WELL SHIT. WHAT IN THE HELL IS BETTER THAN STRAWBERRY BUTTER?
I mean, crack sauce is a close second but that’s a different post.
Strawberry butter is MAGIC! And the best part? It’s just exactly what it says it is: STRAWBERRY BUTTER. LIKE strawberries + butter.
Now perhaps you’re a strawberry fan or maybe you’re even a huge butter lover- the point is there are people out there who have not thought of the concept TOGETHER. And that’s the TSC trick here, ok?
I went out to brunch with Gaby of What’s Gaby Cooking & we stuffed our faces with French Toast…on top of the French Toast? BLUEBERRY BUTTER! I nearly died. We talked about it for 10 minutes straight. Since you know I love an aesthetic more than my future first-born, I wanted to re-think how I could make it pink. POMEGRANATE SEEDS ! CHERRIES ! STRAWBERRIES ! GET CREATIVE.
I used strawberries because there’s something about strawberries & butter that just feels…so…right. It reminds me of picking strawberries in the fields back in the 1950’s & bringing them back to grandma’s house. I feel like grandma would for sure make jam…or maybe even add them to dinner. Sigh. I love nostalgia. I mean sure I’m not from the 1950’s but a girl can dream.
Ok now to the recipe!! My favorite part. This ‘recipe’ is admittedly VERY VERY VERY FUCKING EASY. But that’s neither here nor there because we love easy on The Skinny Confidential, right? Kkkkk AHEM:
PINK TSC STRAWBERRY BUTTER
+ Unsalted or salted butter ( I prefer KerryGold )
+ Handful of strawberries
+ A few drops of maple syrup
+ A little lemon
+ Directions: whip that shit up in a mixer- I feel like there’s many ways to mix it. Just do what works for you here.
Now for the fun part!! I love a fun part, don’t you?
The fun part is you can add strawberry butter to waffles, two ingredient pancakes, sourdough toast, skinny GG French toast, oatmeal- the sky’s the limit here! Keep any other suggestions coming below. Load me up.
Whatever the case- you really can’t go wrong. When I have kids I feel like they will be begging me for strawberry butter. It will be a thing in our house.
Maybe I’ll add a twist & switch to mixed berry? Or maybe even a boysenberry butter. You could even heat the butter up so it’s all warm. Can you imagine? YUM. My mouth is water.
Anyway ! I put this post up on a Friday because it’s so fitting for everyone on the planet to wake up tomorrow & whip up a batch of pancakes with a side of strawberry butter.
Let me know how you’re planning on incorporating this gem into your own recipes- would love to know.
I am off to RELAX- it’s been a week! The LIVE Podcast was a REAL hit but I can fully be transparent here & say I need to veg out in bed with a good book, watermelon gummies, & my boobies ( get your mind out of the gutter- I call my chihuahuas my boobies ).
Peace, love, & strawberry butter.
Have the best weekend ever, lauryn x
