1 Cake Mix
½ C Oil
Mix together, plop into pan in “balls” and bake at 350 degrees for 4-5 minutes.
If you use a chocolate cake mix, throw in ½ bag of milk chocolate chips and ½ bag of semi-sweet chocolate chunks. A Funfetti cake mix makes perfect little cookies that beg to be frosted in the “Best Buttercream Frosting In Town!”

Kettle Corn Recipe from the Kitchen of Jason Teater – 2012
- Heat 1/4 cup oil in a big kettle on medium high heat.
- Add 1/2 cup popping corn.
- Top with 1/3 cup sugar.
- Put the lid on.
As soon as the first kernel pops, start shaking the pot. I found it was easier to shake the body side to side and hold the arms more still, but either way you have got to shake it so the sugar doesn’t burn on the bottom.
Stop and take it off the heat when the popping slows. If you wait too long or don’t shake enough, the sugar starts to burn. My kettle gets about half full.
Quickly transfer to a big bowl and sprinkle/toss with a teaspoon of salt.
Serves about 2 people but only takes about 6 minutes to make a batch.
3 cups Flour
1 3/4 teaspoons Salt
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 Cup Warm Water **I believe it has to be about 105 degrees for the yeast to work properly. Too hot and it kills the yeast, too cold and it doesn’t “feed.” It usually make it just a little hot to the hand coming out of the faucet and it is usually fine.
1 1/4 teaspoon Sugar
1 pkg Yeast (if you are scooping out of a big jar it is 2 1/4 teaspoons)
Mix the Sugar, Water and Yeast and let it set for five mins. You should have foam on the top that is 1/2-1 inch tall.
Mix the Flour, Salt and Oil with a fork.
Mix the yeast mixture with the flour mixture and knead for 5 minutes.
Roll out to fit your pan. I usually sprinkle the pan with corn meal before I put the skin down. Top with your favorite toppings and cook for about 15 minutes on 500 degrees.
My favorite topping combo is butter and garlic salt as your “sauce,” slices of fresh mozzarella (the kind that is water packed in a ball), slices of tomatoes, basil, bacon, feta and chicken. Pesto sauce with tomatoes, mozz cheese and chicken is also really good.
I find it fun to experiement with whatever is in the fridge. 🙂
