Quick Tip #1 How To Soften Butter Fast
And I mean like, five minutes fast. Fifteen tops.
Do you just HATE having al the ingredients you want to make something out of on hand, and when you’re measuring out ingredients you realize: darn it, the butter’s not softened yet! And you take it out of the fridge and wait a few hours to let it soften.
Well, if you’re like me, that happens almost EVERY TIME I make something. I just forget! If I make something 100 times, I’ll only remember to get the butter out 5 times beforehand. I’m scatterbrained.
Have you Google searched for “how to soften butter fast”, “how to soften butter quickly”, or “how to soften butter in five minutes” or something like that? My web history is full of that. And the articles tell you to put it on the oven while it’s preheating, put it in the microwave with the power on low, chop it into chunks…but does everyone have a microwave with heat settings? I don’t. Then I tried the oven method, and my butter totally melted on the oven! Finally, I tried the chopping method. Worked like a charm! People ain’t lying, butter softens FAST when it’s teeny sized.
Either chop the butter into really, really thin (as thin as you can make it anyway) slices, small chunks or grate it. Benefits of slicing are that you can home your knife skills, grating benefits are that grating gives you much smaller bits of butter. But I just slice the butter, it’s hard to hold the butter while you’re grating it! Plus it’s hard to get the butter out. I used to think this was a waste of time, so I just waited out the few hours. Now I think it’s sorta fun in some way. You can soften your butter with these real, usable tricks within five to ten minutes, fifteen tops, depending on your amount of butter.
