Popcorn Cake

A delicious cake made of popcorn!

Here’s a twist on cake, a popcorn cake! There’s no flour, sugar, or eggs like a traditional cake. It’s made mostly of popcorn and marshmallows. If you like popcorn balls, this is a definite recipe you will find your liking!

Made this recipe for the last birthday celebrated at home and it was a hit!


Here’s the Recipe: 

4 qts. popped popcorn (16 cups)

1/2 lb. salted nuts

m&m’s or jellybeans

1/2 bag colored marshmallows (optional)

Mix these dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

When I made the cake I used m&m’s and chose not to do the colored marshmallows. Next time I make it I would like to add the colored marshmallows to see what it’s like. 

Melt together 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup oil, and 1 large bag of marshmallows.

Pour melted ingredients over dry ingredients in the bowl. Mix all ingredients together well.

Once all ingredients are mixed, pour mixture into angel food cake pan, bundt cake pan, etc. I used a bundt cake pan.

Once the mixture has set for a portion of time, flip over to serve and keep covered for freshness. I flipped mine over after about an hour and served it several hours later and it held it’s shape.

Leaving Basketball Behind….

I played basketball all four years of high school and enjoyed every minute I got to play. The first year I started I was the timid newbie at the sport. After the first basket I made I fell in love with the sport and have loved it ever since. I will miss playing with my girls next year, but I will come and support them. Basketball will always be such a fun memory to look back on.
