Test #3: The Creaming Test
Creaming butter & sugar to be light & fluffy, in 7 minutes.
The creaming test is often the first baking step in many cookie and cake recipes; and is incorporating the maximum amount of air bubbles into ingredients, so a recipe will rise in the oven and be light in texture.
It is recommended to use soft, but not melted margarine or butter.
A scraper beater is the ideal attachment for creaming recipes as it scrapes the sides & the base of the bowl, so you don’t have to stop during the mixing process, to scrape down the bowl.
The Creaming test is for the following recipes: butter creams, icing, butter cakes
