Breakfast is far from the meal I spend the most time preparing. Mornings are just too chaotic to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, even though I love it, and I tend to aim for quick, healthy and easy.

 

However, whenever there’s a morning with no plans on my schedule, I do like to take the time to experiment with new breakfast treats. Bonus points given for something that tastes like dessert and will impress friends I have over for brunch.

 

Which brings me to these Blackberry Popovers, which are easily the best popovers I’ve ever made.

So,¬†what is a popover? A popover is similar to Yorkshire pudding, a light and puffy pastry, similar to a hollowed-out muffin, made from a batter that is very similar to pancake batter. The name comes from the way they “pop” over the edge of the pan when baking.

 

Do I need a popover pan (link below)? Yes and no. I know you wanted a more straight forward answer.

 

Popover pans are structured to let air circulate around the dough and allow it to popover the top unencumbered. They are also deep and narrow. You can use a muffin tin, but only use every other well so the popovers aren’t next to each other. Keep an eye on them, as cooking times will likely need to be adjusted.

Popovers are notorious for being hard to make but I’ve found when you pay extra attention to the details of the recipe, they’re much easier to make than you think.

 

For this particular popover recipe, preheating the pan in the oven is essential and always make sure to remove popovers from the pan immediately after removing from the oven.

 

If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can use a blender. And if you don’t have a stand mixer or blender, whisk it like crazy by hand!

These Blackberry Popovers are best served warm from the oven, which is why I love making them for brunch. Nothing like impressing your friends with a warm, melt-in-your-mouth pastry in the morning!

Popover pan – Not mandatory, but super helpful. You’ll be making ALL the popover recipes.

Stand Mixer– I lived for a long time without one. My life was changed when I finally bit the bullet and bought one. Just do it and thank yourself later.

Blender– Another small appliance worth the investment. Blenders aren’t just for smoothies, they are great for popover batter, pancake batter and more!

i’ve been drooling over the blackberries at the farmers market, but didn’t know what to make with them. UNTIL NOW THAT IS. THANKS FOR THE INSPIRATION!

These looks delicious. I’ve always been hesitant to make popovers but you make it look so easy. I will have to try this since I do have a stand mixer and that does help keep things easier with more difficult recipes. Love the blackberries and will be trying this soon.
