Have you heard a phrase “Don’t overwhip your cream, you’ll turn it to butter!”?🤔 Well, that’s it! That’s all you, basically, need to know about making homemade butter😅

But in case, you want to learn a bit more about this basic cooking technique, and maybe take a note of a couple of ways you can improve this process (like by flavouring it with coffee & orange), this blog post is for you!

After reading this post, you’ll not only:

  • learn 3 simple steps to make a homemade butter,
  • find out about the tools that you can use to make it QUICK & HUSTLE-FREE
  • …but also explore 1 of the 3 culinary techniques that you can use to make a flavoured butter🤓✌

You can watch the full video of me making Coffee & Orange flavoured BUTTER here

Step 1 - Flavour cream

  • 500g Heavy cream
  • 1 Orange
  • 100g Roasted coffee beans

Ingredients, you’ll need


  1. Peel your orange, or better rasp it. The more surface area there is for the cream to get its flavours from, them better the infusion process is going to work.
  2. Pour heavy cream in a medium size pot*, add in orange peels and roasted coffee beans.
  3. Bring the mix to simmer, and cook on light simmer for about 20-30 min**, while continuously whisking. Make sure that cream doesn’t burn or stick to the bottom of the pot, and not film is formed on the top.
  4. Strain the cream and cool it down back to room temperature at least, or even refrigerate. 
*If you have access to a Sous Vide machine, I’d highly recommend you to use it instead. It will give you more deeply infused aromas.
**If you decide to use a Sous Vide, cook for 4h at 195F / 90C.

Step 2 - Churn butter

  • Cream from Step 1
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt



  1. Put the coffee & orange infused cream into a food processor.
  2. Turn on the processor and whip the cream to a “whipped cream” consistency.
  3. Add in salt and turn it back on.
  4. After a few moments (1-2 min), you will notice cream splitting into buttercream and butter.
  5. Strain off the buttercream (use it for baking in the future).
  6. Pulse the butter a few more times, more butter cream will come out. Strain it off.

Step 3 - Wash butter

  • 100g Cold water



  1. Add in the processor with butter a little ice-cold water and pulse it a few times.
  2. Strain off water, add more in and repeat until all the water stays clear. This means you butter is washed and ready!
  3. At this stage you can add some seasoning to it if you wish.
  4. Mold or package you butter and refrigerate.
