Cooking With Honey – Butterfly Honey Spread


This is a simple yet delicious way to prepare a honey-based spread.  In a pretty jar, it makes a wonderful gift!


1 cup heavy cream

2 cups honey

3 sticks unsalted butter, softened

1 tsp vanilla


In a sauce pan combine cream and honey. Heat on medium-high heat and stir until the honey is melted and completely combined with the cream, about 2-4 minutes.

Pour the hot mixture over the butter and mix until blended, either by hand or machine. Add vanilla and blend again. Pour mixture into a container, cover and let cool in the refrigerator. Keep refrigerated.

Serve on warm bread, toast, oatmeal, pancakes, or anything else!

  1. Looks delicious! How long will it keep in the fridge?

    • It should be okay for up to three months. I’ve never had it around that long though… 🙂
      If you use salted butter it will last longer, but I don’t like the taste as much.

  2. Wow, this sounds amazing, I’ve never heard of it before. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ok, I have to ask. Why BUTTERFLY honey spread? It looks yummy but the name makes me curious. I’m wacky that way.
