A delightful and unique twist on traditional bread, this Popcorn Stuffed Bread combines the light, airy texture of popcorn with the soft, fluffy goodness of freshly baked bread. Perfect as an appetizer or a fun snack, this recipe is sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike.


  • 2 cups of freshly popped popcorn
  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of warm water (110°F/45°C)
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) of active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter (for brushing)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the warm water, sugar, and active dry yeast. Stir gently and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the activated yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix until a dough forms. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. If it’s too dry, add a bit more water.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.
  4. While the dough is rising, prepare 2 cups of popcorn. You can use your preferred method (stovetop, microwave, or air-popped). Ensure the popcorn is lightly salted but not overloaded with butter or other seasonings.
  5. Once the dough has risen, punch it down to release the air. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball, then flatten it out into a disc about 6 inches in diameter. Place 1/2 cup of popcorn in the center of each disc. Carefully fold the edges of the dough over the popcorn and pinch to seal, forming a stuffed ball.
  6. Place the stuffed dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover with a damp cloth and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Brush the tops of the dough balls with melted butter. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  8. Allow the bread to cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before serving.

This Popcorn Stuffed Bread is a delightful and surprising treat that combines the crunch of popcorn with the soft, warm goodness of freshly baked bread. Perfect for a fun family gathering or a unique snack, it's sure to be a hit with everyone. Enjoy!
