They’re So Fluffy!

My friend Michelle who writes the blog Fun & Fearless in Beantown was pouting over the lack of poof in her otherwise quite tasty popovers.  She is a fantastic cook cheddar horseradish popoversand her food photos induce Pavlovian drooling at a glance but she was seeking some help with her puzzling popover problem.  I am never one to let a friend feel deflated, so I am sharing my recipe for Cheddar Horseradish Popovers which has always yielded great results for me with no post oven letdown.  It is the perfect brunch treat for a crowd since you can make several batches ahead of time and freeze them.  Michelle and everyone; I hope you enjoy making these and that they rise to your high expectations!

Cheddar Horseradish Popovers
1 cup flour
2 eggs
1 cup whole milk
2/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon grated horseradish (or more to taste)

Heat oven to 425
Butter a 6 cup popover pan or 8 cups of a standard muffin tin
Mix milk, eggs, butter, horseradish
Measure flour into a bowl w pour spout or large measuring cup
Add to wet ingredients to flour and mix just to combine
Stir in cheese gently
Fill cups of the pan 3/4 full
Bake for about 20 minutes until puffed
Turn over down to 350 and bake another 10 minutes
As soon as the popovers come out of the oven, poke them gently with a fork to release steam

  1. Thanks Robin! I’m going to have to give this a try and maybe turning down the heat will help my popover dilemma!
