Homemade honey butter
Have you ever had honey butter? It is most often served along with homemade biscuits in some restaurants. It can be made at home with just two simple ingredients: honey and butter!
Honey butter is a perfect spread that adds just a touch of sweetness. The taste of both the honey and butter is transformed and tastes delicious.
Step by step directions
How to make it
In this section, I share step-by-step photos, cooking methods, techniques, and a general overview. For detailed instructions, temperatures, and timing, check the printable recipe card below.
- Start with softened butter. You don't want it melted, but you do want it nice and soft.
- Blend butter with a mixer until very smooth.
- Add honey and blend again.
- Place butter mixture in a bowl.
- Top with additional honey as a garnish, if desired.
What type of honey should I use?
Honey comes in many different flavors. The flavors usually come from the type of pollen the bees collected just prior to harvesting the honey.
Clover honey is the most common type of honey. Use what you have on hand when making this recipe. I use the honey I harvested from my honey bees.
To store honey butter
I store my honey butter in a small bowl or in a butter crock at room temperature. If your room is too warm and the butter becomes too soft, store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
You should be able to store at room temperature for several weeks. If it's not being used daily, I would store it in the refrigerator until needed. Allow time for butter to come to room temperature before using after refrigeration.
Using whipped honey butter
We spread this delicious butter on homemade rolls, buttermilk biscuits, toast, and bagels or over a warm tortilla. You could also spread it on pancakes and waffles or add a small amount to a warm bowl of oatmeal.
