Mulled Wine Butter

I love flavored butters – even really simple ones. Just the fact that Olive and Oak (a restaurant near my house) serves honey butter with their bread was enough to make me want to return. Discovering years ago that you could infuse tea or coffee flavor into butter and then bake with it was a total “aha” moment for me and I now use the method all of the time.

I had never tried infusing wine into butter, though, and it was time to do so!

Mulled Wine Butter

The mulled wine butter recipe below is fabulous on biscuits, pancakes, waffles, or even morning toast. But, it is also amazing as a substitute for plain butter in baked goods – giving them a noticeable mulled wine flavor.

I make a big batch – six sticks of butter at time – because mulled wine butter is wonderful for holiday gifting. You can scale the recipe down if you’d like just enough for yourself.

One word of warning: If you whip mulled wine butter at room temperature, you may see some separation of the butter and the wine. This is normal. Discard Drink any wine that comes out.

One more word of warning: Use a splatter guard when you mix up the butter. Things will get messy.
