National Blueberry Popover Day Is Today!
Today is the day we have all been waiting for… National Blueberry Popover Day! That's right, March 10 is the day to celebrate Blueberry Popovers in the US. Since many people don't know what popovers are, let's start with the obvious question. What is a popover? The Merriam Webster dictionary defines a popover as "a hollow quick bread shaped like a muffin and made from a thin batter of eggs, milk, and flour". It's supposed to rise forming a hollow shell when baked, and most recipes describe the shell as 'light and airy'. This space can be filled with creams, custards, or fruits to make a warm, delicious dessert.
On this National Blueberry Popover Day, you'll find a mouthwatering recipe for Blueberry Popovers that you'll one day probably pass on to your grandchildren. Yes, it is that good. Enjoy!
3 whole eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 Tablespoons sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cups blueberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Divide the butter into the 6 cups of your popover pan. (If using a muffin tin, 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.
Pour the batter into the butter-filled cups, then evenly add a few blueberries to each cup.
Return to the oven for 5 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and continue to bake for another 25 minutes.
Popovers will be tall and gorgeous just out of the oven, but they shrink very quickly.
It doesn't affect the taste.
Serve with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and maple syrup.
