Today, I’m in the mood for an easy homemade honey butter recipe.  Honey butter is considered a compound butter. A what??!!

Compound butter is one of the easiest and most impressive things you can make. It’s just a fancy-schmancy way of saying butter combined with ‘stuff’. The ‘stuff’ can be sweet or savory depending on what you’re pairing with your fancy-pants butter. I like to make herb butters for meat or bread spreads or you could try different combinations of spices. In addition to savory compound butter, there’s a lot of great sweet combinations to pair with breakfast and brunch items. You can mix in fruit, cinnamon, preserves… The choices are endless!
As I said earlier, making honey butter is easy as pie. Just kidding. Pie is NOT easy, at least for me it’s not.

Let’s start this over. Honey butter. It’s as easy as…

Sorry, couldn’t help it. Betcha you’re going to be singing that little Jackson 5 gem when you’re making this recipe. You’re welcome 🙂

Anyways, enough with the shenanigans. Here’s your quick guide to a super simple, super yum homemade honey butter recipe:

Homemade Honey Butter Ingredients from What the Fork Food Blog
Add your butter, honey and salt to bowl. Aren’t those little measuring spoons the cutest? Adam loves them because it’s an exact measurement for a pinch of salt. He does not like leaving measurements up to interpretation at all. It’s the perfectionist in him. I just like using them because they’re way to adorable to leave sitting by their lonesome in a drawer.

Homemade Honey Butter mixing stage from What the Fork Food Blog
You could use a stand mixer for a super creamy, whipped texture if whipped butter is your thing. I, however, prefer a more homemade look and feel. Plus, I don’t have to drag my stand mixer out of the cabinet. My mixed-by-hand butter is just as tasty because lazy-mom mixing is MY thing…

See the little butter swirls? I should have said I was going for a specific look that only hand mixing can achieve. It’s all about the technique. No lazy mom here!

When the honey butter is mixed, it’s ready to be served right away or you can chill it for later. If you’d like your honey butter to be in stick form, all you need to do is scoop it out of your bowl onto some plastic wrap. With the help of your spatula and plastic wrap, form the butter into a log. Wrap your honey butter log in the plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours before slicing. You can also freeze it.
