National Blueberry Popover Day

National Blueberry Popover Day is an American holiday dedicated to blueberry scones. In the United States they are commonly referred to as popovers. The combination of simple dough and blueberry filling makes the products taste very pleasant. The holiday is celebrated every year on March 10.


Popover is a simple bread that can be made quickly with egg dough. Special molds are used for baking. They bake small loaves of bread separately – this allows for a more even distribution of heat. When baked, the dough rises, forming a tender and crispy crust on top. The inside of the dough is very soft and often has many cavities.

The blueberry filling filled the cavities inside the bun perfectly. A similar version of the products appeared in the second half of the 1800s. The Americans loved this improvement, and such buns began to be made more and more often.

The main secret to success when making popovers is eggs and milk that are at room temperature. Do not add too much flour, the dough should not be too thick. Because of the large number of air bubbles inside, it rises well when baked. The steam improves the expansion of the dough, and it literally pops over the mold.

Interesting facts

  • All varieties of popovers are variations of a popular British dish called Yorkshire pudding.
  • Blueberry Popover is usually made with yeast. Once the dough is up, it is rolled into sheets, blueberries are placed on them, then wrapped and placed in a baking dish.
  • M.N. Henderson published his cookbook in 1876. It is believed to be where the recipe for blueberry-filled buns first appeared.
