The first time my dad made popcorn bread, I thought it was the most ridiculous thing. You pop corn and then grind it up and bake it in bread. That is crazy talk. Plain old, crazy talk.
But it is good. Well, for gluten-free bread. My dad has made several hundred loaves of this bread. He uses plain air-popped popcorn and his trusty all purpose gluten free flour. And his bread maker. Well, I can’t make air-popped pop corn, so, I brought home a free refill on my popcorn from the theater. I also discovered (after measuring everything out), that the bread maker I was given was too small for this loaf. So, I improvised.
And dad, I made it even better than you do.
Next time you go to the theater, get the large popcorn and get it refilled as you leave the theater (if your theater gives you free popcorn), you will then have the most exotic ingredient in this recipe.
