Maple Butter

Maple Butter recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Maple butter is heaven on earth when it is slathered on warm bread fresh from the oven. I've loved honey butter for years (who doesn't love honey and butter blended together?!) and I almost always have some in my refrigerator. Lately, I've been taken with maple butter as well. The method is quite simple and the result is beyond delicious.

I have one tip for you before I share the method. Keep your maple butter in a container with a metal hinge or lid or something... that way, when you suddenly crave more of this along with yet another slice of bread, you will have to wait while it softens on the counter. It's hard to quickly microwave butter cold from the refrigerator if there is metal on the jar. I'm all about indulgences, but I try to space mine more than a few minutes apart. The one and only time I made this and kept it on the counter, the butter and an entire loaf of bread was gone in just a matter of hours. (That was with only 3 adults in the house.) Now my sweetened butters all live in the fridge!

Maple Butter
Yield: 1 1/2 cups
(printable recipe)

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup real maple syrup

Place both ingredients in a large mixing bowl and beat with a mixer until fluffy. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

  6. Mmmm...I love sweetened butter. When we were at Disney one of the restaurants had honey butter and I couldn't stop eating it. So, I understand your idea about the metal lid - ha! The maple butter combo sounds wonderful - it would be like having pancakes:-)

  15. This maybe a stupid question, but how long can this last in the fridge? Well...assuming it lasts long enough to even ASK this question...hehe! ;)

    1. It should last for a few weeks at least. I've never actually had butter go bad in the fridge, so I don't know why this would be any different. I hope that helps!
