National Blueberry Popover Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Blueberry Popover Day - Today is National Blueberry Popover Day!

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.

The name "popover" comes from the fact that the batter swells or "pops" over the top of the muffin tin while baking.

The popover is an American version of Yorkshire pudding and similar batter puddings made in England since the 17th century. The oldest known reference to popovers is in a letter of E. E. Stuart's in 1850. The first cookbook to print a recipe for popovers was M. N. Henderson, Practical Cooking, 1876. The first book other than a cookbook to mention popovers was Jesuit's Ring by A. A. Hayes published in 1892.
