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!
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
- 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, cream, juice, vanilla, and sugar, then whisk in the flour and salt.
- For the filling, use a spoon or beater to cream together the ingredients.
- 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!
