Homemade Honey Butter

Every year I make a homemade treat to give to friends and neighbors. This year I am giving this Creamy Honey Butter and a loaf of homemade bread. I found this recipe on Pinterest. It didn’t have a link to a website. It was just a photo of a jar of this golden butter and the recipe. I gave it a try and it was great! I could seriously drink this stuff with a straw! This butter has the BEST flavor! I always have a jar in the fridge.

How to Make Creamy Honey Butter

This butter is SUPER easy to make with only four simple ingredients. Place butter in a blender. Set aside. In a saucepan, heat sugar, honey, and heavy whipping cream over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for one minute. Remove from heat. Pour the honey mixture into the blender and blend until smooth. Pour the butter into mason jars and store in the refrigerator.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • I use unsalted butter.
    • You can substitute salted butter if you prefer or add a pinch of kosher salt or sea salt to the blender.
    • The butter can be cold, softened, or at room temperature.
  • Feel free to add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or to taste.
    • Another good variation is to add some cinnamon for a cinnamon honey butter recipe.
  • If you don’t have a blender, use a hand mixer, stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or food processor.
  • Storage: Store butter in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

  1. Would the starter travel well? I live in California, but I'll be visiting family in B'ham between Christmas and New Years…but I don't know if it would travel home with me well.

  2. Finally took time today to make this honey butter….it was easy to make and it taste so good….I didn't want to stop! I will diffently make more and share with my family…Thanks for sharing your recipe.. : )

  3. This sounds amazing! I'm making it right now. When you say makes "approx 6 cups", do you mean the recipe makes 6 half pint jars?

    1. Answered my own question. This recipe made 5 cups for me which equaled 10 half pint jars. Thanks so much for the recipe! I can't wait to try it when it cools! Your blog is ah-ma-zing and I've pinned several recipes and actually made a few! 🙂

  4. Your bread recipe is the same one I use. I usually make three loaves of bread (8-in pans) from one recipe. Does this cute pan equal one 8-inch pan? That's the cutest thing I've ever seen. I'm ready to order the pan for next year!

  5. Hi, Stephanie, I would love some starter when you have some. I can meet you anytime!!! Girl, your blog is my fave!! Also, love that you are a fellow Auburn grad!!! WAR EAGLE 😉

  6. Awesomeness! How did you make the bread in the shape of a gingerbread man? Thanks and I enjoy your blog.

  7. I was one of the fortunate recipients of this gift. People, make this honey butter IMMEDIATELY. It's my new crack. 😉

  8. I've been making a recipe similar to this for years. The only difference: an extra stick of butter. We like a little more butter flavor, but I agree with you – this stuff is divine!!!
