Your pancakes, french toast and waffles won’t be the same after you add your own homemade, easy strawberry butter to spread all over them!
Easy Strawberry Butter
This week we are making Baked French Toast. Today is an easy day with the butter. Tomorrow…. we’re making the Challah Bread (Jewish Egg Bread). So don’t think that you’re getting off too easy here. I’ve been wanting to make some easy strawberry butter for some time now. I’ve had it in fancy restaurants, but never really made it. Maybe that’s because Mr. Quart doesn’t like strawberries, or maybe it’s because I was lazy. Either way, this was a first for me.
Simple Strawberry Butter can be used to sweeten toast, bagels, and french toast.
- 1 Cup Salted Butter, at room temperature
- 1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 1/2 Cup Fresh Strawberries, cut into small pieces.
- Cream butter with a paddle attachment. Add in sugar and strawberries.
- Blend until combined.
- Store in a jar, flatten to cut out shapes, or roll in plastic wrap to make a log.
This was so easy to make and will make your weekend breakfasts a bit more special… especially if you roll your butter flat and let your kids cut out fun shapes for their butter. I picked a simple flower cutter, but any shape works. My daughter picked a mini airplane shape that I have.
You can adjust the sweetness from the sugar, to your taste. I used salted butter instead of adding salt to the recipe. Just have a little taste test while making it.
When I made this, I decided to pulse the strawberries in a food processor. Then I added the butter… This really didn’t work very well. The butter fat and the strawberry juice did NOT “blend” together. I was essentially trying to mix oil and water and that didn’t go over very well. So I transferred it to my mixer and strained off some of the juice. It took some time to get it to blend, but it did. So, learn from me and don’t make this in a food processor.
