Rubbing Flour Into Butter
Once you know how to rub butter with the flour you’ll be able to make all sorts of delicious fruit crumbles and cakes. Here’s how to do it:
Using only your fingers, and not the palms of your hands, pick up a chunk of the butter with the flour. Rub your thumbs against your fingers, so the butter and flour slowly falls through your fingertips.
Then pick up some more butter and flour and do the same thing again, and again, and again!
Keep going until the butter and flour look like grains of sand or breadcrumbs. This may take you some time, but be patient – the results will be worth it…
