butter and honey

When I was growing up my family almost moved to New Mexico. We took a lot of trips there to look at houses and see the sights. Of all the food we had, the one thing that I remember was sopaipillas and what really sticks out is that they were usually served with honey butter. Most of the recipes that I’ve seen floating around for sopaipillas either dust them with sugar and serve them with honey, but they never mention honey butter! They’re missing the best part!

Sopaipillas are good, but honey butter is great! For one thing, it solves the age old problem of honey on toast. Make a piece of toast, butter it up, drizzle some honey on it, take a bite and all of the honey runs off the toast. Now with honey butter, problem solved. Thank you honey butter!

One last thought, the honey to butter ratio is really flexible, I haven’t made this stuff since I was a kid and I just guessed at a ratio and it tasted great. I think next time I’d probably try a 1-1 ratio.

  1. YUM. So simple, but so good! I’m one of those people who drizzles honey on vanilla ice cream, so this is my kind of thing. Thanks!

  2. This is my favorite thing to serve and eat with pancakes! I like to mix in a little ground cinnamon as well.

  3. I love it! Never thought it’ll be so quick and simple. I’ve had honey butter on baguettes at restaurants before and thought they are great, but never knew it’s so easy to prepare.

  4. My grandmom was also doing that honey-butter mixture, but she was using the kind of honey with comb (I hope I splet it right… you know..the thing that bees build :D) You made me go past :) I miss her…

  5. I just whipped some of this up for toast and it’s awesome!

  6. Yeah its nice how some of the best things are always so simple to make.

    Great pics again btw!

  7. Thanks everyone! I’m glad you enjoyed it.

  8. Honey, butter, and any sort of breaded goodness is often a quick pick-me-up for my taste buds! Although I’ve learned over time to embrace the messiness of honey, I’m glad I saw this. It is so simple! I can’t wait to make a whole load of honey butter to use and save for further use.

  9. I used this as a small treat at the Christmas Dinner my roommates and I had and it was so yummy. It was a pleasant surprise for my taste buds. Thank you!!
