Movie nights in fall and winter are the best, sitting near the fireplace while it is dark outside, wearing fluffy socks and warm pyjamas, wrapped up under a warm blanket, but what is a movie night without POPCORN! This popcorn recipe will make you movie nights even more of a fall activity.
Lately I have been obsessed with popcorn, I love eating it plain or on top of my Nana Nice Cream (Yes I know, everything is good with Nana Nice Cream!) As much as I love the regular popcorn without any spices or toppings, sometimes adding a bit of flavour makes eating popcorn a bit more exciting.
- 1 -1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cups unpopped popcorn
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 apple
Start by making your popcorn. In a pan add the 1/4 cup of popcorn. I like to cook without oil, so I just keep shaking the pan so the popcorn won’t burn. When all the corn is popped take the pan of the fire and let it cool down.
Now take 2 cups of popped popcorn and put it in a mixing bowl. Add 1 – 1 1/2 tbsp of unsweetened applesauce and with your hands mix in the applesauce. Now cut up 1/4 apple into very small cubes and mix it in with the popcorn and a bit of cinnamon (about 1/4 teaspoon).
Because of the applesauce the popcorn loses it’s crunchy texture a bit, if you like it like this you can just leave it. If you want it to be a little more crunchy, put the popcorn BEFORE adding in the apple cubes in a 175 °C oven for about 5-8 minutes. You can also leave out the applesauce if you prefer that.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!
