Popover Rewind…Apple Pie Popovers

Back before I started the Popover Project, I experimented a few times with some flavors. One of my absolute favorites is the Apple Pie Popover, and since it’s that time of year, I thought I’d introduce the newcomers to Doughmesstic to this flavorful and fun breakfast.

Expect chewy, tart bites of apple goodness. Expect the tang of the sweetened cream cheese glaze. Expect to eat the entire batch.

By yourself.

I’ll never tell.

Apple Pie Popovers

Yield: 12


  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 5 Tbsps sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup Quaker Oats
  • 1 small apple, chopped


  1. Divide the 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. Just divide the butter up evenly) Place the pan in the oven for 3-5 minutes while you are making the batter.
  2. In medium bowl, beat the eggs with the milk, vanilla, spices and sugar, then whisk in the flour and oats. Pour the batter into the butter filled cups, then evenly add a few apple pieces to each cup. Return to oven for 5 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 and continue to bake for another 20 minutes. Drizzle with Cream Cheese Glaze. Serve and enjoy!


Want to make that Cream Cheese Drizzle? Of course you do. These popovers ache for it. It’s a really simple recipe – just soften about 4 tablespoons butter, 4 ounces of cream cheese, a tablespoon of milk and 3/4 to acup of powdered sugar. You can use an electric mixer if you want, or a strong whisk, or an egg beater works great. Just get it nice and creamy, then drizzle it on top of each plate of popovers. Enjoy!
