How To Whip Butter

I just learned how to make whipped butter within the last month. I really like having whipped butter at restaurants. It makes pancakes and baked potatoes and dinner rolls so much more fancy.

It also stretches your butter by increasing the volume by 1/3. So, you could make whipped butter just to save some money on your grocery bill.

I think it would be easy to put whipped butter in a piping bag with a decorative tip and make pretty dollops of butter. They could be made in bulk and frozen ahead of time for a party or dinner event.

Dollops of whipped cream are probably what is pictured above. Wouldn't it be fun to serve cold, pretty, whipped, dollops of butter that looked like this?

Here are the ingredients:

1/2 pound soft Butter (salted or unsalted)
1/4 cup milk

With a mixer beat until fluffy. Butter will be almost white when whipped.

Easy peasy. :)

By the way, I found that the whisk attachment to my blender did a better job than the paddle attachment.

How interesting! I wouldn't have thought that milk could be mixed into butter like that. I guess I always thought that soft butter always had some kind of oil added to it. Thanks for sharing!
