This is great for any holiday table or for a special treat. You don’t really need a recipe for this, but it’s wonderful. Some people say this is the perfect balance of sweetness with butter. Not too sweet, just right.
Just mix 1/3 cup honey and 1/2 cup softened real butter. Then mix in the zest of one orange. Don’t use dried orange peel because it won’t give the real orange flavor. Scrub the orange with a bit of dish soap first, rinse well, and dry before grating the peel.
Orange honey butter adds a great orange flavor to rolls, toasted bagels, pancakes, pumpkin bread, waffles, French toast, toasted English muffins, biscuits, cornbread, toast, or even popcorn. It’s super easy to make and the result is definitely much better than just offering butter or honey.
From the reviews:
“I made this recipe using a butter substitute, and let me tell you, using a substitute does NOT work. Use real butter. What I used couldn’t absorb the honey and ended up looking like a little buttery mess swallowed in a whole lot of honey. I will try it again using real butter.”
” I softened my butter by nuking it 5 seconds on each side in a small mixing bowl. Then I whipped it and added the honey (wildflower) and a little bit of cinnamon. Thank you very much!”

This adds some sunshine to any day. And if you use honey made locally it helps with allergies. Enjoy!
