Sweet Cream Coffee Butter

Spreads and nut butters are trending right now, they’re part of a healthier lifestyle, one based in homemade, all-natural goods that are slowly replacing store-bought products.

Spreads are fun; they create dozens of opportunities to make a light breakfast of toast and coffee more enjoyable. So, how can we play a part in this spreadable revolution? By creating our own sweet cream coffee butter.

Sweetened, coffee-infused butter. Soft and silky, coating and rich, this will become both your favorite spread and your favorite way of taking your coffee.

Allow me to break the recipe down for you.

To make a spreadable butter, you need oil, which is why we’re fortifying our already fatty butter with a few tablespoons of safflower oil.

If you haven’t heard about this healthy oil, it’s a neutral, flavorless and colorless grain oil similar to sunflower, canola or corn oil. It’s used both in the cosmetic industry and in the kitchen, and it’s very stable.

If you don’t find safflower oil, use any other grain oil.

Then we have the creaminess, which is where the heavy cream and the butter come into play, they’re the most important ingredients in this tasty butter spread.

Finally, we have the sugar, a pinch of salt, and, of course, coffee — choose a high-quality coffee and grind it as fine as possible, it will infuse the butter with the prettiest flavors and aromas.

Spread your new sweet cream coffee butter over toast, pancakes and waffles. It’s also an excellent crepe filling and is quite nice over French toast. With a little creativity, you’ll find plenty more ways of using the coffee butter in desserts and other baked treats.

There’s more. Since this butter keeps very well, it’s a perfect gift for home-warming parties, or close friends and relatives. In a nice jar with a handmade label, this golden-colored butter is a personal detail that shows how much you care.
