Honey Butter Syrup

Okay, this may be the easiest recipe I’ve ever posted on here. However, it is so stinking good that I just had to share it with you all. I discovered this in my new favorite cookbook:

Even though it says “new” on the cover, it’s from 1953. I found it at a yard sale this summer for $1. A dollar well spent as I have found SO many good recipes in here. Actually, I was given the BH&G cookbook from the late 1990’s as a wedding gift and have used it heavily as well. Even if I didn’t use the recipes, I would still enjoy just looking through it at all the cute retro pics, like these:

You can definitely tell this is from another era. Note that the Mom in the pictures always has on a dress, apron, and a smile (no pearls though ;)). I think if my husband came home to me dressed like that he would think I’m either (a) trying way too hard to be cute or (b) that I’ve finally lost my mind. Granted, most days I do like my role as homemaker, but I’m far from looking that polished!

Okay, on to the recipe. This wasn’t even listed as a recipe, just a little one paragraph insert underneath of a waffle recipe in the book. My husband actually discovered it and made it the first time. On Sunday mornings he and the kids usually make some sort of scrumptious breakfast, so they made this with waffles and had me guess what was in the recipe. I was totally wrong! I thought for sure it had either maple syrup or corn syrup in it, but it actually doesn’t. As I mentioned in the beginning, it’s ridiculously easy to make.

Honey Butter Syrup

1 cup liquid honey

1/4 cup butter

1/4 tsp cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

Melt all of the ingredients together on the stovetop or in the microwave (my version). Serve warm!

  1. I love old cookbooks too. I’ve got quite a collection of old canning books (sadly most of the recipes aren’t ‘safe’ by todays standards) and I love the illustrations. I even have a pitcher just like yours! Thank you for sharing this old-school recipe

  2. Yum! I’ve been taking a version of this cookbook & using the images & recipes to make embroidered bookmarks/illustrations (don’t worry, it was in very poor condition), but I haven’t come across this recipe. I’ll have to try it, thank you for posting this here & on Creative Me Monday! I might have missed it or not come across it for a very long time!

  3. Mmmm This sounds delicious. This is probably a stupid question but what is liquid honey. I thought all honey was about the same (thick and sticky). I will definitely be making this. I love your blog. I’m your newest follower.
    Would love to see you DIY Home Sweet home.

  4. So glad to see this little recipe! We are true maple syrup lovers, but the price of it has not been in the budget, so we’ve been using plain honey instead, but this will be even better! Thanks! πŸ™‚
