Homemade Butter in 5 Minutes Using KitchenAid Stand Mixer

How to Make Butter at Home: Instant Homemade Butter / Makhan / लोणी in KitchenAid Stand Mixer (5 Minutes Homemade Butter)

Hello Foodies,
        My grandma used traditional wooden butter churner(Ravi in Marathi) to make butter, and I used to help her to churn. My Aai(mom) use the food processor to churn the curd or cream. And sometimes she uses mixer grinder too. I saw both the ways(my grandma and mom's ways) work well all the time, and butter (Loni/Makhan) comes out super delicious. And now, I learned another method, or we can say modernized time-saving way to make butter from scratch. That is using heavy whipping cream(no need to collect milk cream or no need to prepare curd) and KitchenAid stand mixer to make butter. 

Thankfully, it didn't take more than 5 minutes to churn and separate butter and whey. And, when I first made, I was pleasantly surprised by the results turned out the same as my grandma's and mom's way. 

I also use my KitchenAid Stand Mixer to prepare Chapati/Roti dough and it takes 5 minutes from start to end.

            To make this homemade butter in KitchenAid stand mixer, I have used heavy whipping cream from Costco. From this one can(1 Qt)of Heavy whipping cream, I got approx 2 1/2 cups of buttermilk/whey, 13-14 Oz butter. And I have used butter to make ghee(as we(my husband and me) are a huge ghee fan) and got approx 13 Oz ghee. Used whey to knead the dough and some of it to drink after Milk(as it is good for digestion). It took me 5 minutes to churning the cream in my KitchenAid stand mixer. 

             Once butter is ready, ghee can be prepared in no less than 10 minutes. Using one Ingredient that is heavy whipping cream, you will get five products - 
Cottage Cheese/Paneer
Berry(Ghee solids)

Indian Traditional Method to Prepare Butter:
The wooden butter churner is stirred vigorously in both directions with the palms of our hands, which will help in separating the butter from the curd or cream. Soon the butter gets separated from the cream to the side of the vessel. Scoop out the separated butter and store it in a separate bowl. Leftover whey can be consumed as a sweetened or salty drink and can be used in many dishes. This whey we call it as Tak or buttermilk. Butter adds a lovely flavor to the sauteing vegetables, meat and tastes delicious, especially when combined with garlic. 

Here is a step by step instructions on how to make butter at home easily.

Preparation Time: 5 Minutes.

  • Heavy Whipping Cream 1 Qt / Heavy Cream 1 Qt
  • Ice Cold Water 8-10 Cups

  • Pour heavy whipping cream into a KitchenAid Stand Mixer's mixing bowl.
  • Using the Wire Whisk/Whip attachment, start mixing the cream.  
  • Start on speed 1 and slowly increase speed up to 8 or 10(You may need to hold a kitchen towel over the openings to prevent excess splashing).
  • In approximately 4-5 minutes, you will notice the butterfat separating from the buttermilk.  
  • Once the butterfat thickens and sticks to the whisk, drain off the buttermilk into a mason jar for later use.
  • Pour 2 cups of ice-cold water into the mixer, and rinse the remaining buttermilk out of the butter by running mixer on medium speed(Be sure to use your kitchen towel to cover up any open areas to avoid splashing).
  • Repeat the cold water rinse (3-4 times), until water is clear after mixing and let it sit for 10-15 minutes to drain all the excess water from the butter
  • Or using spatula press butter onto the side of the mixing bowl(drain any remaining water into the sink).

How to Store Butter?
           Wrap prepared butter in butter paper and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3-4 weeks.

To Make Flavored Butter:
  • If you want to add flavoring(salt, herbs) to the butter, add it after you have made the butter and pressed all of the water out and then mix your favorite flavor. 
  • Because if you add the flavoring before, the cream may not separate properly and much of your flavor would be washed away during the rinses.

What do I do with the buttermilk that is drained off?
  • The buttermilk work excellent in preparing chapati dough, in making rava omelet batter, using it you can make masala chaas, pancakes, waffles, biscuits, or any other recipe that calls for it. 
My Take:
  • To speed up the butter-making process: Remove Heavy Whipping Cream/whipping cream from the fridge 10-15 minutes before beginning and let sit on the kitchen countertop.
  • This recipe makes approximately 14 ounces of butter and about 2 ½ cups of buttermilk.

  1. Thank you so much for this tutorial. I successfully made raw cream butter this afternoon using my food processor. So simple and much less expensive than buying it at the store.
