Question, can butter powder replace regular butter in a recipe? For example, my corn bread requires 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter. Can that be replaced with butter powder?

I have ghee too, but trying to simplify things if I can.

Thx, fourkeelers

Use olive oil instead. Butter powder works for flavor but in baking butter provides liquid, so swap out butter for oil 1:1.

In some recipes you can swap out for the powder.
Just remember that in some recipes the butter
provides an oil for lubrication, like in a cake.
In others it is flavor,  like mashed potatoes.

Depending on your cook method, you will need
that oil for cooking. Olive oil is great as sarbar suggested.
Ghee is delicious too!

For your cornbread, you could use the powder to
prepare a dry mix, but would want to make sure to
have something so they won't stick in pan.

No, that's wrong.  You should use Pam.  :O

That butter flavoring, like in sprays and popcorn
is supposed to be one of the most toxic and
unhealthy thingd. Unflavored is a lot healthier.

The real butter powder is freeze-dried. It is cool stuff - for flavor especially. One can also get shortening that is fd as well.....

Yep. I love butter powder, was alluding to Pam,
but I am thinking sarbar doesn't want me to
mention it. Is that a four letter word here?

I can't imagine how to use a cooking spray on
the trail. Inside joke?

ETA Freeze dried shortening? Now my mind is
racing about made from scratch trail biscuits.
Thanks much sarbar.

To expand on the OPs question,
would butter powder add the lubricative
oils like natural butter when water is
added?  Or would you still need some
olive oil as sarbar suggested?  Could you
use a gifty fifty mix of butter powder and
Olive Oil to get the flavor and oil needed?

Would reconstituted fd butter be able to be
used in pastry recipes like croissants?
