The Most Delicious Orange Butter




I came up with this butter because I had made some cranberry orange bread that wasn't orangey enough for me. I thought orange butter would fix the problem post-baking, and it was delicious! So I decided to make more and came up with this recipe. This recipe is super easy and very flexible as well. I used my Young Living orange essential oil to give it a little something extra special, but you could definitely make it with or without it if you don't have orange oil (or you could use this as an excuse to get some and try it because it smells amazing, tastes amazing, and is just really all-around amazing). I highly recommend it! This butter would make a great Christmas gift along side some cinnamon bread (<--seriously it's so good with this bread. The BEST). There are so many super sugary gifts this time of year that sometimes a low sugar, but still delicious, gift really hits the spot. Or keep it for yourself because you'll definitely want some!

Orange Butter

- 1 stick butter - softened 
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon orange zest (I used a clementine so that works too!)
- 2 drops Young Living orange essential oil

Above is the exact recipe that I made and it's great! But you can definitely switch up the ingredients if needed. If you don't have orange oil, just use more zest. If you don't have zest but you do have orange oil, no problem! You'll just end up with an orange butter that looks like normal butter. And the honey is optional. 

The most important thing about this recipe is that, while making it, your butter should be room temperature, soft but not melted. If the butter is too cold, you'll have lumpy butter and an uneven flavor and will just generally make your life miserable while mixing it. If it's melted, it'll just be weird. Trust me. Don't try to speed things along by heating the butter. It's worth the wait. Just let it sit out on the counter until it's soft.

Once you have all your desired ingredients, just mix everything together with a mixer or a fork and that's it! If you use a fork to mix your butter like I did, you'll find that it's a lot easier to mix if you do a little bit at a time.

Hey, You should create pinnable images with each blog post, not to say that people can't pin the images you have, but if you have a tall image with a bit of text over explaining what it is, people will be more likely to pin it and then click on it once it's on Pinterest, driving more traffic to your site. I'm not trying to tell you how to do your blog, I just wanted to pin some of these recipes and thought it would be even better if they were pinnable images. Happy Blogging!
