I can’t help it…I still love popovers. It’s been six months or more since the end of my Popover Project (over 40 different recipes in a year), and yet…I still love them.
Jon and Seven request them nearly every weekend, despite them both knowing that I dislike making the same recipe more than once. And yet, they ask. They beg. They plead. Please make popovers.
I give in sometimes.
Like when I made these. Very Vanilla Popovers.
They are more than easy, and a simple play on the standard popover recipe I use. Very vanilla. Great with fresh berries…we used strawberries – but you could sub in blueberries, or blackberries, or bananas, even.
All good stuff.
If you’ve never made a a popover, this is a great recipe to start with. Just know, you’re family will ask for more.
Very Vanilla Popovers
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 cup Dixie Crystals sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 cup All Purpose Flour
- pinch salt
- 3 Tablespoons Butter
- 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. 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, vanilla, and sugar, then whisk in the flour and salt. 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. Drizzle with your favorite syrup, add berries and whipped cream, if desired.. Serve and enjoy!
If you are reading this on Thursday morning – and I hope you are because that means you read it as soon as it posted (yay, you love me!) – then you may like to know I am in Austin, Texas. This afternoon, after a busy morning of prep, I’m hosting a fun Spa Party for Dixie Crystals at a swanky spa downtown. Sometimes it’s hard having such a great job!
After the spa, I’ll be on a whirlwind party tour – KitchenAid, Stonyfield, Ziplist, Tasty Kitchen – my friends and I are a sucker for the festivities! You have no idea how much fun a group of introverts can have once they leave the internet until you try it yourself!
Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend – and if you’re bored – follow along with our fun on Twitter and Instagram (I’m doughmesstic on both) and be a part of the action vicariously!
