I’ve been cooking up a muffin and cake storm and all these recipes require melted butter. Melting butter is messy business and I like to reduce how often I have to clean as much as possible.
So now I put a small dish on top of my bowl to catch all the butter splashes. I put the plate the wrong way up so the steam can get out and there isn’t a seal between the bowl and plate. So simple and so effective.
Just be carefully when lifting the plate off as some steam still comes out. If you forget the plate you can clean your microwave really easily and quickly with vinegar and water.
