Berry Popover Pancakes

Hi Everyone,

I can’t do small talk today, I am just to excited to share today’s recipe with you.  It’s a new way of eating my beloved pancakes!!  Since I created these on Saturday, I have thought of hundreds of ways of making these bad boys!  My mind is spinning, oh I can’t wait to try them and then share them with you!!  Please don’t think different of me because I’m food crazy!

Isn’t he cute?  he he I love this idea and it would be so perfect for making for Mom on Mother’s Day!  The recipe is soooo easy!!!  All I did is change-up my pancake recipe a bit, took my pancake batter and put it in the blender until smooth.  Pour into a muffin pan and baked in the oven for 11 minutes and pop!  The popovers were born!

Really, couldn’t you see them being served on a tray?  I would be thrilled if my family made these for me!  I am thrilled to make these for me!!  There so sweet, that I didn’t even need to put maple syrup on them.  I took a little bit greek yogurt, vanilla and cinnamon and made the topping for my berries.  If you have vanilla yogurt that would work too, just sprinkle with a little cinnamon.

Since I made extra, the next day I heated one in the microwave for 15 seconds, topped with berries and yogurt.  I didn’t even bother with a fork.  You can eat them just like a muffin, but be careful a blueberry my fall.  Now of course if you chose to top yours with maple syrup, I recommend eating it with a fork!  😉

Now these little guys may not look filling but trust me they are!  The serving size is 3 Pancake Popovers each!  There a healthy little popover, filled with fiber and protein, which will keep you full for hours!

Do you have plans yet for Mother’s Day?  Not me, my family hasn’t said too much to me.  I know little Jenny has a play to go to that afternoon, so she said maybe we could do breakfast.  I wish I could celebrate Mother’s Day with my Mom, but she lives in N. Carolina and being here in California kind makes that impossible, but I will be thinking of her.  If your reading this Mom, I love you and miss you!

Well my lovelies, I am taking off.  I need to figure out what tonight’s dinner is going to be.  Plus I’m debating if I should take a walk to the store.  I’m out of berries!

Have a great week!!  See you tomorrow!

Jen


What's cooking, love?

  1. So fun, pretty and very creative – I can see why you liked these so much! I didn’t know your mom lives in NC – that’s where I live! You might have to come see me sometime when you visit her!

  2. These look fab! Definitely trying 😉

  3. How cute!! I think I would like these pancake popovers more than actual pancakes! they look almost like pancake tarts…which sounds good to me!

  4. What a perfect recipe for a Spring day with fresh berries on top-my kind of dish!

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      Thanks Laura! There perfect for spring!! I have other ideas on what I want to top them with, but that will come later!

  5. Aren’t these just the CUTEST!!!

  6. What a great idea! I love the idea of these little guys. And the fruit on top sounds perfect!

  7. These look amazing! Would be fantastic for mother’s day!! I love the popover pancake idea and the fruit on the top mmm, wish I could have a platter of these right now! YUM!

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      I love this idea too and whats better is once you make the batter you just bake it! I hate standing in front of the griddle and trying to flip pancakes! Plus, even though there small there very heart and not delicate at all!

  8. These are so cute! I could easily down a dozen 🙂

  9. Melissa says:

    Does the calorie count include the toppings?

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      Yes it does!!! So enjoy!!

      • Melissa says:

        I halved the recipe since it is just for me and I managed to fit in six muffins. Six muffins under 200 calories sounds amazing to me! You have wonderful recipes. Thank you

  10. Oh my gosh these are just the cutest! I’ll definitely make these for my mom 🙂 Thank you!

  11. Great idea! I am loving that you are continuing the baked pancakes ideas with these popovers.

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:

      You got me hooked on baked pancakes!!! Thank you for the mention on Twitter and Pintrest! I appreciate it so much!!

  12. These look amazing! They are perfect for Mother’s Day Brunch. I think that is a great idea to put the pancake mix in muffin tins, I never have heard of that before. I would love if you would share this and any other posts at Showcase Your Talent Thursday http://whatscookinglove.blogspot.com/2012/05/showcase-your-talent-thursday-6.html. I hope to see you there!

    • Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says:
