Cinnamon Sugar Popovers

I am a fan of baking pans. Not just your basic cake pans, but pans to help expand your baking adventures. Two pans I highly recommend are a doughnut pan and a popover pan. If you’ve followed me long enough you know I use both pans on a regular basis and the recipes I use them for are not hard at all. If you haven’t already invested in these pans, I suggest you run out to get them sooner than later! They won’t break your bank either and you will get a lot of use out of them. You can find these pans at Target with a quick search.

Okay, now back to these popovers. I made cinnamon sugar popovers a few years back when I didn’t have a popover pan. I made them in a muffin tin and they did come out well. However, I’m a fan of pretty things and I must say I love the way the popovers turn out when you use the proper pan.  I used a basic popover recipe and then, wait for it, I dipped these babies in butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar. I know, I’m out of control!  These are perfect for brunch any weekend so get your pan ready and let’s bake popovers!

Cinnamon Sugar Popovers adapted from the Kitchn



1 cup milk ( whole or 2%)2 eggs

3 tablespoons melted butter

1 cup all purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Cinnamon Sugar Topping (prepare once the popovers are out of the oven)

1/2 cup sugar

1-2 tablespoons cinnamon

3-4 tablespoons melted butter


Cinnamon Sugar Directions:

Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl. In another bowl add the cinnamon and the sugar and mix until combined.



In a medium sized bowl add the milk, eggs, cinnamon and one tablespoon of the melted butter. Whisk the ingredients together until blended. Once the milk mixture has been blended, add the flour and salt and blend until the liquid is bubbly.


While the batter is resting, place your popover pan or muffin pan in the oven while it’s pre-heating at 450 degrees. Once the oven has finished pre-heating, remove your pan and evenly distribute the remaining melted butter into the cups. Give the batter another whisk then add the batter to each cup, filling halfway.


Place your pan in the oven and cook for 15 minutes. While the popovers are cooking be sure not to open the oven during this time as the popovers will deflate.


After the first 15 minutes of baking have completed, turn the oven temperature down to 350 degrees and cook for another 15 minutes. During this second 15 minutes of baking, you can open the oven door to check on the popovers. The popovers are ready when they are golden brown.


Once the popovers have finished baking, turn them out onto a cooking rack. To allow the steam to escape the popovers, pierce the bottom of each popover. Cool for a few minutes then dip each popover in butter then the cinnamon sugar. Repeat until each popover is covered in cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
