Use a high-quality unsalted butter with standard fat content unless high butterfat is called for in the recipe or when making clarified butter. Most of the cakes in this book require standard AA grade unsalted butter. When butter is used in its solid form, it is essential for the butter to be cool room temperature (65° to 75°F/ 19° to 23°C).
