Today's Reason to Celebrate

September 1, 2015 is
National Cherry Popover Day

It’s National Cherry Popover Day! A popover is a doughy type of muffin made from egg batter. As it bakes, the dough rises to "pop over" the edge of the muffin tin and form a hollow shell. You can then fill the center with butter and jam, gravy, or a delicious cherry sauce.

Cherry popovers have several health benefits. Cherries are a good source of melatonin, which can stimulate your brain and help you sleep better at night. Now that’s a reason to celebrate!

Today, make or buy a batch of popovers and smother them with a homemade cherry sauce to celebrate National Cherry Popover Day!
