Whipped Honey Butter Ingredients
*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.
Butter: You can use unsalted butter or salted butter to make honey butter. I prefer salted butter because the salt enhances the flavor and sweetness of the added honey. Make sure that your butter is softened to room temperature. You will need 1/2 cup or 1 stick of butter.
Honey: I always use raw local honey for my whipped honey butter because it is the most natural and has a light, sweet taste that comes through in every bite.
Vanilla Extract: Adding vanilla extract gives this homemade whipped honey butter an even more robust flavor. I like to use a good quality pure vanilla extract for maximum flavor.
