As I was scanning the Internet this morning, being seduced by mouth-watering food photos, I discovered today is National Cherry Popover Day. OK, while cherry popovers aren’t exactly the most exotic pastries, I did have to ask the Google, “What the heck is a cherry popover?”
Popovers are essentially made from eggs and milk with a splash of flour. They are a light, hollow roll made from an egg batter similar to that used in making Yorkshire pudding. They can be prepared as a sweet or savory side dish. While popovers originated in American recipes as meat and herb-flavored pastries, today most diners can find them being served as a breakfast item or alongside hearty meat and potato courses.
Preparing the dish at home is as basic as the ingredients needed. But don’t take my word for it, give it a try yourself. Find.myrecipes.com gives a super simple recipe for cherry popovers that’s totally delicious and easy to make. Happy National Cherry Popover Day!
