Easy, single serving, homemade microwaveable popcorn using a brown paper lunch bag. Flavor it with your favorite cake mix!
When it comes to watching movies many people are drawn to buttery popcorn. I am one of the few who can take or leave popcorn, unless it is doused with caramel, butter, or some other sinful coating. Funfetti falls into that category.
This homemade popcorn is easily made with a regular brown paper lunch bag, corn kernels and butter. Cook in your microwave and listen to them pop! Then coat them with a little more butter and some dry cake mix. Use whatever flavor your prefer, I happen to love Funfetti. The sprinkles!

SINGLE SERVING CAKE BATTER POPCORN
2 Tbsp yellow uncooked popcorn
2 Tbsp melted, unsalted butter, divided
1/4 cup dry cake mix (any flavor will work, I used Funfetti) (heat treated*)
1 Tbsp sprinkles, optional
- In a cup or small bowl, mix together the unpopped popcorn and one tablespoon of melted butter. Pour the coated corn into a brown paper lunch sack, and fold the top of the bag over twice to seal in the ingredients.
- Cook in the microwave at full power for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes, or until you hear pauses of about 2 seconds between pops. Carefully open the bag to avoid steam, add remaining melted butter, cake mix and sprinkles, shake, and enjoy!
*Raw eggs are not the only possible source of bacterial contamination, raw flour is also a culprit. Heat treat by heating in microwave to 160 degrees F – about 1 minute stirring every 15 seconds.

Single serve – brilliant idea! Love how pretty it looks!
What a great idea! I like buttery popcorn, but hate the stuff you buy in hermetically sealed packages with all the artificial flavors. You can really do any flavor of popcorn you want this way. Thanks for posting this.
I do not remember this. How was it?
