How To Make honey butter In (less than) 5 minutes

When butter meets honey, there’s magic in the air – literally. And by that, we mean that the whipping (the act of introducing air to the mixture) is what helps you create that heavenly light and fluffy texture.

Using a bowl and a hand mixer (or a stand mixer), whip together the softened butter, honey, and salt until light and fluffy. Using a spatula, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and transfer the honey butter to a serving dish.

Honey Butter Recipe Q&A

Here are some commonly asked questions about how to make Honey Butter:

What’s the best butter to use? Since this butter easily becomes the star of the show, opt for a good quality unsalted butter. Any brand will do, but some that we love are Organic Valley, Kerrygold, and Land O’ Lakes.

If I’m adding salt, why can’t I use salted butter? We suggest that you use unsalted butter here so you can control the salt and so that the butter will whip easily. And not only is that a good rule of thumb for this recipe, but any baker will tell you that unsalted butter is almost always the better choice for baked goods because it is fresh, clean tasting, and gives you a clear palette to work with. However, if you only have salted butter on hand, use that, and then reduce or omit the added salt.

What type of honey should I use? We think it’s always best to support local honey makers, which is why we suggest you purchase honey that is local to your area. You’ll want to use fresh, pure honey that is easily pourable.

how to store Leftover Sweet Whipped Butter

You can store honey butter at room temperature for up to 3 days. But for longer storage, we recommend placing it in a covered container in the fridge or in a butter crock. Or, you could make it into a compound butter roll (see instructions below).

Making compound butter

One easy way to store this Honey Butter is to roll it into a compound butter. Making a compound butter roll makes it easy to refrigerate for longer storage, and also for gifting. (Hot Tip: Gifting some homemade cornbread muffins and a batch of this honey butter is the fastest way to anyone’s heart).

Set out a 12-inch square piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap on the counter. Using a spatula, place the batch honey butter in the center and then gently fold the parchment or plastic wrap up, over, and around the butter. Gently roll the butter into a log shape and twist the ends of the plastic or parchment to seal the butter inside. Store in refrigerator. Once the butter has hardened, you can simply cut slices from the compound butter log to place atop a warm cornbread muffin.
