Gluten-free and Egg-free Recipes (with some Dairy-free options)

This is obviously not a dairy-free post! I’m on a group page on Facebook called ‘Bellini Addicts’. It’s a great place to get help with using the Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master (my new thermocooker). I’ve noticed that a lot of people complain about taking forever to make butter or even just whipped cream. I had some cream that needed to be used so I thought I’d have a go. Here are the pictures and method:

For whipped cream

Make sure that the jug is cool and that the sharp (chopping) blade is inserted. Do *not* insert the ‘butterly’ (also called mixing tool). Add the cream (it must be full fat) to the jug and set to speed 10 for 10 seconds and press start. This will give a very soft whipped cream. If you want it firmer, set to speed 6 for 3 seconds and press start. It’s done! Just to make it crystal clear – the ‘butterfly’ tool is not used.

For 4 minute butter

Again, make sure that the jug is cool and that the sharp (chopping) blade is inserted. Do *not* insert the butterfly at this stage. Set to speed 10 for 10 seconds and press start. Repeat this 4 times (50 seconds in all), scraping down the jug after the first 2 times. It should start looking like this:

Scrape down the sides with a spatula and insert the ‘butterfly’. Set to speed 3 for 2 minutes and press start. At some point soon you will hear a sloshing sound as the buttermilk separates. This happened for me at 1 minute but I let it go to 1.5 minutes to be sure and then pressed stop. This is what it looks like:

Drain the buttermilk and save for using in cakes or pancakes. After this you need to wash the butter. Add a cup of fridge cold water to the butter. Set to speed 3, 30 seconds and press start. Drain the water and repeat with another cup of water. The butter is done (picture below). If you want to add oil and salt to make spreadable butter this is when to do it.
