Recipe Tips On How To Make Whipped Honey Butter
- Adding Salt – This recipe calls for unsalted butter as well as salt. Adding the two separate ingredients allows you to have more flavor control when making this butter.
- Softened Butter – Remove the butter from the refrigerator a few hours before you plan to make this recipe. Doing so brings the butter to room temperature while softening it. Allowing it to whip up better when it’s in the mixer.
- Using A Mixer – This homemade whipped honey butter does call for the use of a hand or stand mixer! High-speed mixing is necessary for getting this butter to its light and fluffy consistency.
- Gifting Tip – If you plan to gift jars of this honey butter, transfer the butter into a piping bag with a large piping tip. Pipe the butter into clear glass jars for a pretty presentation!
I’ve even perfected a copycat Chick-fil-A Sauce Recipe that whips up in just 5 minutes! So, when I make the kids Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets you can bet I have that sauce as well as my Maple Mustard Dipping Sauce ready for them!
How Do I Store This Whipped Honey Butter?
Store the finished honey butter in the fridge in an airtight container. I like storing mine in a mason jar but any Tupperware or tightly sealed container works! Honey butter stored in the fridge lasts for up to 1 month.
I Prefer Storing My Butter At Room Temperature – Can I Do That With This Butter?
Yes, I prefer this whipped honey butter stored at room temperature too because it keeps it’s texture as long as it doesn’t get too warm. If storing this butter at room temperature you’ll want to use it up within 1 week.
Why Do My Butter Ingredients Look Wet And Thick?
That’s normal for the butter mixture to look wet and thick before using the mixer. After it’s beaten with the mixer it’ll become the light and fluffy texture that we’re looking for!
Can I Use Honey That I Harvested From My Own Bee Hive In This Whipped Honey Butter Recipe?
I haven’t tried and tested that with this recipe. Feel free to give it a try though!
Can I make this fruity?
Yes, if you’re looking for a whipped strawberry honey butter or even raspberry or blackberry, simply add a few tablespoons of jam to the mix. You may find you don’t need the powdered sugar if you add any fruit preserves though.
