Measure out your butter and oil and place them in a heat-proof jug or beaker.Melt your butter and solid oil. You will want to make use of a water bath to do this. Simply fill a saucepan with a few inches of water and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, Turn the heat down to a simmer and place the jug/beaker into the water. Allow to melt for around 10-15 minutes, or until the solids have completely melted.
