Tip of the Day

Does your husband surprise you with unexpected dinner guests or is it only mine that does that?   Here is a great tip for softening butter in the event you need to get dessert in the oven ASAP…..

Take your cold butter, cut it into cubes and it will soften for you within minutes.  This is what I did on Friday night so I could make the Raspberry Buttermilk Cake after coming home with a pint of fresh raspberries.

Butter - Cubed and Ready to Use!

Butter – Cubed and Ready to Use!

I often use this trick during the summer, I find if I leave butter out to long it is actually too soft to use in cake or cookie recipes.

Happy Baking!
