If you need to soften butter quickly do not microwave it. Instead, try this super easy one-minute trick and you’ll be ready to start baking or buttering a slice of fresh-baked bread in no time.
What you’ll need:
A plate, a glass, and some hot water.
How to do it:
Place butter on a plate large enough that you can top with a glass.
Add hot water to the glass. Allow to sit for approximately one minute; until the glass is very warm.
Dump water and QUICKLY dry the glass. Now invert it on top of the butter.
Wait about 30 seconds, remove the glass and your butter should be soft enough for baking or whatever else you needed it softened for.
*if the butter isn’t soft enough just yet, repeat the above process.
