Notes and variationsEdit

  • Brandy butter can be kept for several weeks if made with fresh butter and stored covered in the fridge.
  • Brandy butter is a 'hard sauce', meaning it contains alcohol. Other, rather similar hard sauces can be made by substituting the brandy with rum, whiskey, or sherry.
  • Some people like to add a few more ingredients. Here is a list of some of the options you could try:
    • A dash of vanilla extract
    • Orange or lemon zest
    • Spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, or allspice
    • a small handful of flaked nuts
