This maple flavoured butter is fantastic on banana bread and muffins. It is so simple to make you will wonder why you haven't made it earlier! This butter keeps well in the fridge for about a month.


  • 1 cup butter, soften

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup


  • 1.

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

  • 2.

    Lightly cream the softened butter by hand (a wooden spoon or fork works best), or beat it with an electric beater.

  • 3.

    Add the maple syrup and stir until fully combined.

  • 4.

    Let mixture stand for an hour for the maple flavour to infuse.

  • 5.

    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.

  • 6.

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

Been having maple butter for years and years on pancakes , piklets and scones, but a find that if I add a couple of drops of lemon or lime juice it tastes even better
