What is Whipped Butter?
Fluffy whipped flavored butters are a favorite around here (check out this recipe with fresh lemon and vanilla beans), and they’re super easy to make. It’s literally what the name says – regular butter that’s whipped ferociously until it’s light and fluffy – then usually flavored or spiced.
To make whipped butter, simply toss butter into the bowl of a stand mixer, along with a little milk, and let it whip. The butter’s volume is expanded by the milk and air being whipped into it, making the end product super fluffy and easy to spread. The texture is so fun!
For this recipe, I added some pumpkin purée, a little powdered sugar for sweetness, gorgeous vanilla bean seeds, and the spices we all know and love from pumpkin pie. It’s one beautiful little spread!
You can make this whipped pumpkin butter with just a few ingredients, the main one being the salted butter. Add a handful of spices to create that delightful pumpkin spiced butter flavor. See the recipe card for the full list and measurements.
- Milk – Helps create a whipped, smooth texture that’s easily spreadable.
- Salted butter – Softened to room temperature.
- Canned pumpkin purée – Be sure to grab pumpkin purée, not pumpkin pie filling, as we’re adding the spices ourselves.
- Powdered sugar – Makes this butter perfectly sweet!
- Spices – Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice give this spiced butter that classic pumpkin pie flavor.
- Vanilla bean – Scrape the inside seeds from just half of a vanilla bean.
How to Make Whipped Pumpkin Pie Butter
Ready to make your own whipped spiced butter? Here are the few simple steps!
- Bring milk & butter to room temperature. Measure the milk into a cup and allow it to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes. The butter also needs to be at room temperature.
- Beat the milk and butter. Beat the milk and butter on low until it comes together. Then increase the speed to medium-high and beat for an additional 5 minutes, until light and fluffy.
- Add remaining ingredients. Add the remaining ingredients, beat on low to incorporate, and finish by beating on high for 1 more minute.
- Enjoy. Serve with popovers, muffins, pancakes, or however else you choose!
There are so many ways to enjoy this whipped butter.
Serve it with homemade popovers or your favorite breads or muffins. It’s pretty wonderful on pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, pancakes, waffles, and French toast. My family has tested all these combinations extensively. Just trust us; you can’t go wrong with this fluffy spiced butter!
How to Store
Whipped pumpkin butter will always have the lightest, fluffiest texture right after it’s made. But any left over will keep well for a week or so in the fridge. It should be kept in a covered container or scooped out and wrapped in plastic.
Before serving, leave it out on the counter for 20 to 30 minutes so you have the smooth, spreadable texture.
Can You Freeze Whipped Butter?
Yes, this pumpkin pie whipped butter freezes wonderfully. I recommend using a cookie scoop to form portions, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and place in a freezer-safe baggie or container. Or place it on plastic wrap and form it into a log shape, and then freeze it in a freezer-safe baggie or container.
Thaw in the fridge overnight, then set on the counter to bring to room temperature before serving.
