NATIONAL BLUEBERRY POPOVER DAY

Enjoy your day on March 10th with a blueberry popover as it is National Blueberry Popover Day.   A popover is described as; puffy pastries, roughly the size of muffins, that have moist interiors — whether hollow or stuffed, with crispier, lightly browned exteriors.  Can’t you already taste a blueberry filled, light and fluffy, fresh out of the oven, popover?

“A popover is a light, hollow roll made from an egg batter similar to that of Yorkshire pudding, typically baked in muffin tins.Popovers may be served either as a sweet, topped with fruit and whipped cream for breakfast or with afternoon tea, or with meats at lunch and dinner.”  (Wikipedia) The name “popover” comes from the fact that the batter swells or “pops” over the top of the muffin tin while baking.** 1850 – The oldest known reference to popovers in a letter of E.E. Stuart.**  1876 – The first cookbook with a popover recipe was Practical Cooking by M.N. Henderson.
