  • 1/2 stick salted butter
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp  ground cinnamon
  • 1/2  tsp  salt
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2/3 cup popcorn kernels


  • lace the butter in a small bowl or jug and microwave for 20 seconds until melted.
  • Measure the sugar, cinnamon and salt into a large tupperware, (I use a 3.2 litre box).
  • Clip on the lid and give it a good shake to combine everything, set it aside.
  • Pour the oil into your biggest stock pan, make sure you have a lid for it.
  • Turn the heat to medium and add 2 popcorn kernels to the oil.
  • Heat the oil until the two kernels pop.
  • Remove the popcorn and then pour the remaining kernels into the oil.
  • Place on the lid, give the pan a shake to evenly distribute the kernels, then remove the pan from the heat and count to 30.
  • Return the pan to the heat and heat on medium/high with the lid on.
  • Once the popcorn starts to pop, give the pan a good shake and slide it backwards and forwards across the hob.
  • Occasionally pull the lid slightly off to allow the steam to escape. Don't move it off too far or you will find your get a popcorn shower!
  • Keep shaking and sliding until the popping slows to a couple of pops a second, then lift the pan above the heat and shake it again above the heat for 10 seconds.
  • Turn off the heat and pour in the melted butter.
  • Again give the pan a good shake.
  • Tip the popped corn into your tupperware, clip on the lid and shake to coat all the popcorn in the delicious salty sweet goodness.
