  • Yield: 6 servings

This sweet popover could be served impressively in place of muffins. Heating the milk briefly makes the butter easier to incorporate.


3/4cup all-purpose flour
1/4cup whole-wheat flour
1/2teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4cup packed brown sugar
1/2teaspoon salt
1cup 2 percent reduced-fat milk
1tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1teaspoon vanilla extract
2-- eggs, beaten
2tablespoons powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. In a bowl, stir together flours, cinnamon, brown sugar and salt. In a large glass liquid measuring cup or bowl, heat milk until just lukewarm, about 30 second in the microwave. Whisk in butter, then vanilla and eggs. Gradually add flour mixture, stirring with a whisk.
  3. Place popover pans or muffin tins in preheated oven 3 minutes. Remove from oven and spray liberally with cooking spray. Divide batter among cups, filling until half full. Bake 10 minutes; reduce heat to 350 and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from pans and sprinkle with powdered sugar, if using. Serve immediately before the popovers deflate. Makes 6 full-size popovers or 12 muffin-size popovers.
