Blueberries & Popovers

Today is National Blueberry Popover day. I almost bought a popover pan about a month ago. I had it in my hand, but decided not to purchase it because it’s a big clunker of a pan. Long, with metal wires and very deep cups, so stacking it with other pans would be next to impossible.

In addition to being awkwardly shaped, I wondered just how I’d really use it and wondered if it would be a one-hit-wonder one-hit-popover pan. Basically make my one batch of popovers and then never make them again, so I took a pass on this biggie-sized pan that would overwhelm my already stuffed cabinets and non-existent kitchen storage.

My dad used to make popovers when I was growing up and it’s been ages since I’ve had one and blueberry popovers sound fabulous. I just love blueberries.

No popovers here, but I do have frozen blueberries on hand at almost all times.


Never know when I may want Microwave Blueberry Banana Oat Cakes (Vegan, GF)

Or Blueberry Streusel Muffins (Vegan, GF)

They will have to suffice for my blueberry cravings for now.

Do you like popovers?

I haven’t had them in years but their puffiness, their warmth and lightness when they come out of the oven with some butter and jam, the way they make the house smell when they’re baking, good stuff.

Do you like blueberries?

I love them and spring means blueberry season and locally grown blueberries at the farmers market.

  1. love blueberries! i pop some in my oatmeal when i can and always have some in the freezer for convenience. I’ve also experimented pairing them with some savoury herbs which has turned out delightful as well. such a yummy superfood

  2. I LOVE blueberries – these look absolutely delicious :) I have never even heard of popovers.. very interesting!

  3. I don’t think I have actually ever had a popover. They don’t look that tasty to me, but then I wouldn’t know! Now microwave banana cakes are yummy and muffins are the best!

  4. I’ve been making my son popovers for years. You don’t need the popover pan- I use little baking dishes I got at Ikea- they actually work better.
    My dad used to make them when I was little- he’d sometimes put little pieces of bacon in them for variety.

  5. I am TOTALLY not a cook but can’t an unlined muffin pan make a popover? That’s probably sacrilege but this is coming from she who made challah for the first time this week — in the bread machine :-/

  6. I don’t think I have ever had a popover, but I definitely love blueberries! I miss my mom’s blueberry muffins.
