  • Easy

This cranberry butter is a delicious topping for waffles or pancakes not just on Christmas morning, but all year round



  • unsalted butter 125g
  • fresh cranberries 60g
  • orange blossom honey 1 tbsp
  • light muscovado sugar 1 tbsp
  • orange 1, zested and ½ juiced
  • waffles or ready-made buttermilk pancakes warmed to serve


  • Step 1

    Soften the butter by leaving it out until you can press your finger into it and leave an indentation. Meanwhile, put the cranberries, honey, sugar and orange zest and juice in a small pan and cook gently until the cranberries start to burst. Tip into a mini food processor and whizz to a rough purée (or mash), cool completely.

  • Step 2

    Whip the butter with electric beaters, and when it is light and fluffy, whisk in the cooled cranberry mix. Spoon the butter onto a sheet of baking paper and roll it into a log about the diameter of a 10p piece. Chill or freeze.

  • Step 3

    Cut slices to serve on hot waffles or pancakes.
