If I had to give cupcakes a gender, they would definitely be female.  They dress up in cute liners, add frosting to give themselves some color, and accessorize with sprinkles.  While popovers are also baked in pans with cups, popovers are more like guys – they are who they are, take ’em or leave ’em.

To celebrate some of the most important men in your life, why not make popovers for Pop this Father’s Day?  Of course, I wouldn’t tell you to make just any popovers.  I created a banana nut popover recipe for Paula Deen that the dad in your life is “pops”itively going to love.  The popovers taste like banana bread crossed with croissants!

Father’s Day Banana Nut Popovers for Pop

Servings 6 popovers


  • ¾ cup flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons mashed ripe bananas
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter cold


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix all ingredients except the cold butter until fully combined.
  3. Cut the cold butter into six equal parts and drop them in the bottom of each popover cup in a six cup popover pan.
  4. Heat the popover pan in the oven for about three minutes, or until the butter bubbles.
  5. Remove the pan from oven and, using a pastry brush, carefully spread some of the butter up the sides of each cup. Note: There will still be a pool of butter at the bottom of each cup.
  6. Ladle the batter into each cup (the cups should be filled about halfway full).
  7. Bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Reduce heat to 325 and bake for another 15 minutes. Important: Do NOT open the oven at any point during the baking. This will let the steam out and hurt your end result.
  9. Immediately remove hot popovers from the tins.
  10. Allow them to cool for a few minutes and eat while still hot. If not eating immediately, wait for the popovers to cool completely, then store in an airtight container.

  1. Never heard of popovers but they look great all the same. Yes, I’m glad I’m not the only one that thinks cupcakes are girly!

    What type of pan is that?

      Lisa – Popovers are wonderful and easy to make. You should give them a try! You make them in a popover pan. I linked to one in this post.

  2. They sure look manly ;-)
    Honestly I never heard of them either. A little rough on the edges, but I will certainly try them.
    Thanks for the link with recipe.
