Homemade Butter

Hi guys. How are you all doing today? Todays recipe was one I happen to stumble upon.

A while ago I was making a dessert that required whipped cream. 

The chef (James Martin) mentioned that it had to be whipped for a certain amount of time or else, you will make butter. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I was like oh really thats great. ๐Ÿ˜ฎFast forward a couole of weeks, I saw a post on homemade butter and I noticed the gentleman used whipped cream and even showed the process. 

 So I went back to the chefs page and he also mentioned the same process. I was sooo excited I couldn’t wait to try it.

So here’s hoping I have got you excited enough.

Lets get started shall we ๐Ÿ™‚

INGREDIENTS : 

  • Whipped cream 

 UTENSILS : 

  • Mixing Bowl
    Hand or stand mixer 
  • Small bowl 

Prep time : 10 minutes 

Method :
Pour the whipped cream into the mixing bowl. Attach the whipping mixer to the mixer, set it to “medium – high speed and mix for 10 minutes. 

Whilst the cream is mixing it has several stages. 

 Stage 1:
Whipping stage. After about 4 minutes, you will notice that it has started forming stiff peaks. This stage is very useful if you want to make whipped cream frosting for cakes or fruits

Stage 2
Separation stage: after about 8 minutes, you will notice that its starting to form clumps, dont worry, this is the separation stage of butter and buttermilk. So take note. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Switch off the mixer. Scrape off any butter solids from the mixer. 

Drain the buttermilk and set aside (will be very useful for a recipe that requires buttermilk like red velvet cake, or any cake that calls for buttermilk. 

Remove the butter from the mixing bowl, and wash it under COLD tap water. Yes I said wash, in order to get rid of residue that makes butter go off. 

Wash until the water is clear.

For me I decided to leave it at room temperature to allow for easy spread. 

 Woohoo. Well done ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Thats it from me today.
