I’m a fan of flavored butter and this honey butter has to be one of my faves. It’s quite easy to “whip up” and doesn’t involve any special equipment, just a wooden spoon. With only 4 ingredients, this recipe can’t be beat!

Honey butter is great served on dinner rolls, pancakes, waffles, and anything you feel needs a little sweetened butter. I sometimes just eat a wee little bit by itself. It’s that good.

If you love flavored butter, be sure to try my garlic herb butter or my hot honey butter I serve on sweet potatoes.

How to make Honey Butter

First, gather your ingredients. There’s only four 🙂

How to Store Honey Butter

Store the butter in an air-tight container or roll the butter into a parchment paper roll.

How long does it keep?

Honey butter can keep for a while so long as it’s stored properly. If made with pasteurized butter, it can stay on the counter for about 1-2 days. Any longer and you run the risk of the butter becoming rancid.

The shelf life of butter becomes longer once you refrigerate it, up to three months. You can also freeze it, just defrost before using.

Additional Notes

  • Use unsalted butter for this recipe. However, if you only have salted, then reduce the amount of added salt.
  • Soften your butter before making this recipe. Take it out of the fridge atleast 30 minutes before using it, but I let mine sit out a little longer until it gets really soft, about 1-2 hours. If you are in a pinch, you can gently heat it in the microwave but take care not to melt it.
  • If not using straight away, be sure to wrap it once it has chilled or store it in an air tight container.
  • For an even lighter whipped butter, use a mixer to mix the ingredients. However, with really softened butter, I find a wooden spoon, or any spoon, gets great results.

Notes

  • Use unsalted butter for this recipe. If you only have salted, then reduce the amount of added salt.
  • Soften your butter before making this recipe. Ideally you should take it out of the fridge atleast 30 minutes before using it, but I let mine sit out a little longer until it gets really soft, about 1-2 hours. If you are in a pinch, you can gently heat it in the microwave but take care not to melt it.

That should work just fine. I have stored it in an airtight container with no problems.
