Should I microwave my butter to soften them?

pangrumboon | Sep 29, 2012 11:25 PM

I have been doing a lot of baking recently, but I have never been able to leave the butter to soften on its own. So i use butter from the fridge, measure it then microwave it for about 7 seconds, or until it is soft. Sometimes the bottoms starts to melt a little. Does microwaving the butter effect my "bake goods"? I have heard that it ruins the texture, which I have been having problems with lately. Should I just try to leave it outside the fridge next time? Thankyou
