How To Make Homemade Popcorn In The Microwave - Bakerette

How To Make Homemade Popcorn In The Microwave

Make your own homemade popcorn in the microwave! Cheap. Cheap. Delish. Delish. Bakerette.comI’m watching the video “Dan In Real Life” for the umpteenth time and am laughing my guts out. Steve Carell cracks me up, particularly in this movie. If you haven’t seen it, I think you’ll love it. It’s a movie everyone can relate to–young or old. It’s one of my all-time favorites.

I can’t watch a movie without stuffing my face full of popcorn! Can you? I mean, no matter how full I am, I can still manage to shove popcorn in my mouth while watching a movie. There’s just something about popcorn smothered in butter and sprinkled with salt that makes me happy. And I can’t just eat one bowl of popcorn either. Who can? I mindlessly eat popcorn while watching TV and the next thing you know it, I’ve only got kernels left in the bowl. But it’s just so dang good!

Guess what? I’m making HOMEMADE popcorn. I’m not air popping it. I’m not popping it on the stove. I’m not using a box filled with ingredients I can’t even pronounce…No, this is HOMEMADE popcorn in the MICROWAVE. It’s so freaking easy and pops up fluffy and beautiful. I’m not sure where I got this recipe, but all you need is standard popping corn, a brown paper lunch sack, butter or oil, and salt.

Did I tell you I love popcorn? I heart popcorn.

Oh, and I forgot to mention…this method is so dang cheap compared to the box!

Prep time: 3 mins
Cook time: 2 mins

Yields: 8 cups

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup standard unpopped popcorn
  • 1 teaspoon vegan butter, melted (or vegetable or canola oil)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 brown paper lunch sack

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the unpopped popcorn and melted butter. Pour into the paper sack.
  2. Add salt. Fold over the top of the paper sack twice to seal. Shake the bag to mix in the salt.
  3. Cook in the microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds to 3 minutes or until you hear pauses of about 2 seconds between pops. Each microwave is different, so you may need to experiment. Mine popped in 1 minute 45 seconds, but others had theirs pop up to 3 minutes. It may be a trial and error thing. But once you’ve got it perfected, there’s no going back!
  4. Carefully open the bag to avoid steam burn. Pour into a serving bowl and eat to your heart’s content.

  1. I haven’t tried homemade popcorn in the microwave yet, that sounds interesting. I will have to give it a shot. Have you tried popcorn salt yet? I just recently learned about it and I know it is crazy, but it really makes a difference.
