I can’t believe I’ve waited THIS long to make these popovers.
Banana. Split. Popovers.
Throughout the years, I have been a banana split fanatic. When others were buying up Blizzards and Peanut Buster Parfaits, I stuck to the tried and true Banana Split. What is it about the convergence of bananas, sweet strawberries, chocolate, pineapple, and whipped cream? What makes it so magical?
Magicians secret, I guess.
Whatever the reason, it’s my favorite, and the flavor of these popovers is ever-so dessert worthy. Eat it for breakfast, though, if you want to…it’s still a popover, and you’re a grown up, and nobody is the boss of you but YOU.
Banana Split Popovers.
Imagine the good day at the office you’d have after a plate full of this deliciousness.
Banana Split Popovers
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon Dole Pineapple Juice
- 1 cup All Purpose Flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- pinch salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 ounce dark chocolate grated (I used ScharffenBerger)
- 3 Tablespoons Butter
- 1 Dole Banana sliced
- Strawberries capped and sliced
Preheat oven to 375F. Divide the 3 tablespoons butter into the cups of your Pop Over Pan. (If you don’t own one, you can use a muffin tin, but you will need to use all 12 cups, or opt to use souffle cups. Just divide the butter up evenly) Place the pan in the oven for 3-5 minutes while you are making the batter.
In medium bowl, beat the eggs with the milk,cream, vanilla, pineapple juice, and sugar, then whisk in the flour and grated chocolate. Pour the batter into the butter filled cups. Return to oven for 5 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 and continue to bake for another 20-25 minutes. Add the bananas and strawberries, then drizzle with chocolate syrup. Add whipped cream, if desired.. Serve and enjoy!
You’ll notice in the recipe that I grated the chocolate. Look how fine it is. It’s perfect, tiny little flecks of ScharffenBerger dark chocolate. To get the chocolate like this, I used the new Edgeware Better Zester. It’s not just for lemons. Not just for oranges. I used it for chocolate, and I love it. Popovers are delicate little creatures, and large chunks of chocolate tend to want to sink to the bottom as they bake. Not so with the grated chocolate – it actually ends up kind of floating to the top. Specks of chocolate stud the entire popover, adding flavor to every bite.
Imagine what you could do with this newfound knowledge. You’ll be zesting chocolate into cupcakes, muffins, brownies, salad dressing, well, pretty much anything that sits still long enough. Shave a little onto your morning coffee…that’ll make the day better, won’t it?
You know what? I want to give you one of these fantastic little zesters. You deserve it. You know what else? I want you to have a knife sharpener, too. This one, The Angle Adjust Adjustable Knife Sharpener, also from Edgeware, is pretty awesome. It’s angled, so that you can sharpen all different types of knives, be it serrated, regular, tall, short, fat, skinny – it will sharpen it. The different slots are varied in how they sharpen your knife, from everyday sharpening to downright factory restored sharpening. Nothing worse than a dull knife, and around here, we use our knives a LOT. So, they get dull. This little gadget comes in mighty handy!
