It’s Cherry Popover Day! Here’s Everything You Need to Know About These Delicious Treats

Today is Cherry Popover Day, and we here at the Food Blog are celebrating in style! Cherry popovers are a delicious treat that can be enjoyed any time of year, but they’re especially scrumptious when made with fresh cherries. So whether you’re looking for a fun breakfast idea or a tasty dessert, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about cherry popovers.

What Is a Popover?

A popover is a type of light and airy pastry that’s made by pouring a batter into hot muffin tins or ramekins. The batter usually contains eggs, milk, flour, and melted butter. Once baked, the popovers should be light and hollow in the center. Popovers can be enjoyed plain, or they can be filled with all sorts of delicious fillings like fruit, cream cheese, chocolate, or jam.

Cherry Popover Variations

There are all sorts of ways to make cherry popovers even more delicious. One popular variation is to add a tablespoon of almond extract to the batter for a lovely cherry-almond flavor combination. Another option is to top the popovers with a cherry glaze made with powdered sugar, cherry juice, and almond extract. Or if you’re feeling really fancy, you could stuff the popovers with sweetened whipped cream and fresh cherries before topping them with the glaze. Yum!

How to Choose the Best Cherries for Your Popovers

There are dozens of different types of cherries out there, so how do you know which ones to use for your popovers? If you’re using frozen cherries, look for ones that are unsweetened and have no added sugar. And if you’re using fresh cherries, opt for sweet cherries like Bing or Rainier cherries. While tart cherries can be used in savory dishes, they’re not as well suited for sweet recipes like this one.

We hope you enjoy this delicious treat on Cherry Popover Day!
