Pop on over to the oven today and bake up today’s tasty, puffy treat. September 1 is National Cherry Popover Day!
On a personal note, September is going to be an exciting and busy month for us. Tara and I are getting married on the 14th, and two weeks later, I’ve got a work commitment involving a four-day symposium that will keep me away from home for a significant portion of time. But we’ve come this far, and I’m sure we’ll persevere and cross another successful month off our list in 30 days, despite the other challenges headed our way.
We were excited for this holiday, because earlier in the year we celebrated National Blueberry Popover Day, and were pleased with the results. Not only did I bake them from scratch (a feat in itself, as I rarely baked anything at the start of this challenge), but they turned out fluffy, moist, and delicious. Popovers are the American equivalent of Yorkshire pudding. I talked about that (and a lot more) in our earlier post, so click on the link if you want to read up on the history of the popover.
Once again, we decided to make these from scratch. We used the same recipe as before, but substituted (canned) cherries for the blueberries. They turned out just as good!
