Homemade Vegan Butter that Looks, Feels, and Tastes Like Butter

Homemade Vegan Butter that Looks, Feels, and Tastes Like Butter

Hi, I'm Stef! Welcome to my kitchen, home to over 1000 recipes! Join me on my quest to push baking boundaries and live creatively both in and out of the kitchen.
Happy exploring!

Mattie’s VeganBaking.net post sharing a recipe for homemade vegan butter is exemplary food writing.  It’s original, well thought out, and – most importantly – the recipe works.  The post details the need for homemade vegan butter and every step Mattie took to develop the vegan butter recipe to perfection.

I’m not a vegan.  But, I often bake vegan recipes (they are called out as vegan in my recipe index).  I had never imagined that it was possible to make homemade vegan butter that would look, feel, and taste like butter.  Mattie’s recipe does just that.  I would feel comfortable using this vegan butter in any recipe that called for butter.  In fact, in my next post, you’ll see how the vegan butter fared in the ultimate test – vegan buttercream.

Because I can’t say it better than Mattie, I am not going to share the recipe here (you’ll have to visit VeganBaking.net for the details).  I will only share the one small modification that I made.

When you read through Mattie’s recipe, you’ll see that once you prepare the vegan butter, you need to freeze it in a mold.  Any shape mold will do.  You could use a big tub, do as Maddie did and use extra-large ice cube trays, or even make butter shaped like leaves or snowmen!  I wanted my vegan butter to look like a stick of butter to any unsuspecting omnivore.  So, I purchased a special wooden butter stick mold.  Butter molds are hard to find (I guess there aren’t that many people who care about making butter in the shape of a stick) and as far as I could tell, they only come in wood.

I purchased the butter mold shown above on Ebay and I was thrilled with the quality and craftsmanship of the product.  Once it arrives, you’ll just need a little food-safe mineral oil to season it and it will be all set to go.  Let the butter soften a bit before removing from the mold to make the butter easier to remove.

If you try the vegan butter, I’d love to hear about it in the comments!  Happy vegan baking!

    Did it work in buttercream?

  5. Hi, I recently lunched PurpleDinner.com. A PurpleDinner is a meal enjoyed in someone’s home. Simple as that! This site matches diners and hosts so they can enjoy home-cooked meals in the comfort of personal homes. It would be great to have more vegan hosts and guest. I hope you’ll take a look and sign up if you’re interested!

    I cant wait to try this butter recipe! I have an amazing summer succatash recipe but it calls for heavy cream…I could use coconut cream but I don’t really want a coconut flavor. Heavy cream has a milky/buttery sweet taste to it.

    Any suggestions?

    This looks great! I see that the VeganBaking.net website no longer works. How do I go about getting the recipe?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

      Hmm.. It worked for me. I just checked it. Give it another try.

    • Leigh says:

      I’m having the same trouble as Caili, the website won’t open ‘bad url’ or invalid URL don’t remember which… I really want to try making some butter… (of course I could have tried sooner but didn’t) I hope I’m not out of luck! Would you be willing to share the recipe either on your site or via email? Please and thank you?!

    I’ve tried to see the recipe 10 times but there must be something wrong. Would someone be so kind to email it to me?
