What Is Toasted Milk Powder?

When you make brown butter, the colour & flavour come from the toasting of the milk solids. Milk powder is made of dehydrated milk solids, so by toasting it we’re basically making a dried, concentrated brown butter. Using toasted milk powder alongside brown butter will give the nutty, caramelised butter an extra hit of flavour. This is why it’s such a popular ingredient in chocolate chip cookies.

How It’s Used

To toast milk powder, all you need to do is place the desired quantity into a frying pan then cook over a gentle heat, stirring regularly until it turns a deep, golden brown colour. You’ll know when it’s done because it will smell super nutty.

If you want the powder to be finer, let it cool down then give it a quick blitz in a jug blender.

That’s it! Make sure to store it in an airtight container or jar to keep it fresh.

I like to always have a jar of the stuff on hand as it’s such a useful ingredient!
