From the time the cream went into the bowl to the time the butter went into containers was about 10 minutes. We made whipped butter in 10 minutes! And, I know that the next time we have company I'll be making a small batch of butter for homemade bread. Geesh. Love it! Who wouldn't? This is like super woman stuff! We all love being able to eat delicious, homemade food that doesn't take forever...don't we!?
- stand or electric mixer (probably a blender would work as well?)
- Whip the cream until thick. (about 5 minutes on stand mixer)
- Beat in add-ins.
- Put them in little dipping bowls (we like these!) and put into the fridge.
- Be sure your bowl isn't too large for the amount of cream you use.
- Scrape the bowl with a spatula often while the butter is being made.
- If you like, make a large batch and divide it into different flavors.
- Many add-ins will work best if you stir them in gently after the butter is finished.
- I haven't tried the blender method but, it seems like it would work. If you've tried it...let me know!
My whipped butter flavors are:
My absolute favorite is the cracked pepper and salt butter. I can't believe how amazing it is!! I went to my local health food store and bought peppercorns and sea salt and ground it myself in my coffee grinder. Seriously amazing!! Enough talking, I need to go slice my homemade bread and have a snack! Or, let's be real...I might just pick up fancy bread at the store and pretend it's homemade.
