Sweet Popovers with Peaches

I love traditional pop-overs and my friend and guest Chef Gary Miller added to my love with his bread pudding rendition.   Here is a sweeter version that becomes the perfect vehicle for fresh peaches dusted with powder sugar.   Makes for a great weekend breakfast!

Sweet Popovers with Fresh Peaches

Ingredients:
  • 3 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 T brown sugar
  • 1 t orange zest
  • 1 1/4 C whole milk
  • 4 T butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 C all purpose flour
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t salt
Directions:   Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl whisk the eggs with the sugar and orange zest. Add the milk and 3 T of melted butter. In a smaller bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.   Mix the dry ingredients with the wet until only small lumps remain.

Brush the inside of a 12 cup muffin or popover tin with the remaining melted butter and place into the preheated oven for about 5 minutes until the butter browns slightly but does not burn. Carefully ladle the batter into each cup, filling about 1/2 full. Bake the popovers for 30 minutes or until they have risen and browned. I pull mine open and top with fresh sliced peaches and dust with powder sugar. Strawberries, raspberries or any other kind of fruit would work just as well.
