Lessen your butter budget without buying margarine! Make your own whipped butter. It is really easy and I can't believe I put it off for so long. This is perfect for toast, pancakes, rolls, muffins...anything already cooked that you would normally smear with butter. THIS IS NOT FOR BAKING.
Using your stand mixer with your whip attachment, whip 2 sticks of butter on high until very fluffy. Once the butter is fluffy, continue with the mixer on high slowly streaming in 1/2 cup of olive oil. Once olive oil is incorporated continue the same way with the water. The butter will be very white with pretty stiff peaks.
Transfer butter to storage container. Refrigerate until set. After this you may leave it at room temperature or keep in fridge, whatever you are comfortable with.
I found this handy recipe at Tammy's Recipes.
- 2 sticks butter
- 1/2 c. olive oil
- 1/2 c. water
Whip butter in stand mixer until light and fluffy on high. Slowly add olive oil with the mixer still on high. Do the same with water. Whip until creamy white and stiff peaks form. Chill until firm, a couple of hours. Once set, you can store at room temperature or in the fridge.
