Brandy Butter

Clare Chambers


This is an old family recipe, which I adore. If there is no Brandy Butter then I don't want to eat any mince pies, Christmas pudding etc

How to Make Brandy Butter


  • 1I would recommend this be made using a hand held mixer. Cream the butter in a bowl really well until smooth and paler in colour. Add the sugar and slosh in the brandy and cream well again.
  • 2If you want to add more brandy then add 1 tbsp of icing sugar at a time (once you've put the brandy in) and beat well until combined.
  • 3The picture for this recipe is brandy butter with Clootie Dumpling, a traditional Scottish pudding. I'll be posting the recipe for Clootie Dumpling in time for Burns night on 25 January.
