Neiman Marcus Popovers with Kitty's Jam

With Father's Day just around the corner, I wanted to try my new popover pan to see just how good these popovers claim to be. The recipe called for Strawberry Butter, but I had some wonderful Christmas Jam that I received as a gift from Kitty at Kitty's Kozy Kitchen. I mixed the Christmas Jam with a little butter and spread it on the popover and it was wonderful. My co-worker Rick gives me eggs so I used six of his pretty eggs for this recipe. Joe and I both agree that these popovers are excellent, and they are easy to make if you have the popover pan. Thumbs up folks!

Popovers Recipe from Neiman Marcus Cookbook

Makes 12 

3 1/2 C. milk
4 C. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 t. salt
1 t. baking powder
6 large eggs, at room temperature

Preheat the oven to 450°F

Place the milk in a bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes, or until warm to the touch. Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a large mixing bowl.

Crack the eggs into the work bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk and beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes, until foamy and pale in color. Turn down the mixer to low and add the warm milk. Gradually add the flour mixture and beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes. Turn the machine off and let the batter rest for 1 hour at room temperature.

Spray a popover tin generously with nonstick spray. Fill the popover cups almost to the top with the batter and place the popover tin on a cookie sheet. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Turn down the oven temperature to 375°F and bake for 30 to 35 minutes longer, until the popovers are a deep golden brown on the outside and airy on the inside.

Turn out the popovers and serve hot with strawberry butter.

Note: The key to making great popovers is having the eggs and milk warm before mixing. It is also important to let the batter sit for an hour before baking it.

Strawberry butter (optional)

3/4 C. Strawberry Preserves
1/2 C. Butter

Place the butter in the work bowl of an electric mixer and beat on high until light and fluffy. Add the preserves and beat until well combined. To serve, spoon or pipe the flavored butter into 2-tablespoon ramekins or onto side plates. Note: Keep refrigerated in an airtight container. This spread will last for two to three days.

I'm joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. Debbie, your popovers look delicious! Kitty's jam, and your recipe made with fresh eggs, yummy. I'm already thinking about breakfast. Thanks for sharing the recipe and I love your new pan………….

  2. Mouth watering over here, as I'm drinking my morning coffee! Those look delish!

  3. Oh Debbie, one of my favorite things to eat at NM is their popovers with the strawberry butter. I even have the cookbook! I also love the orange soufflé, which I'm sure you've tasted, too. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the jam with your gorgeous popovers! I've never bought a popover pan, but now I want one!
    Thanks for the sweet shout-out, my friend! xo

  4. we love popovers so am looking forward to trying your recipe

  5. I purchased a popover pan when I last visited Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park. But I've never felt confident enough (yet) to use it so I thank you for the recipe and the tips!

  6. Debbie, these are some of my favorites! I've not made them myself, but have certainly enjoyed them each time I've eaten at Neiman's tearoom. And seeing Karen's comment below, I'm reminded of the wonderful ones we enjoyed at Jordan Pond House. I think I need to try making some myself. I have the pan. Have a great week!

  7. I forgot to mention. We get fresh eggs from a friend too. The chef trades his homemade bread for fresh eggs. '-)

  8. They turned out so perfect! Lucky girl with the fresh eggs and I know you enjoyed the jam:@)

  9. I always had my students in Food and Nutrition 1 class make popovers - many of them had never had them before! I loved watching their faces when they broke them open! These look delish!

  10. I recently saw these posted around Mother's Day and have yet to try them! I've had them at the Neiman Marcus cafe and they are wonderful with the strawberry butter. Perfect for strawberry season! Yours turned out beautifully, Debbie.

  11. I must make a trip to NM to try these, Deb! I never think of eating there. Our closest one is in Westchester and easy to get to! I tried making popovers once but they were too raw on the inside. You have encouraged me to try again, and I will, because I do love them. Kitty's jam sounds like a good idea for a topping. Linda

    1. Linda, I hope you'll give popovers another try. They reheated nicely for us. Nice and crispy.

  12. Looks so yummy, Debbie.....Christine

  13. Thanks for the recipe Debbie. Those pop-overs look wonderful. I must got a new pan, so I shall be making these. Just letting you know I featured your last post about the traveling tote. xo
