Prep Time3 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time8 mins


  • cup of popping corn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons of rice bran oil
  • 50 g of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon


  • Prepare the popcorn by adding the oil to a large saucepan (that also has a lid!) and heat over a high heat for 3 minutes until the oil is hot.
  • Add the corn kernels and quickly cover with a lid. Keep shaking the saucepan so that the corn kernels keep moving and have all popped. Turn the heat off when the popping begins to slow down and transfer the popcorn to a large bowl.
  • Place the butter into a small saucepan over a medium heat and cook for 2 minutes until it’s melted. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir for 2 - 3 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Pour the cinnamon and butter mixture over the popcorn and stir through to coat - then serve.


To test if the oil is hot enough, drop a corn kernel into the oil and if it ‘pops’ the oil is ready.
