Softening Butter Quickly

butter under glassI often have spur of the moment baking ideas and get annoyed when a recipe calls for softened butter. Even when "gently" microwaved, I have a tendency to melt some of it. The best way around that is to pour boiling water in a microwave safe glass in order to heat it the glass. Pour the water out and flip it over the cold butter stick. It will be perfectly soft and ready to use in a couple minutes.

Me too! Almost 100% of the time, some part of it is melted away. So frustrating. :)

While in the wrapper, I put it in my jeans pocket!

If you have just used your oven or using it put the butter you want softened on a plate on your stove top. Same with when you are using your dryer. Put it on top of the dryer. If you don't need it in a hurry just put it in your microwave oven for a while with it off and it will get soft.


If you have hot toast or roll put it in the toast or roll for a minute or two and it will be soft enough to spread.
