Dreamsicle Popovers

Yes, you read that correctly. Dreamsicle Popovers, and you can totally make them, too.

You may or may not recall my affinity for the popover.  A cross between a souffle and french toast, perhaps?  Silly easy to make, and soooo dreamy.

(See what I did there? Dreamy. I’m a writer, you guys. A WRY-TER.)

Take for example these Dreamsicle Orange Juice Popovers. What makes them Dreamy? Lots of pulpy orange juice, combined with vanilla and cream cheesey goodness. Oh sweet mercy – they are some kind of good. They are also incredibly easy, and very family friendly…even your picky eaters will enjoy this one! Give them a try!

Dreamsicle Popovers

Makes 6 large or 12 mini Popovers (or 4 ramekin sized)


  • 3 Tablespoons Kerrygold Butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons Orange Juice
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • pinch salt

For the Cheesecake Filling

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 egg (just eyeball it)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest


  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, cream, juice, vanilla, and sugar, then whisk in the flour and salt.
  3. For the filling, use a spoon or beater to cream together the ingredients.
  4. Pour the batter into the butter filled cups. Spoon the filling evenly into the center of each cup. Return to oven for 5 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 and continue to bake for another 20-25 minutes. Drizzle with cream cheese icing (or your favorite additions), if desired.. Serve and enjoy!


I made mine in 4 large souffle cups, as seen in the pictures. To make cream cheese icing: Soften about 4 tablespoons butter, 4 ounces of cream cheese, a tablespoon of milk and 3/4 to a cup 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!
