win this pan so I could try them.


Susie D. November 1, 2011 at 8:44 pm

I’d like this pan because I have never eaten a popover, much less made any myself. It’s time!


Kelsea November 1, 2011 at 8:58 pm

I would love this pan because I’ve never made popovers before. I’m always looking for new challenges in the kitchen.

I’m always looking for cool pans/gadgets to add to my little kitchen collections. This would be the nicest thing I owned… Nothing says quality like a full set of dollar store baking pans…

Sherry Ocasio November 16, 2012 at 2:04 am

I didn’t have a working oven for over 3 years… and I am finally getting a new one on Saturday. I am SO EXCITED to be able to bake again!!! I already bought new cookware but I do not have a popover pan! I would end up trying this recipe in a cupcake pan. I am probably too late… just thought I would try since I only found your page a little bit ago.
