Very Vanilla Popovers

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.

Every weekend.

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


  1. 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.
  2. 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!
