Hi Bold Bakers!

WHAT YOU GET: A sweet, simple, and fresh strawberry compound butter recipe bursting with the flavor of sweet strawberries. It’s simple, uses very few ingredients, and is perfect for beginners and experts alike.

If you ever find yourself with a surplus of strawberries (or want an excuse to buy some in the winter months to remind you spring is coming), I highly recommend giving this flavored butter a go. This creamy compound butter enhances everything it touches, from my Irish Scones or my Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes

This simple recipe has only three ingredients — softened butter, strawberries, and a little honey to bring the sweetness together. If you end up not devouring it, it makes a great homemade gift and keeps well in the freezer for the future! If you’re a fan of this, you’ll like my Orange Honey Compound Butter as well! 

Here’s a list of all the compound butter I just released:

Should I Use Salted Or Unsalted Butter For Strawberry Compound Butter?

For flavored butter, it’s best to work with unsalted butter instead of salted butter. Using unsalted butter allows your ingredients, in this case, strawberries, to really shine and not get outdone by an aggressive saltiness.

Can I Bake With Flavored Butter?

You can certainly bake with strawberry compound butter, but it may be a bit difficult to measure. You will also have to adjust your recipe to account for the sweetness in the butter. If you want to use your strawberry butter in a recipe, I highly recommend using it instead of plain butter in a strawberry frosting

Can I Freeze Strawberry Compound Butter?

This flavored butter freezes wonderfully. To freeze butter, I suggest portioning it out before freezing by laying slices on a parchment-lined tray. Allow the butter to freeze and then transport the frozen butter to a covered container.

Tools You Need To Make Strawberry Compound Butter

  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or a handheld mixer
  • Plastic wrap

Gemma’s Pro Chef Tips For Making Strawberry Butter

  • Spread this on my Irish Scones or toast for a delicious treat!
  • Serve this alongside some homemade English muffins to really wow your guests — the recipe is no-knead! 
  • Perfect on Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes or Buttermilk Waffles
  • This butter can be sliced into individual portions before freezing: lay the slices on a parchment-lined tray and let freeze completely before transferring to a covered container.
  • This butter can be whipped with an electric beater to make it fluffy for serving.
