Butter Recipes

Best served at room temperature, butter adds an irresistible flavour to any meal with very little effort. Nothing beats butter melted on toast or spread on fresh bread but it’s also great on other foods too like vegetables and potatoes.
And butter is great to cook and bake with. Below are just a few of the many delicious recipes available where butter adds real flavour and quality to food.

Irish Butter Scones


  • 3 cups white flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
  • 1 cup raisins or other dried fruit
  • egg wash, to brush scones

Preparation and Cooking
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In large bowl sift together flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Add softened butter and sugar, mix well. Stir in milk or buttermilk. Also stir in raisins or other dried fruit. Press dough onto a floured surface and roll out gently to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut scones into round shapes or triangles. Brush scones with egg wash for shine.

Bread and Butter Pudding

Pudding Ingredients

  • 8/10 slices of white bread
  • 4oz melted butter
  • 4oz of sultanas

Custard Ingredients

  • 2 pints of milk
  • 8 eggs
  • 8oz sugar
  • 3/4 capful vanilla essence

Preparation and Cooking
Bring the milk to the boil in a saucepan on the cooker. Whisk together the eggs, sugar and the vanilla essence. Add the boiled milk into the egg and sugar mix whisking quickly all the time.

Serve with ice cream or fresh cream.
