Why use butter in baking?
Butter can be used in many different ways. With it, basic dough is easier to shape and when used in biscuits and cake batters it builds a nice spongy or crusty texture. It makes shaping a wheat dough easier by lubricating the gluten network. In coffeecakes and cookies butter guarantees a crispy and fluffy texture. When used with croissants and doughs for puff pastry, it gives the delicacies a flakey texture. When used in a proper way, butter offers plenty of genuine taste and delicious experiences.
Only the best butter is good enough!
”As one of the judges in the television show The Great Bake Off: Finland, I have seen how home bakers appreciate the taste and other qualities of butter. There is a huge consumer segment that is not willing to settle for second-best when buying baked goods.”Read Mika’s blog
