Apple Cheddar Popovers

Servings: 8
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total: 30 minutes
Calories per serving: 111


  • cooking spray
  • 1 tart apple, such as Granny Smith or Fuji, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 tablespoon margarine, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Lightly coat 8 popover cups with cooking spray.  (If you don't have a popover pan, you can use a muffin tin.)
  2. Place 1 tablespoon each of the apple and cheese at the bottom of each popover cup.
  3. In a food processor or blender, combine eggs, flour, and salt. Process until well blended.  (If you don't have a food processor or a blender, you can use a handmixer.)
  4. With the machine running, add milk and margarine through the feed tube (if using a food processor—otherwise, add these a little bit at a time to the blender or bowl). Process until smooth.
  5. Fill the cups two-thirds full with the batter.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes, reduce oven temperature to 350°F, and continue to bake for another 20 minutes until popovers are puffed and golden brown.
  7. Let cool at least 15 minutes, then remove from pan.

I used a regular muffin tin and it worked well; plus I made one change in the cheese, doing 1/2 sharp cheddar and 1/2 grated parmesan. The hardest part of the recipe is coring and peeling the apple! This is a nice change in a bread and a tart apple makes the difference. There was plenty of popover mix and I made 2 extra plain popovers -- also gobbled up by family members. This recipe is a keeper.
