Use unsalted butter. Salt counteracts leavening agents like baking powder. Just the right amount of salt is added to BEL Box ingredient bags. Using salted butter throws off this sensitive balance and can cause your recipe to be dense or taste too salty.
How to melt butter. The quickest way to melt butter is in the microwave. Cut butter into tablespoon sized pieces and place in a microwave safe bowl. Cover with a paper towel. Microwave for 30 seconds. Check butter. If it isn't melted, continue to microwave for 10 second intervals checking after each. If butter is mostly melted, but a few small pieces remain, stir until the pieces melt. Be careful taking the bowl out of the microwave! It can be very hot.
