Orange Scented Popovers


There is Nothing like fresh popovers for breakfast! These come together quickly and take 30 minutes to bake. I love the hint of orange giving they just the perfect sweetness for a breakfast treat. Mine did not “popover” but they still tasted yummy!

3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 TBSP sugar
1 tsp orange zest
1 1/4 c milk
4 TBSP butter, melted
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 425°.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar and orange zest. Whisk in the milk and 3 TBSP of the melted butter.

In another bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder and salt. Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until only small lumps remain.

Brush the cups of a muffin tin or popover pan with the remaining 1 tablespoon of melted butter and heat the muffin tin in the oven for 5 minutes; the butter will turn a nutty brown.

Carefully fill the muffin cups halfway with the popover batter.

Bake the popovers for about 30 minutes, until they are risen and browned. Turn the popovers out onto a serving platter and serve them right away.

Makes 6 large popovers.
