Mini Cinnamon Sugar Popovers

Easter is coming up. Michael and I will be spending it here in NY, with just each other (wish we could be with our family), but I want to make it feel like Easter, nevertheless! That's why I'm making a big dinner. And you know what else I'm making? These mini cinnamon popovers for breakfast.
 For some reason they just scream EASTER to me. 
Plus they're super duper tasty.
It's fun to think about what Easter will be like when we have little ones--I'll make all sorts of cute bunny and chick, etc. treats for them, we'll hide eggs for them to find, etc.! I sort of can't wait to get to that part :)
Right now I have to attempt to create these holidays for us, which can be hard when it's just us two. 
Anyway, these popovers are super yummy and comforting! Cinnamon sugar always makes me think of the toast my mom would make me when I didn't feel good (I don't know why that was the thing to eat, but it helped *shrug*), so these popovers definitely have the comfort food factor for me. Plus, they're so tiny you can just pop a bunch of them into your mouth! It's fun! Michael and I both really loved these.

 I just wish I had an actual mini muffin tin. The tins I have create something more akin to mini cinnamon sugar....discs....than popovers. Yummy discs, though!


Mini Cinnamon Sugar Popovers

Adapted slightly from How Sweet It Is


Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 cup milk-at room temp. (I used Skim Plus and it worked fine)
  • 2 eggs-room temp.
  • 5 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar + 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon-mixed. For pan and on top.
Preparation:
  • Position oven rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat to 450 degrees. Brush a mini muffin tin with melted butter and sprinkle some cinnamon&sugar mixture in the cups and place the tin in the oven, while it preheats.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients until there are no lumps.
  • In a measuring cup mix milk, eggs, and 2 tbsp. melted butter.
  • Stir the wet into the dry ingredients until just combined (some lumps will remain).
  • Remove hot tin and pour batter in, within 1/4 in. of the rim.
  • Sprinkle cinnamon&sugar mixture of top of each batter filled cup.
  • Bake 10 minutes (DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN). Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 8-10 more minutes, until golden brown and puffed.
  • Remove from oven and let cool 3-5 minutes.
  • Brush tops of popovers with remaining butter and cover with more of the cinnamon&sugar mixture.
  • Enjoy fresh and hot! (Also taste pretty decent reheated leftover.)
See, mine are like little discs. Kind of cute actually. :)
You know what else is cool? These were the first photos of food I took with my new camera!

  1. I love popovers - although I've never had them with cinnamon sugar and I will have to try that. I'm so glad you and Michael will have a chance to spend time together for the holiday - I always miss family and friends the most around the holidays...

    1. I know-it's really hard for us to be away from everyone else, but at least we have each other :)

  3. I am glad that you do not need any special pans to make these! They do look tasty, any pastry or bread with cinnamon always is a welcome sight! Delicious recipe.
    Also, you are absolutely right, now is the time to start all those holiday traditions so they will be in place when kids do come along! Having traditions that are just for you and Micheal and having family friendly traditions make for the best holidays!
