Leslie from the popular food blog Stress Baking takes us through everything to do with using butter in baking! Learn whether you should use salted or unsalted butter, what "room temperature butter" actually means and how to get it there, as well as how to pick butter at the grocery store.
This week's episode is all about BUTTER!
I chat with Leslie from the popular food blog Stress Baking.
Leslie lives in coastal Massachusetts with her husband and their pets, and spends her days working remotely as a technical program manager for a software company. In her spare time she runs Stress Baking as a way to share the recipes she created, sometimes along with the stories about how the recipes came to be. Jumping into the kitchen helps her channel her anxiety and stress into a constructive (and delicious) place, and she won’t hesitate to share her failures so you can learn from her mistakes because she knows that real life isn’t “Pinterest perfect”. She’s sarcastic, self-taught, and thinks that even though life can be overwhelming - baking shouldn’t be!
Leslie has a baking basics series that is so helpful and one of the topics she covered is to do with what is room temperature butter. I found this post really handy so I asked Leslie to come on the podcast and answer that question, as well as some other pressing questions like do we used salted or unsalted butter, is the cheapest butter stick in the supermarket ok to you and how much does the temperature of butter matter in baking.
