Hi Bold Bakers!

One of my all time most-favorite and most-used ingredients is butter. As bakers we get used to thinking of butter as an ingredient but butter itself is an amazing blank canvas for so many flavors! This recipe and method for How to Make Homemade Flavored Butters will change the way you think about using butter as well as other simple ingredients you have in your kitchen.

My Homemade Flavored Butters recipe is brought to you by the Feed a Bee Initiative. Feed a Bee is a national effort to plant more flowers and forage for honey bees and other pollinators. This holiday season, I’m celebrating pollinators for the role they play in bringing squash, cranberries, honey, pumpkins, apples and more to our tables as we gather with friends and family! Visit FeedABee.com to learn more and use #FeedABee to spread awareness and help feed the pollinators that help feed us. In my Flavored Butters recipes, I’ve used many lovely ingredients that are helped by bees.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Butter

First, it’s the perfect time of year for pumpkins. Whether for a holiday breakfast or lovely little dessert who wouldn’t love to spread some Pumpkin Cinnamon Butter on a slice of my Best Ever Banana Bread or warm toast. This Pumpkin Cinnamon Flavored Butter is as simple as mixing together rich butter, pumpkin puree and a dash of ground cinnamon. I love this on both sweet and savory breads, cakes and muffins.

Cranberry Orange Butter

Next up are cranberries. My Cranberry Orange Flavored Butter is gorgeous. Imagine soft butter spiked with fresh citrus flavor. You’ll definitely want to use this tangy cranberry spread on my signature Traditional Irish Scones…and lots of it! I can’t really think of an easier way to celebrate one of the seasons most-beloved flavor combinations. On top of tasting incredible, this Flavored Butter is so pretty and adds a splash of color to whatever you spread it on.

Vanilla Honey Butter

Last but not least is Honey! You won’t believe how simple it is to make your own Vanilla Honey Flavored Butter. All you have to do is combine a few ingredients to make this super thick, sweet butter. Vanilla Honey Flavored Butter adds so much depth and flavor to my Best Ever Buttermilk Biscuits or even Yogurt.

All three of these Homemade Flavored Butters are so simple yet have so much flavor. I can’t wait for you to try these recipes and experiment with making your own fun, flavored Butters.

Again, please help feed the pollinators that help feed us. Visit FeedABee.com to learn more and use #FeedABee to spread awareness.

Ingredients

  • Homemade Butter
  • Follow my recipe for How to Make Homemade Butter or you can use store bought butter to make the flavors below.
  • Vanilla Honey Butter
  • 1/2 cup (4oz/115g) butter
  • 1/4 cup (1oz/28g) powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup (21/2oz/71g) honey
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pumpkin Cinnamon Butter
  • 1/2 cup (4oz/115g) butter
  • 1/4 cup (1oz/28g) powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup (21/2oz/71g)pumpkin puree
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Cranberry Orange Butter
  • 1/2 cup (4oz/115g) butter
  • 1/4 cup (1oz/28g) powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup (21/2oz/71g) cranberry sauce
  • 2 teaspoons of orange zest
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Combine all of the ingredients for the flavored butter you're making in a bowl. You can mix by hand or you can use an electric hand mixer or food processor. Note that it blends together better if you use a food processor as sometimes it can separate when you mix by hand. If it does separate so not worry, it is still perfect to eat.
  • Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Also these butters freeze well if you roll them in parchment paper.
  • Serve on my Buttermilk Biscuits or my traditional Irish Scones.

Do you have a video on how to make apple butter at all? If not how would I go about making it in general. TIA Gemma!

In your video on making butter you said you use hvy cream, but in the ingredients it states 1/2 cup butter and you don’t mention the cold water. So, I’m confused on how to make butter. How much hvy cream and how much cold water?

This is cool my recipes for Vanilla Honey butter and Cranberry Orange butter are almost exactly the same. I’ve been making them for 15 years (along with many other flavored butters!)
I have a Pumpkin Cinnamon butter that I serve with my pumpkin scones is close but not as close as the first two butters.
I think it is amazing that 2 chefs from different parts of the world can come up with almost the exact recipes. I’m in the states but my family emmigrate from Ireland.
I was on YouTube and your video randomly popped up.

Heavy whipping cream with a blender will work? Can I just add salt for a regular tasting butter?
