The Baking Butter Exchange That Adds Nutty Richness To Your Recipes
Butter adds richness and structure to baked goods, with a neutral taste that's not distracting. Still, it's worth changing up your cakes and cookies by using nut butter instead.
Try replacing half of the butter called for in your recipe with smooth nut butter such as peanut or almond. Your baked goods will take on an extra robust, nutty essence.
Only replacing half of the butter ensures that your treats will still have the proper texture. Cream together the butter, nut butter, and other ingredients in your recipe as usual.
Creaming the ingredients together until smooth ensures an even texture. Depending on the sweetness of the nut butter, you may need to adjust the sugar in your recipe.
Bake the goods according to your recipe's instructions and enjoy the sweet and nutty aroma that fills your kitchen. Your treats will have an extra kick of fragrance and flavor.
Try using this trick to make peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, almond butter brownies, or cashew butter cupcakes. Make sure your recipe will work well with nutty flavors first.
