Honey Butter

Mmmmm.... If you want to take a simple weeknight meal and turn it into something magical use honey butter. Last night I made my easy chili and some cornbread. I also decided to whip (ha- literally) up some honey butter. It made the cornbread magical. And I ate way too much as a result. But I don't regret it at all. For those of you who have seen the film "Julie & Julia" I thought of it last night as I was applying my heavenly glob of butter. For those of you who haven't seen that film - you need to. Immediately! Also Julie loosely states that butter makes everything delicious. You can't have too much butter. Want to know how to make honey butter? It's so simple.

Honey Butter:
2 sticks unsalted butter and 4-6 Tablespoons of honey (to taste)
Whip together while butter is soft. Serve when done.

Butter Tip: If you butter just came out of the fridge you can still use it! Microwave it on a plate for 45 seconds at 20% power. Flip half way through the warming. Add 30 second intervals if it is still too cold. I do this all the time for baking at my bakery.


  1. SO JEALOUS!!!!!! Yum. Well I could go make some, but I'm on a diet, you know those pesky things that keep you from EVERYTHING worth living for...

    I used to be an organic baker :)

  2. Lol! Dieting is hard! The honey butter was my week's splurge :)

    An organic baker? That's awesome! Well, I must say- I'm very glad that you've taken up witting :) Although feel free to pass along any baking tips- I just started this business and it's exploding! I nearly hired help over the holidays.
