Last week, I shared my simple popover recipe. It’s a wonderful alternative to the traditional dinner roll or bread; a crisp hollow pastry with an eggy interior.

I love dipping popovers in my soup or slathering them with butter, but there’s something else that’s just as delicious – coating them, not just with butter, but making this recipe a sweet popover by dipping them in my favorite cinnamon and sugar mixture as well.

Now, don’t let the above picture deceive you. I admit, it’s my popover recipe without the sugar coating, but just envision it slathered with sweet goodness, as well as adding a bit to the dough mixture. I showed you above how these work with either a popover pan or muffin tin. Obviously, the popover pan is desirable to achieve the height, but the taste is just the same.
