Whipped Honey Butter

If you think all Whipped Honey Butter recipes are the same, they aren’t! This Honey Butter has a secret that makes it so fluffy & light. I’ve been making honey butter for years with only 2 ingredients (honey & butter). After our friends started bringing the best honey butter by every Christmas, I realized theirs was so much better. It didn’t separate. It didn’t get all greasy. It stayed whipped and light and fluffy.

I asked my friend if I could share the secret to her recipe here and she said I could. (Thanks Paige!)

The secret to this delicious Whipped Honey Butter is a little powdered sugar. It stabilizes the honey while also absorbing some of the grease from the butter. It also helps the honey butter get a light, fluffy, and airy consistency that will stay stable. You’ll love this Whipped Honey Butter – it tastes great slathered on my Easy Disney Cornbread. And of course served alongside our Favorite Chili.

Here’s all you’ll need for this recipe:

  • Butter
  • Honey
  • Powdered Sugar

Whipped Honey Butter

If you think all Whipped Honey Butter recipes are the same, they aren't! This Honey Butter recipe comes from a friend, and has a secret that makes it so fluffy & light.
Author Paige Jones & Megan Mullins


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • Whip butter on medium speed in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment for 3-4 minutes until light (can also use a hand mixer).
  • Slowly add in the powdered sugar, turning the mixer to low so the sugar doesn't fly everywhere.
  • Lastly, turn off mixer and pour in honey. Mix on medium speed for 2-3 more minutes until light and smooth.
  • If needed, use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl, the mix one last time.
    Serve with warm cornbread!
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

I hope you love this Honey Butter as much as we do! It’s sure to be a hit at your house, and with this Disney Copycat Cornbread, it makes a great combo. Be sure to tag me @plumstreetcollective if you make this honey butter!
