My daughter bought 1L Fresh Cream intending to make Butter by herself. But she fell sick and came home with the Cream, that was close to the use-by date, asking me to use it for something. Suddenly I got a task to use up a lot of Cream. So, I decided to make Butter for the first time in my life. I knew how to make it, but I never tried. I used Bamix to beat Cream and it was a bad decision, because it was a bloody hard work. If you have a food processor, I recommend to use it.


About 200g


2 cups (500ml) Fresh Cream
Salt *optional, I added 1/4 teaspoon

  1. All you have to do is beating Cream until it separates. I recommend to use a food processor. You can use an electric mixer OR stand mixer. I have tried with Bamix and it was a very hard work.
  2. Place a sieve over a bowl, pour the separated Cream, and drain the liquid.
  3. The liquid is Buttermilk. Save it in the fridge and use it for cooking and baking. You can make lovely pancakes and scones using Buttermilk.
  4. Place the Butter in a small bowl and press to remove excess liquid. You can use your hands to squeeze it.
  5. Add Salt and mix well. While you are mixing it, more liquid might come out. You can discard it. Enjoy your homemade Butter and store it in the fridge.
  6. *Note: The yellow colour occurred naturally, however, your Butter might turn out white.
