Homemade Butter in 5 Minutes!

I know, you probably think I’m crazy, but it’s true! There is a way to make wonderfully lovely butter in 5 minutes. The result is buttery and delicious with a clotted cream texture. If you ever run out of butter, this recipe is a life saver. Here’s how I make butter in 5 minutes:

All you’ll need:

1 tub heavy cream

1 glass jar with lid.

Pinch of salt.


Step 1: Pour the cream in the jar and seal the lid tightly. Shake the jar rigorously. The cream will transform into butter after about 5 minutes. You’ll notice the liquid has formed a solid and the white is now yellow.

Step 2: Unscrew the lid and drain the residue buttermilk liquid. You’ll need to wash any remaining butter milk out now. Place your butter in a bowl and rinse under cold water. With a spoon, press the butter to help release excess liquid.

Step 3: Serve in a ramekin and serve or place in a tupperware box in the fridge. It will keep for 1 day or 2.

    I need to try this! Butter goes fast in my house and the kind I like at the store is often sold out. Looks like fun, I think the kids will really have fun with this! :)

    By cream do you mean the stuff called heavy whipping cream, its all that is available in my local grocer market?
