The one thing about being the cook/baker in your home is you have to be versatile and satisfy everyone. If your heart is in your kitchen, that is how you will feel and it is exactly how I feel.

I don’t make recipes to please just me, I make them to please those I love, my friends and family. I also will make them to thank others or to welcome people into my neighborhood. It gives me that warm, feel good feeling.

Where am I going with this? Well, fall is that time of year when you think of making warm, comforting food. Food that makes you feel good. Pumpkin is one of those foods for me. I love making recipes with pumpkin. Sweet or savory, it’s one of my favorite fall foods.



Pumpkin Spice Popovers with Maple Butter Glaze

This particular recipe is a combination of the sweet and savory. The popovers themselves are mostly savory. Just a tablespoon of brown sugar in them. They are topped with a homemade maple butter glaze that this north country New York girl absolutely loves!

How do I make the best Pumpkin Spice Popover?

  • A popover pan is recommended, but you can use a muffin pan instead.
  • Use good quality ingredients.
  • Be generous with the butter you use to grease your pans. This will prevent sticking.
  • Start baking at a hot temperature for the first 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to a lower temp to continue baking.
  • Don’t open the oven door until it is time to remove them from the oven!

When is the best time to consume your Pumpkin Spice Popovers?

Absolutely, without a doubt, the best time to enjoy your popovers is as soon as they come out of the oven. You can top them with some of the maple butter glaze, or just use regular or whipped butter.

Don’t limit yourself as to what time of day or course you serve these for! You can enjoy these popovers any time of the day! Breakfast, brunch, snack, dessert.

Pumpkin Spice Popovers with Maple Frosting Drizzle
Yield: 12 Popovers

Pumpkin Spice Popovers

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Pumpkin Spice Popovers are a not too sweet treat, topped with a pure maple syrup and butter glaze. A delicious savory/sweet combo for your tastebuds!


For the Popovers:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons Cabot Salted Butter, plus extra butter for the pan
  • 2 large Eggland's Best Eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon Dixie Crystals Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

For the Glaze:

  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon salted whipped butter
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners sugar


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Grease popover pan or muffin tin thoroughly with butter.

Heat milk and butter to lukewarm. When the butter just begins to melt is when it is warm enough.

Whisk together eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, and brown sugar until thoroughly combined. Stir flour and pumpkin pie spice. Batter will be runny.

Pour batter into popover pan or muffin tin filling 2/3 to 3/4 full.

Place popovers in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Do not open the oven door during baking.

After 20 minutes, reduce heat to 350 (without opening oven door) and continue to bake another 10 to 15 minutes, until golden brown.

While popovers are baking, make your maple butter glaze. Combine maple syrup to melted warm butter and stir well to combine. Add confectioners sugar and mix until combined.

Remove popovers from oven and poke the top of each with the tip of a knife or fork tines to release steam.

Serve immediately with maple butter glaze or regular butter.
