Here is an unintended-positive-consequence that helped with the 'SMBC too Buttery' problem.

 

I had tripled my SMBC recipe, that already had cut the amount of butter in half ( 3 sticks of butter rather than 6).

To make a triple batch I used my new 7 qt. KA with the 11-wire whip that came with it. Normally I use the 5 qt. mixer with the 6-wire whip and it takes 10 to 15 minutes to get the SMBC to 'come together'.

 

After putting in only 6 of the 9 sticks of butter I was shocked to see the BC had come together and was creamy as could be.  I added another stick for good measure. But it was shocking to have the mixer make a triple batch of SMBC in a third the time !!   Very happy with this surprise result.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something
