The recipes need some tweaking,

Then I whipped up a pancake batter. I was hoping I could replace the flour with popcorn, but…it didn’t really thicken up. I did use less flour than usual, though.

Both recipes are pretty time consuming, but worth it if you love popcorn. I will perfect the recipes and get back to you soon!
