Making Microwave Popcorn with in a Bowl

  • Pour in 1/2 cup kernels into the bowl and cover the bowl with a plate.
  • Place in microwave and heat 2-5 minutes (timing depends on your wattage of microwave).
  • The popcorn will be done when popping slows to more than a second between pops.
  • Of course, you can use a special bowl designed for popcorn in the microwave, but I just use a glass bowl.


  • The paper bag method makes one serving of homemade popcorn.
  • The glass bowl method makes two servings of homemade popcorn.
