Homemade Honey Butter In A Food Processor

Homemade Butter

Have you made butter? Don’t worry — you won’t need an antique butter churn or even a cow, although if you had one or both it would be swell. You can make butter in a quart jar, a ideal for toning your arms. Or, you can grab your handy dandy food processor and have creamy butter in minutes.

Follow the easy tutorial below and don’t forget to pin the photo for easy reference! If you’d like a printed recipe for your kitchen files, please scroll to the bottom of the post. And don’t forget to slather, friends. Homemade honey butter slathered on … just about anything … is perfection.

Homemade Honey Butter In Your Food Processor | Farmgirl Follies


Homemade Honey Butter


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons honey optional
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon optional
  • You will also need a food processor cheesecloth, bowl and sieve.


  • Pour two cups of cream into a food processor. Process continuously until butter separates from the whey — five to six minutes or so.
  • The cream will begin to thicken and about 30 seconds later, chunks of creamy butter will appear. The liquid whey will remain in the bottom of the bowl of your food processor.
  • Line the sieve with a piece of cheesecloth and place sieve over a bowl.
  • Pour the butter and whey into the cheesecloth-lined sieve.
  • Using a butter paddle or wooden spoon, work butter into the sieve. This squeezes the remaining whey liquids from the butter.
  • The result is about 1/2 pound or approximately two sticks.
  • Add up to two tablespoons of honey and work with a butter paddle or wooden spoon until combined. Add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the bowl. Again, work with a butter paddle until cinnamon is thoroughly incorporated into the honey butter. Enjoy this recipe from FarmgirlFollies.com
