Sweeten your butter with honey to spread on freshly made pancakes, crepe and scones. A great alternative to maple syrup.


  • 1 cup butter

  • 1/4 cup runny honey

  • 1/4 cup icing sugar, sifted


  • 1.

    Soften the butter by leaving it out of the fridge and bringing it to room temperature.

  • 2.

    Cream the softened butter and honey with an electric beater. Then add the sugar and blend until pale and fluffy.

  • 3.

    Let mixture stand for an hour to infuse the flavours.

  • 4.

    Pile the butter into cling film or waxed paper, shape into a sausage and roll the film around the sausage, twist both ends and refrigerate until firm.

  • 5.

    Just before serving, cut butter into disks, remove film from discs and place atop warm food at the last minute and let it melt.
