Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, and melted butter until well combined.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Grease a popover pan or muffin tin with cooking spray or butter. Place the pan in the preheated oven for 5 minutes to heat it up.
  6. Carefully remove the hot pan from the oven and immediately divide the batter evenly among the wells, filling each about 3/4 full.
  7. Place the pan back into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Then, reduce the oven temperature to 350°F (175°C) and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the popovers are golden brown and puffed up.
  8. Once done, remove the popovers from the oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool slightly.
  9. Serve the pumpkin popovers warm with butter, maple syrup, or your favorite fruit preserves.
