This is how you make airy whipped butter like in a restaurant

Must Try

We love to see it in restaurants: lightly beaten (cream) butter for the bread, instead of ‘normal’ butter. So much tastier and you can vary it endlessly. And before we forget: it also spreads a lot easier than cold butter!

Beat butter until fluffy

As always, we start at the beginning, which is the butter. Make sure you get good quality butter, preferably unsalted. This way you can still flavor it yourself, and say yourself: Maldon flakes or fleur de sel  tastes a lot better than the artificial salt flavor from the supermarket.

Melt the butter in the microwave or in a saucepan. Prepare a large bowl of ice water, with a smaller bowl in it. Pour in the melted butter and start beating with a whisk or mixer. Continue until the butter is as firm as whipped cream. Watch this video about fluffy butter to see how it’s done.

Bread with fresh cream

Although only butter with a little salt is delicious, we are also in favor of adding an extra flavor.

You can choose fresh or dried basil, mint, sage, garlic or oregano. But lemon zest, chili pepper and dried spices also taste delicious.

You can’t really think of it as crazy as it is possible. For example, Culy ate butter mixed with dried seaweed at Pure C. A taste experience you will never forget! Restaurant RIJKS also serves  whipped butter  (recorded here by Elizabeth on Food), just like Fico in Utrecht and De Zusters in Maarssen. And there are many more restaurants.

This is how you present your whipped butter

You can of course simply put a dollop on a plate or bowl, but we like it even more if you present it just a little nicer. You can use everything for this: from slate plates to beautiful stone dishes and from ice cream squeezers to piping bags.

Especially if you serve several flavors, a kitchen aid can be extra handy. We are fans of the quenell squeezer (a kind of ice cream squeezer that makes the shape of quenelles ) and piping bags with a serrated mouth. This allows you to make equal portions that you can serve on your most beautiful dish.

But of course you can also wrap it in a roll and let it set in the fridge. So it looks just like regular butter, but a bit more special!
