Day 10 – Brandy Butter

Christmas 5 093

Stop, hold on, before you switch off thinking you’re not keen on brandy butter!  I wasn’t either, until I made my own!  Wow what a revelation I can’t believe I’ve been missing out all this time!

Two versions from me, a brandy butter and a Baileys butter too.  Stored in the freezer in individual portions so there’s no waste either.

If you love a good spread of butter on your toast, teacakes or slice of fruit cake then this is definitely right up your street!

Ingredients:

Brandy Butter

125g butter, salted

125g icing sugar

zest of 1/2 orange or 1 clementine

1 tsp vanilla bean paste or seeds scraped from 1/2 pod

3 tbsps of brandy

Baileys Butter

125g butter, salted

125g icing sugar Continue reading
