Use the options below to toggle between cups and grams (if relevant)
- 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.
