    If you don’t know how to make Brown Butter, here’s what you need to -

    • In a pan on medium heat, add 140g butter (we have added 20g extra to account for loss of moisture)
    • The butter will start to bubble and turn a nutty, brown colour - stir occasionally
    • Pour the mixture through a sieve and let cool

    Alternatively, you can also do this in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds till the butter is nutty and brown and then follow the same steps.

      In the first step, it says ‘soften the brown butter’. What do you mean by this? After I’ve browned the butter, the butter is in liquid form. It doesn’t solidify again. Is that an error or am I not understanding something? Or perhaps did you mean cool down the butter after its browned? Would really appreciate the help
