This Whipped Butter recipe is simple to make and so delicious on pancakes, biscuits, fresh bread, or the end of a spoon!
Whipped Butter is one of those decadent Fall (or anytime) treats that is so (so, so, so) easy to make but tastes divine. And will seriously impress your guests!
Whipped Butter, Ingredients
Butter – Salted, at room temperature. I find using salted gives it a little extra boost of flavor, even when we’re looking for a sweet end result.
Water – filtered or distilled, room temperature will work best.
Pure maple syrup – This is totally optional!
Ground cinnamon – Also optional.
How Do You Whip Butter?
First, using an electric mixer on high (I use my handheld mixer), start whipping the butter. Slowly pour in water and continue whipping.
Then, when water is entirely incorporated, if you want to flavor the butter, pour in maple syrup and whip until everything is well mixed.
Next, add the cinnamon and continue whipping until everything is well blended.
Finally, store in a covered container.
We love to serve whipped butter with fresh dinner rolls, pumpkin biscuits, or sweet cornbread! It always makes an appearance at the holidays alongside a garlic crusted prime rib, crock pot ham, and roasted turkey.
Try whipping in different flavors too – for savory use garlic, rosemary, or ranch dressing seasoning. For sweet you can experiment with honey, cocoa powder, and peppermint!
