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.

ABC of using butter

  • Butter is used in baking due to the good qualities and inimitable taste it gives pastries.
  • Butter lubricates the gluten network in doughs, making it more elastic for easier shaping.
  • Butter gives products their typical texture: flakiness in products that are rolled, crispyness & fluffyness in products that are frothed.
  • The temperature of the butter is important. Butter needs to be tempered to the correct temperature for different types of products.
  • Puff pastry

    The amount of butter used in the puff pastry affects how easy it is to roll, how flaky it is, how well the pastries bake, and their taste and colour.

  • Biscuits

    Valio butter creates delicious taste and great crispiness to biscuits.
