Brown Butter Caramel Apple Popovers

Contributing Writer: Heather Kinnaird at French Press

Back to school reminds me of fall – even if it is 100 degrees.

Fall reminds me of apples, and apples are best eaten with caramel.

For more fabulous Fall recipes, breakfast on the go recipes, crafts, home decor…. stop by here!

In an effort to get off on the right foot for back to school, I have been trying to get  more creative with breakfast and lunch.  At times, even when you enjoy being in the kitchen, you can get stuck in a rut.

I have been experimenting a lot this summer with popovers. They are fun to eat, and much like a pancake, you can dress them up in so many ways.

I don’t have a popover pan, but my muffin tin works great.

My plan was to make an apple pie popover, but again, I love caramel apples. Caramel syrup was not quite what I was looking for – and it would be sticky.

Caramel coffee creamer was just the thing I needed.

I replaced the milk and sugar with caramel creamer…


with just the right amount of sweet caramel flavor.

Next time I think I’ll wait until a day when it’s a bit cooler:)

Happy Back to School!

Brown Butter Caramel Apple Popovers:

heat the oven to 350

fill each muffin cup with 1/3 tbsp of butter

place it in the oven while you mix the batter

(allow the butter to brown but remove before it burns – about 8 minutes)

whisk together 1 cup of caramel coffee reamer with 3 eggs

add in 1 cup of flour

1 small diced apple

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp apple pie spice ( or cinnamon/nutmeg)

spoon evenly into your pan

bake @350 for 20 minutes (I get them ready and in the oven and then wake the kids)

By the time we are all dressed and ready, they are on the table.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let
    you know. The design and style look great though!

    Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos
