Homemade Orange Honey Butter | I’m Lovin’ It


This lightly sweetened whipped orange honey butter is wonderful served as a spread for quick bread, muffins, waffles, or pancakes.

Orange Honey Butter recipe at

A few weeks ago we made pancakes for breakfast and I whipped up a batch of orange honey butter when I realized I had never shared this lightly sweetened whipped butter here on the blog yet!  This smooth and creamy sweet butter is a must if you are serving rolls for Easter dinner, and makes a great spread for quick breads, scones  and muffins for a Mother’s Day or Easter brunch.  It’s equally delicious on pancakes and waffles any day of the year!

What’s great about this recipe is, it can be whipped in less than 5 minutes, or you can make it a few days ahead.  If you really want to make it special, spread the butter on a long sheet of plastic wrap and roll up into a log, chill or freeze and cut off 1/2 inch disks of the flavored butter as needed.

    I absolutely love compound butters but never make them…and they are so easy. I need to change that!
