It’s time for this month’s Improv Challenge! If you are not familiar with this event, all participants get to make a dish including two ingredients the same for everyone. July’s ingredints are corn and butter. I almost skipped the challenge this month as moving my blog to WordPress is quite time-consuming. I still have the whole recipe index to move! But this popcorn was worth it!
I have to say, it took me a loooong time to finally settle on the popcorn. I had cookies in mind for a while but this heat wave…. oh, this heat wave… I miss baking but I just can’t make myself to turn the oven on! My Hubby is always there to advise me when I feel lost and popcorn was his idea. Frankly speaking, I am not a fan of popcorn. There would be different snacks I would choose before it. But this popcorn is actually pretty good! The nuttiness of brown butter is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of brown sugar. I made a big bowl for us to enjoy while watching the 1st season of Downton Abbey on DVD and it was gone before we knew it!
Air popped popcorn with browned butter and brown sugar make for a nutty sweet treat. Perfect for a movie night!
Brown the butter in a small saucepan. Cool completely in a small bowl.
Add brown sugar and stir until almost dissolved.
Pour over your popcorn.
I used air-popping machine to make my popcorn. I got a huge bowl full of it. It would be quite difficult for me to tell you how many cups that was, because it was disappearing fast! 🙂
