This is a little naughty treat that can turn a long, hard day into a very pleasant affair!

100g good quality corn kernels

4 tablespoons of vegetable oil

100g light brown sugar

50g unsalted butter

2 tablespoons agave syrup or golden syrup

2 tablespoons double cream

Pinch of salt


Preheat the oven to 150C

Place the oil and kernels into a heavy based saucepan and pop on a high heat and cover with a lid

It will take a minute or so for the corn to start popping

The pops will be regular

When they start slowing down to 1 pop per 3-4 seconds, remove from the heat

Do not take the lid off, there will still be a few un-popped ones and let them cool

In the mean time make the sauce

Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a saucepan and bring to boil

Add the water and double cream and salt, stir and let cool

Combine with the popcorn and bake for 30 minutes

Stir a few times and make sure it does not burn

Leave to cool and serve
