Pre-heat oven on 180 degrees C and prepare cupcake tray.
Make popcorn as per your preferred method (popcorn maker, stovetop, etc)
Sprinkle salt over popcorn
You need to mill 150g of popcorn, but only about 100g will fit into your TM Bowl. Thus, do 2 batches of 75g to get popcorn flour. Mill the popcorn for 7 sec / speed 10 (Set aside)
Repeat with another 75g Popcorn
Cook the Butter and Sugar on 10 min, Varoma, speed 1.
Add all the other Cupcake ingredients including the reserved popcorn flour. Mix until well combined.
Pour in cupcake liners and bake 15-18 min (until knife come out clean)
You can use any recipe you like for this, including Thermomix or other methods, but if not sure of a recipe, follow this:

Gluten Free option is to use normal GF flour or Arrowroot flour in stead of normal flour. Remember to use GF baking powder as well.
The Popcorn flour is VERY static. Put your spatula in a bit of water or milk when trying to empty the TM Bowl. That should help with he flour sticking to the sides
