Air Fryer Raspberry Popover: Disabled Kitchen Recipe

A popover is an American version of a Yorkshire pudding. Typically, versions are prepared with cheese in the centre. This raspberry popover recipe for an oven-style air fryer is a nice sweet/savory alternative. While they take no time to prepare and you must leave them alone while cooking so that they don’t defalte, there are a few things you must do to ensure they cook properly.

All of the ingredients must be at room temperature. If you begin with cold ingredients, they won’t enflate like a balloon. You will need to plan a little bit in advance if you want to make these. They aren’t a dish that is good to make on a whim or if you have craving and want them within an hour.

Be sure to whip the batter really well if you are not using a blender or electric wisk. The air introduced during the whipping process is also important to how a popover will rise.

It is super important that you do not add the sugar too early to the raspberries. If they raspberries become masticated, you can’t use them. The masticiation interferes with the rising process.

Unlike an regular oven where you can reset the bake cycle without opening the door, you can’t do that with most air fryers. Part of the successful poofing is baking with two different temperatues without any cooling of the environment or vibrations that can cause the “balloon” to pop. So be extra careful when opening the door and closing it again. It only needs to be open a crack before the air fryer will allow you to set a new bake cycle. And close the door as gently as you would when leaving the room of a sleeping baby that hasn’t slept in a week.
