We make Popovers fairly frequently at my house, we are breakfast fiends. Today we decided to try something new, by using Buttermilk and Bananas, they turned out very tender and delicious.
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 cup buttermilk
1 banana (smash it up in a bowl with a fork)
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 pinch sea salt
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1-2 tablespoons powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a non-stick, 6 cavity popover pan (or muffin tin) with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Whisk in the buttermilk, granulated sugar, and salt. Slowly whisk in the flour, stirring until smooth. Stir in the lemon zest.
Divide the batter into the popover pan. Add a bit of the mashed banana into each well. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden. Cut a small slit into each popover for steam to escape. Dust well with powdered sugar and serve warm with butter and h
oney, if desired.
