The easiest way to get your baking ingredients to room temperature is to simply allow them to sit at – room temperature. Simples?? But this method usually means that you have to plan ahead.

There are a few tips I can share with you but you have to promise toshare your last minuite bakes with me. Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and Ill share the on my facebook page
Tip #1 Eggs
Place eggs in a bowl and cover them with warm (not hot) tap water. Allow the eggs to sit in the water for about 5 minutes or until they are no longer cool to the touch.
Tip #2 Butter
( There are a few)
The easiest way to bring frozen butter to room temperature to take out your handy veggie grater and grate the butter into a bowl.
Within no time, your butter will be soft and ready to be added to your favorite recipe.
If you have a little bit of time on your hands,( I generally dont) you can cut the butter into fourths and then cube into smal
l pieces. The smaller the cubes, the quicker the butter will soften. Just leave them at room temperature for about an hour or until soft to the touch.
Microwaving Butter , now this can be tricky as you may end up with a pool of butter so make sure to be patient and take care
1.) Place the butter on a microwave safe plate. Leave the paper wrapper on, but make sure its NOT a foil wrapped wrapper
2.) Place the plate int
o the microwave and heat on high power for 5 seconds. Open microwave give the butter a 1/4 turn ( Turn it on its side) and heat again for 5 seconds. Do this on all four long sides of the butter. Typically after about 20-25 seconds my butter is perfect. This time will vary depending on your microwave
