- Mixing Bowl
Butter: Depending on your dietary needs, you can use either regular butter or vegan butter in this maple butter recipe. The key is to pick one that softens and spreads easily. I used Country Crock Plant-Butter in this recipe.
Maple Syrup or Honey: As someone who aims to minimize animal products in my diet, I opt for maple syrup in this recipe. It gives it a dark, sweet, delicious flavor. I find it delicious on pancakes and toast. If you're not plant-based or don't mind consuming honey - feel free to use honey in place of the maple syrup in this recipe. Honey Butter also pairs well with cornbread and on biscuits.
How to Make This Recipe
To make maple butter, you just need a medium mixing bowl, a spoon for mixing, and a knife for spreading. Here's the simple process:
Allow The Butter To Soften: Set the regular or nondairy butter on the countertop and allow it to soften so it is easy to combine with the maple syrup or honey.
Drizzle The Honey or Maple Syrup: Drizzle the honey or maple syrup over the softened butter.
Mix Until Creamy: Use your spoon or a fork to mix the maple syrup or honey and the butter together until smooth and creamy.
How To Store
