Popovers, my friends. Popovers are a thing of beauty. You can make them so many different ways. Sweet. Savory. For breakfast. For brunch. Alongside your dinner. And the best part is they are so simple to make. It's amazing how a few ingredients can turn into something so delicious. Not only are they delicious, but they are gorgeous, too. Don't you think your family and friends would be impressed if these beauties were on the table?

I couldn't let #BrunchWeek pass me by without including these decadent treats. They are crispy on the outside and light and eggy in the inside. Is eggy a word? I think so. At least I'm going with it for now. You get what I mean.

These popovers get their fabulous orange flavor from a little Nielsen-Massey Pure Orange Extract. A little is all you need for a burst of orange flavor.

Orange Popovers
Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door
Makes 6 popovers

Ingredients:
3 eggs, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups milk, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Powdered sugar, for dusting

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and place a non-stick popover pan on the bottom rack. (If you don't have a popover pan you can use a standard muffin tin) 

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar together until well combined. Add the milk and orange extract and whisk until frothy.  Add the flour and salt and whisk well. Some small lumps may remain, which is perfectly fine. 

Carefully remove the popover pan from the oven and spray the wells with non-stick cooking spray.   

Fill the popover wells about 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes, until the popovers are puffed up and golden brown.

Turn the popovers onto a cooling rack immediately after you pull them out of the oven. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve immediately. 

Bon Appetit!
