- 1/2 cup room temperature butter
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 cup honey
Start by whipping the room temperature butter until it becomes light and fluffy. This process incorporates air into the butter, making it lighter and easier to spread.
Once your butter is whipped, mix in the vanilla and egg yolk. These ingredients add flavor and richness to your honey butter.
Now, it’s time to add the honey. Do this gradually, whipping it into the butter mixture until it’s fully incorporated. You’re looking for a light and fluffy texture, similar to whipped cream.
Your Honey Butter is now ready to serve. You can use it immediately for the freshest flavor, or transfer it to an airtight container and refrigerate it for later use. If refrigerating, let the butter sit at room temperature for a few minutes before serving to soften it up. Enjoy this sweet and creamy spread on your favorite breads or baked goods.
