3 Ways to Bring Butter to Room Temperature

When baking, butter of room temperature (65°F-70°F) is usually required. In this range, its evenly softened cubes will be slightly cool to the touch. It’s also important that butter retains its shape, even when pressed lightly with a finger.

5-Minute Crafts would like to tell you about 3 simple ways of bringing butter to room temperature. These methods won’t require the use of a microwave or water bath because they may cause you to miss the moment when the ideal temperature is reached.

Method 1: Cover it with a warm glass.

You’ll need:

  • A glass or cup
  • Hot water
  • A plate
  • Butter

What to do:

  1. Cut off a piece of butter that is smaller than the diameter of the cup. Put it on the plate.
  2. Pour hot water into the cup and wait a bit for it to get warm.
  3. Pour out the water and cover the piece of butter with the cup.

Method 2: Grate it.

You’ll need:

  • A grater
  • A plate
  • Butter

What to do:

  1. Grate the necessary amount of butter using the grater.
  2. Put the grated butter on the plate and wait a bit until it’s soft enough.

Method 3: Cut it into cubes.

You’ll need:

  • A cutting board
  • A knife
  • Butter

What to do:

  1. Cut the butter into bigger pieces.
  2. Then cut these pieces into cubes. Spread them out on the board — the butter will become soft much faster this way.

💡 You can put butter in the sunlight to make it melt faster.
