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!
Brown Butter Brown Sugar Popcorn
- 1/4 c popcorn popped

- 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! 🙂
