How to make easy brown butter to flavor all your sweet and savory recipes


  • 200 g Butter - unsalted or salted 


  1. Place butter cut into equal pieces in a skillet or saucepan.
  2. Heat over medium heat until the butter is completely melted.
  3. Stir with a wooden spoon and cook until the butter begins to foam and turn a light brown color and until it smells nutty.
    (Be careful not to overcook or it will burn).
  4. Remove from heat and pour the brown butter into a bowl through a fine sieve to catch any residue.
  5. Let cool to room temperature to use immediately or cover and store in the fridge.


  1. Use unsalted butter for sweet recipes like madeleines, financiers, cookies etc.
    Or use salted butter for your cooking recipes like making sauces or cooking your meat and fish.
  2. During cooking, water evaporates so the amount of butter before cooking will not be the same after.
  3. Let it come back to room temperature to use it immediately in a recipe, or put it in the refrigerator for about 1 week or in the freezer for 3 months.
