Gluten Free Popovers

Hi all!  Wishing everyone a belated but hearth felt happy Mother’s Day.  I had really good intentions of getting up a Mother’s Day post; but, you know how that goes.  Retirement really agrees with me.  I was worried about how I would fill my days but checking my calendar of late shows that I have one free day this week.  Kinda makes me wonder how I found time to work.

I finished weeding my garden, transplanting from one area to another and admiring my good fortune.  This year the okra and green beans seeded and came up on their own.  I purchased eggplant, tomatoes and bell peppers as well as a few herbs.  I am really looking forward to enjoying the bounty of my efforts.  Now if it would only rain.  Well it seems that I’m getting off track.  Let’s get back to the popovers.

In a few months I will celebrate a milestone…..1 year being gluten free.  I feel so good that it makes me think this is something I should have done awhile back.  However, being gluten free makes me wish for quality baked goods.  After looking at some beautiful popover photos on King Arthur Flour and drooling, I decided that the best gift that my darling husband could give me was a popover pan.  A little research and I found one that on Amazon that suited me and our budget.

On Mother’s Day I was given my gift and having never made popovers before I was a bit apprehensive.  I took the recipe on King Arthur and modified it slightly and the result was amazing.

Gluten Free Popovers
3/4 cup King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour or brown rice flour blend
 2 tablespoons Expandex Modified Tapioca Starch
2 tablespoons almond flour
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk, slightly warm
4 large eggs
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Lightly oil 6 cup popover pan and lightly dust with white rice flour.  Place the prepared pan in a oven while the oven preheats to 400 degrees.
Whisk together the flour, tapioca starch, almond flour, xanthan gum and salt.  Place in a blender.  Add in the remaining ingredients.  Blend on medium-low speed until combined.  Pour mixture into preheated pan filling about 2/3 full. 
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, lower temperature to 350 and continue to bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until brown.  Remove pan from oven and place pan on a wire rack.  Allow popovers to rest for 5 minutes, remove from pan and enjoy.

Needless to say I was in gluten free heaven.  My next venture will be to add some green onion and try my hand at making green onion popovers.  These are on my schedule for Saturday. 


  1. csr, thanks for stopping in. I love King Arthur and recommend their products to anyone who asks. Actually I just got notification that my order has shipped. I will be blogging about my experience with making the gf pie crust that is posted on KAF.
