Pecan Butter

Tired of peanut butter? Why not try this crunchy pecan butter! It is fantastic spread on pancakes, crepes or muffins.


  • 1 cup butter, soften

  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup pecan nuts, finely chopped


  • 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 brown sugar and blend until well combined. Then fold in the pecan nuts.

  • 4.

    Let mixture stand for an hour to allow the flavours 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.
