I found myself in a baking mood today and thought I’d clear up a common question.
Q: When baking, do you use salted or unsalted butter?
A: UNSALTED. Why? (and how do you remember???) Baking is such a precise process that most bakers like and often need to control the exact amount of salt that is added to a recipe. Therefore, save the salted butter for your bread. Go for unsalted when ya bake. Unless otherwise specified.
Made anything good lately? Today’s recipe for me is fabulous scottish shortbread. I know I blogged baout it the last time I made it….here it is.
