Homemade Butter!

Simple Butter Recipe:


I didn't use any salt because I wanted to use this butter for my frosting. So with or with our salt, pour the heavy whipping cream into a bull and with an electric mixer (I used handheld) keep mixing the cream


You will see it gradually get thicker 


and thicker 


It will start to look like whip cream, keeeeeep going 


It will start to turn a little yellow


and curdle


and then viola, it's butter!


I had to mix for almost 20 minutes. So, my suggestion is using a kitchen aid mixer. My handheld is pretty high on it's lowest speed, so not too slow on a kitchen aid. 
I probably could have gone another solid 10 minutes to get the consistency a little thicker.... WHICH I would suggest for making butter cream frosting. The softer consistency made it harder for it to work as frosting. I also think that if I would have put it in the fridge for a few hours it would have been better to make frosting with. As far as delicious butter for bread, I think the softer the better.

    1. It's pretty much the same as the directions to this recipe, except you don't want to mix or whisk it too much that it becomes thick like butter. Ingredients are similar as well, minus the salt and add 1 tablespoon or two (depending how sweet you want it) of confectioners' sugar, you probably could use granulated sugar as well. Also, I use to work at a coffee shop, where we used the canister's, with the little whip its. We literally would only add Heavy whipping cream and a pump of the vanilla syrup, used for vanilla lattes. It was delicious!
