Airy and fluffy whipped butter that will delight everyone. It is very simple yet impressive. It is great to serve as is or spruced up with fun toppings. I first tried this in a Copenhagen coffee shop & bakery last summer, and fell in love with the concept. They simply had a whipped butter ‘mountain’ on the counter for guests to help themselves! I simply had to recreate it and get creative with it.

Whipped Butter Tip

  • You want your butter to be slightly firmer than room temperature.
  • Play around with what you add in! I love using buttermilk or crème fraîche for a bit of tang.
  • Using high quality butter will make this recipe even better.
  • Get creative with the toppings, I love flaky salt but I often add things like lavender, garlic salt, honey or even olive oil.
