Keyword cinnamon sugar popovers, cinnamon sugar popovers recipe


  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup plus one tablespoon sugar divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter unsalted
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees with a popover pan on rack in the lowest position. Have your flour and salt already measured out and ready to go.
  2. Combine eggs, milk and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk together until very frothy. (This should only take about a minute.) Add flour, salt and one tablespoon sugar to the egg mixture.
  3. Whisk until batter is the consistency of heavy cream. You will see lots of tiny air bubbles, those are what will cause the popovers to rise. :)
  4. Remover your popover pan from the oven and coat with cooking spray. (If using a standard muffin tin, only coat (and fill) the outer cups; they get better circulation in the oven. Also, reduce baking times by 5 minutes. )
  5. Fill the popover cups about 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 20 minutes then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake until golden brown about 20 minutes more.
  6. Combine 1/4 cup sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl. Brush the top of each baked popover with melted butter and then dip them in the cinnamon sugar.
