Delicious on the Pumpkin  Bread !!

This flavored butter is made with a simple mixer by adding brown sugar and honey. Use it on pumpkin bread, cranberry bread or any other sweet breads.

Now I'm going to make for you whipped honey butter that we can put on our pumpkin bread. And it's delicious. When it comes right out of the oven, you can spread the butter right on your bread. I have a whip attachment on my mixer, and I have a chilled bowl. At home I would use one stick of butter instead of a pound because it would take you a whole year to go through this at home.

So let's take a pound of butter and throw it right into my mixer. I'm going to lock it, and I'm going to stir this up. And we're just going to kind of soften the butter and whip it. And you can throw this right on high as soon as we start whipping the butter. OK, to get it nice and soft and fluffy.

We're going to scrape down so that all the air goes into the butter and we get a nice, fluffy butter. We're going to take a 1/2 a cup of brown sugar and add that in. And then we're going to take some honey -- and I like to buy the honey at the farm stand. You can get different types of honey. Down in Florida, I have orange honey, which is a delicious honey to add to your breads.

So we're just going to add by eye approximately 2 tablespoons of honey to this butter. There we go. And this is going to make it beautifully sweet. Now we're going to scrape down one more time, and then we're going to let it go. This would last a long time in a restaurant, and I suggest that you cut down the recipe to make at home. And I'm going to plate it up for you.

A nice way of doing this is a pastry bag, but we're not going to be that fancy. So you can take that and put it right in a glass dish. So you can take a nice piece of pumpkin bread with your whipped butter and brown sugar and honey and spread some of that right on there. Delicious. This is delicious served with a cup of tea, a cappuccino, espresso, or just a cup of coffee in the afternoon or in the morning. We cut it right in half and serve that to your guests, and you'll love it. Enjoy. Thank you.
