Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the difference between unsalted and salted butter?

    • Unsalted butter, also known as sweet cream butter, contains no added salt. It allows bakers to control the amount of salt in their recipes. Salted butter, on the other hand, has salt added to it. This can impact the flavor of your baked goods if not accounted for in the recipe.
  • What is cultured butter and how is it used in baking?

    • Cultured butter is made from fermented cream and has a tangy taste. It can be used in baking to add depth of flavor and a slightly tangy taste to your baked goods.
  • How should I store my butter to keep it fresh?

    • Butter should be stored in its original packaging in the refrigerator. It can also be frozen for longer storage. Be sure to wrap it well to protect it from absorbing other flavors.
  • Can I use margarine or shortening as a substitute for butter in baking?

    • While margarine and shortening can sometimes be substituted for butter in baking, it can affect the flavor and texture of your baked goods. Butter has a unique flavor that can't be fully replicated with substitutes.
  • Why does the quality of butter matter in baking?

    • High-quality butter can make a big difference in the taste and texture of your baked goods. It tends to have a higher fat content, which can improve the texture, and it often has a more flavorful taste.
  • What does it mean to 'cream' butter in baking?

    • Creaming butter means beating it with sugar until it's light and fluffy. This process traps air in the butter, helping to leaven your baked goods and make them light and tender.
  • Can I bake with butter that's been frozen?

    • Yes, you can bake with butter that's been frozen. However, it's best to thaw it in the refrigerator before use. If using frozen butter directly, it may be harder to evenly incorporate into your dough or batter.
  • Is there a difference in using butter that is colored vs natural colored butter?

    • There is no difference in terms of taste or baking outcomes between butter that is colored (usually with annatto or carotene to give it a deep yellow color) and natural colored butter. The color of butter can vary naturally based on the diet of the cows producing the milk.
