Spreading honey butter on toast, muffins, scones, and pancakes is easy to do and delicious. When we have butter in the house, I love it! It’s excellent.
Creating Honey Butter
As I’ve already said, making honey butter is simple. Here are the things you’ll need:
- A premium salted butter (or unsalted butter and a pinch of sea salt). I adore using butter with a European flavor for this, such as Kerrygold or Plugra.
Beat room temperature butter with honey to make butter. It’s that easy.
I like to add 1/4 cup of honey for every cup of butter because this ensures that the butter isn’t overly sweet. Use 1/3 cup of honey for a richer, more noticeable honey flavor.
To make it, we use a hand mixer, but you can also use a food processor, sand mixer, or just your hands to combine the butter and honey.
The butter should be softened before beginning if you’re going to prepare this by hand; else, mixing will be too challenging.
Tips for Softening Butter
For roughly an hour, leave the butter outside at room temperature. Cut the butter into little chunks and place a bowl over it to hasten the process. Run hot water over the bowl and dry it if the kitchen is cold before putting the butter in it.
8 ounces of butter per cup
- Add one to two tablespoons of freshly grated orange zest to orange butter.
- Add 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice while making cinnamon butter.
- Add a tiny bit of freshly ground black pepper to it to spice it up a bit.
- Add some cayenne pepper (1/8 teaspoon is an excellent starting point) or hot honey to make it spicier.
- Make maple butter by swapping 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup for the honey.
How long is honey butter good for?
Refrigerate homemade butter in an airtight jar. This state will persist for a while (at least one month). Additionally, it can be frozen for up to three months.
Methods of Use
Anytime you use butter, use butter. Serve it with pancakes and spread it on bread, toast, muffins, scones, and muffins. You may even use it to cook.
I adore adding it to baked sweet potatoes or combining it with roasted vegetables. For chicken or shrimp with butter, think about combining it with some minced garlic!
