How Long Does it Take To Make Brown Butter?
Depending on the amount of butter you use, it will take approximately 5 minutes from when you start for the butter to turn golden brown. TIP: If you slice the butter it will melt more evenly. At this point it will smell intensely buttery and nutty.
What is The Best Butter For Buttercream?
I prefer using unsalted butter. This allows me to control the salt content. However, you can use either salted or unsalted butter to make buttercream frosting. When shopping, keep an eye out for a high quality butter with a higher fat content as it will produce the best buttercream possible.
Can You Overbeat Buttercream?
Over beating the frosting will whip too much air (or bubbles) into the mix which will ruin the texture. No one wants a wonky textured buttercream so beat lightly.
Should Buttercream taste like butter?
If you taste the frosting on it’s own it may taste like butter but fear not, when it’s tasted with cake it will be the perfect pair.
What Else is Brown Butter Used For?
Once you’ve tasted brown butter buttercream you may just want to use brown butter on a more regular basis. Brown butter adds a delicious, deep flavor to all kinds of savory and sweet recipes—from cakes and cookies all the way to seafood and pasta dishes. So good, you may just want to spoon it over everything.
