“Honey butter is very good on homemade white bread. I ate and made this many times as a kid. You may also use peanut butter instead of butter. Delicious!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup butter, softened (not margarine)
  • 12 cup honey

Directions

  1. 1. Place butter in a small bowl. Gradually add honey, beating constantly, until desired thickness is attained.
  2. My Note: You definitely have to use REAL butter, (not margarine) that's softened and you'll get great results. I used this on bagels, but can definitely see a lot of uses for this stuff and add-ins like orange zest. But this is great on homemade dinner rolls! Dinner guests always RAVE about this butter (little do they know how simple it is to make). For easier mixing, be sure your butter (definitely not margarine) and honey are room temperature Also, I like to use a bit of salted butter because it really does enhance the honey/butter flavor - I suggest half salted and half unsalted. I tried just adding salt once, but it doesn't really disolve well, so go with the presalted butter. A bee-keeper kept bees on our land and paid us in honey (about 80 pounds a year) so we used honey in everything -- but this was our favorite.
