A couple weeks ago I made some Homemade Honey Oat Bread. Homemade bread as a gift to a neighbor or friend is good enough on it’s own, but this week I wanted to make another loaf and make it extra special by adding a jar of one of my favorite recipes that I grew up with. Homemade Honey Butter.
Funny story- when we were kids, my mom made some honey butter and put it in an old margarine tub. For dinner we had hot fluffy mashed potatoes and gravy. We like butter on our potatoes, so naturally we grabbed the tub of margarine and put it on our potatoes. All us kids were gagging and telling mom that it didn’t taste right. She would not listen and made us eat every bite, the cruel woman! Later she found out what had happened and felt pretty bad but it gave us all a good laugh.
So I’m going to share this amazing honey butter recipe with you, but please be warned, it is highly addictive, may put you into a diabetic coma, and some, some might even be tempted to grab a straw and guzzle it down. I called my mother cruel earlier because of making us eat this stuff with mashed potatoes, but really she is cruel for introducing this delicious concoction to me, it can’t be good for my health. 🙂 What makes things worse, is just how easy this recipe is to make. It’s dangerous I tell you…..you’ll see.
Homemade Honey Butter Recipe:
Delivering a Jar of this stuff would be so great to receive on it’s own, but I loved pairing it with my homemade honey oat bread recipe. I ain’t gonna lie. For this weeks happy thought post, I decided to treat myself instead of deliver it to the intended recipient. I’m sorry, okay?! Woman’s, gotta eat. The hot warm bread that I baked, sliced and steaming hot, needed some homemade honey butter drizzled on it. We gobbled up a whole loaf and a whole jar in one night. Don’t Judge me people! I think eating the bread and honey butter myself was a very happy thought, and it did make me happy…. in the moment anyways.
Although this wasn’t delivered I still created a darling tag for the honey butter. I also made sure it matched the bread tag so that you could pair it and the Honey Oat Bread together. I think it makes a beautiful homemade gift.
