Mini Popover Pancakes with Mixed Berry Sauce

by Andrea Kruse


My family loves to eat breakfast. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is, it is always time for breakfast. This recipe is one of our family favorites. Such a fast and simple recipe, it works well for a brunch or a last minute meal idea.

These little egg pancakes are not only delicious, but so easy to make. The batter climbs the sides of the muffin tins as it bakes leaving the perfect place to spoon fresh fruit or berry sauce and whipped cream.

I usually fill our little pancakes with seasonal fruit, but one quick solution for anytime of year is a bag of mixed frozen berries.

No special equipment is required. Just a greased muffin tin and a blender will yield these tender little cups.

My children love watching them bake in the oven. The batter climbs up and the middles sink. What will you top yours with?
