Rum Butter

Rather pleased with this year's effort, so for future reference

aprox

1.5oz demerara sugar
1.5oz icing sugar
2oz vanilla castor sugar
2oz butter
large glug (2 tbspn) rum
1 teaspoon mixed spice

soften butter, bung everything else in, whisk well until all incorporated.

The rum will probably separate out a bit, in which case just stir back in. Cover with clingfilm and keep in the fridge until needed.

Ideal with Christmas pud or mince pies,.

I normally make brandy butter a la Delia. Not got any Brandy this year but loads of DS Quantreau so I was going to use that. Will halve the sugar and see how we go. Thought it might be rather good!

It isn't something we have in our house, but when a friend was coming to ours one year and insisted on rum butter, I just added a big glug of rum to the butter and mixed, didn't realise there was a proper recipe for it Laughing

You live and learn!

Well my recipe is only proper in that that's what I just made and it tastes good. I've never tried it with spices in before. It works though.

Sounds proper to me Smile More proper than adding some rum to butter anyway Wink

I've just sat down after making the brandy butter (and licking the spoon clean...)

Made it, and apparently it's the "wrong type of sweet" but "it will do" well I rather like it!!

Here we go again. I knew it was worth writing it down, I forgot I'd put brown sugar in.

I'm always looking up what I posted to see what I did. Downsizer is a sort of external memory bank for me.

Less cloud storage, more fog storage.

Less foggy than the inside of my head. Especially today.

ETA I appear to be stuck in Jamandas timeturner!

On your mince pies? No. Fine on pudding.
