  • 1/2 cup butter must be real butter, room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp milk whole or 2%


  • Make sure butter is room temperature. The best way to soften butter is to let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Add butter and milk to a stand mixer, or a mixing bowl.
  • Using a paddle attachment mix butter on medium speed for 2 minutes. Scrape sides of the bowl.
  • Using a wire whisk attachment, turn the mixer to medium-high speed and continue mixing for 2-4more minutes or until light and fluffy.


NOTE: The volume of the butter will increase as air is incorporated into it.
NOTE: Whipped butter doesn't measure the same as unwhipped butter, and shouldn't be used for baking or cooking.
NOTE: Store leftover butter in the fridge for up to two weeks, or in the freezer for up to three months.
NOTE: Let butter sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving. ti will become soft and spreadable.
