Cinnamon-Sugar Popovers (in a muffin tin!)


Popovers have always intrigued me; alas, a popover tin is one of the many awesome kitchen gadgets still on my wish-list. Thus, I figured without that integral piece of equipment, I wouldn't be able to successfully bake any- that is until I found this recipe on David Lebovitz's site!
These cinnamon-sugary treats are reminiscent of those massive fried "elephant ears" that you can buy at the fair. They are sooo good- super crispy, buttery, and all-around glorious. The best way (read: only way) to eat them is nice and warm out of the oven, freshly dredged- talk about a decadent breakfast! But, they will still be yummy the next day if kept in a air-tight container ;).
I presume they would be just as good rolled in powdered sugar as opposed to a cinnamon/granulated sugar mixture.


Cinnamon-Sugar Popovers
recipe from here
makes 10


for batter:
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
for cinnamon-sugar coating:
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a standard-sized muffin tin and set aside.
  2. In a blender, combine the butter, eggs, milk, salt, and sugar. Whiz for a few seconds until combined. Add in the flour and whiz for about 10 seconds until fully combined.
  3. Pour into the greased muffins cups, filling each 1/2-2/3 of the way full.
  4. Bake for 35 minutes, or until deep brown in color. Let cool for a couple of minutes until they can safely be handled.
  5. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a medium-sized bowl.
  6. Brush each popover with the melted butter, and then dredge each in the cinnamon-sugar. Gobble up!

  1. so yeah... these look AMAZING!

  2. Oh my gosh, Peggy, they were! I can't believe how much they tasted like they had been fried- so sinful!

  3. What kind of camera/lens do you use for these not-very-English-major-like-food pictures?

  4. welll for these i used a canon point-and-shoot but for most of them my bf uses his super nice canon eos20d

  5. so, they're supposed to deflate when you take them out of the oven, right? cause that's what happened to me. lol

  6. Yes, they most certainly are :)! You can see the dimples on the tops of mine; those are where they deflated.

  7. These look amazing. I'mma make some, like, now. Despite it being close to 4:30 in the morning. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe, I'm going to scroll through your blog for more. :)
