Homemade Whipped Butter Recipe

Craving that extra-fluffy and creamy butter from the restaurant? No need to eat out or buy restaurant butter from the grocery. Here’s an easy and fast whipped butter recipe for you and your family to enjoy during a weekend breakfast or brunch meal! Smear it on some fresh homemade Italian bread or top a scoop of it on a stack of pancakes.

Tips on Making Whipped Butter

Whipped butter is simply pure butter that’s been incorporated with air by beating to make it fluffy. Making it is pretty straightforward and easy. You will only need 2 ingredients — milk and a good butter! And it will take just a few minutes of time. The great thing about making it at home is that you can build your own signature flavors in it – like garlic butter, for starters. Here are helpful tips on how to make whipped butter:

  • Use good quality butter and full cream milk. Good butter is quite expensive, but it’s far superior in flavor and texture. Plus, it has less water content than regular table butters and butter-flavored margarine, which means you get more pure butter. Similarly, full fat milk gives the creamiest taste.
  • Salted or unsalted butter? The choice is yours, but salted butter will give you extra flavor!
  • Work on softened butter, not solid and not melted. In case you forgot to thaw it at room temperature, here’s how you can quickly soften butter: cut them into cubes. Place boiling water in a ceramic container with a lid for 5 minutes. Discard the water, then place the butter in. The butter shall soften in 10 minutes.
  • Flavor your butter! For a sweet flavored butter, vanilla bean seeds, brown sugar, honey, and lemon juice are great options to add. For savory, you can add pureed roasted garlic, red pepper flakes, worcestershire sauce, and some dried herbs. Do note that for flavored butter, you need to lessen the amount of milk or omit it entirely if you’re going to add other liquid ingredients.
  • Store your whipped butter in a plastic container or wrap logs of it in plastic wrap. Refrigerated, it’ll stay good for 10 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much butter is in whipped butter?

We say there’s less butter in whipped butter than in its regular variant, because the volume of whipped butter is not purely butter. Almost half of it is air. So between the same amount of regular and whipped, you consume less fat with the latter.

Can whipped butter be substituted for stick butter?

This fluffy butter is a good alternative for smearing in homemade bread, but will not do as a substitute for regular butter for making baked goods. It’s because there are not enough butterfat in it.

How long does whipped butter last?

It stays good for 10 days when kept in the refrigerator. Bringing it to room temperature then refrigerating it repetitively can cause spoilage because it has milk, so we recommend taking out only the portion that you will consume.
