How to “Cream” Butter
Many recipes for baked goods instruct to “cream” the butter. This helps incorporate air into the batter, giving a light and tender texture.
- Measure the amount of butter you need and soften it just enough that your finger easily leaves an impression in the butter when you press it.
- Place the butter in a large bowl and use a wooden spoon or an electric mixer to stir or beat the butter until it is smooth, creamy and a uniform texture.
- Add the sugar or other ingredients called for in the recipe to further cream them together.
