It’s with great excitement that I finally introduce you to my favorite Lurpak Cook’s Range product: BAKING! We bakers finally have a kind of butter that allows us to bake on a whim. I now can choose to bake at any moment, without having to put the butter out for hours for it to soften.

Lurpak Baking is the ideal blend of Lurpak Butter and Vegetable Oil. It has a softer texture and it’s ready to mix straight out of the fridge. It easily folds into cake mixtures and gives them a light and fluffy golden finish. This product is happiness guaranteed!

A cake I baked with this wonderful product is this fluffy chocolate cake I had once made for a friend’s birthday. I recommend you make it for any occasion. It can be a bit tedious at first, what with the separation of the egg whites and yolks then folding in the egg whites into the chocolate mixture, but with time you’ll get used to it and you’ll start making it any time you have something to celebrate.

Once the cakes are out of the oven, let them cool completely. Decorate the top of the bottom cake with the chocolate frosting, then place the top cake on the bottom one and cover them both with frosting. Decorate with red fruits (optional). Serve and enjoy for days!

This past summer, I had the pleasure to experiment the Lurpak Cook’s Range products right before their launch! 🙂 So during the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing all 10 recipes with you while at the same time demonstrating the use of each Cook’s Range product. There are 5 products, each made for specific recipes.

The first one I’m presenting today is the Clarified Butter. It’s basically 100% pure concentrated Lurpak butter. It has a rich intense taste and allows you to cook at really high temperatures, searing and locking in flavors. For storage, the Clarified Butter must be stored at room temperature, then kept refrigerated once opened. It has a shelf life of 9 months in the Middle East and 6 months in the UK.

A recipe you can make with this product is this Rice and Goat’s Cheese Cakes recipe. I found it to be a great dish to serve when you’re hosting a dinner party and you’re out of ideas. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
