    Great recipe. Being on a low carb diet I would not add the honey. I will try this recipe. For more great low carb recipes try this: mylowcarbquest.com

    when do you add the soy sauce - during browning or at the end with flavor?

    This was posted on FB as dairy free. I'm confused by that as it's made with butter which is made from milk.

    It says great for those who are cutting back on dairy. Butter has virtually no lactose or casein, so many people who avoid most dairy eat butter with no issue.

    I presume you use unsalted butter??

    I just made this to serve with pancakes (the eggs/cream cheese type) and it was really good. I have always loved brown butter, but mixed with the vanilla, soy sauce and honey (I used less then a tsp) made it delicious. The depth of flavor (thanks to umami) brings it to a gourmet levels. The only change (besides the minimal honey) was I used Ponzu Soy Sauce instead of regular soy sauce or tamari. No need for (sugar free) syrup when you have this butter.

    I am a little hesitant about the soy sauce. For those who made it, did you use 1 or 2 tsp?

    I made this with salted butter. :P It seems promising but I would try it again with unsalted butter. otherwise all you taste is salt.
    Not quite the flavor I was going for.

    Hi Jim
    I've tried several times to find the website you were talking about 'mylowcarbquest.com' -- it doesn't seem to be up. Any ideas? many thanks, Astrid

    I just made this for the first time. Was it supposed to be liquid after mixing? Kept the mixer going for 10 min and hoped it would firm up but no luck. It's in the fridge now. I wish the recipe would have called for unsalted butter. Or, maybe I just need to read the comments next time. The flavor is okay, but on the salty side.

    Is this buttercream okay to use on cakes, is it firm enough for decorations?

    Hi Stephanie, the recipe does say unsalted butter. Maybe you missed it ?

    This is AMAZING and I am French from Paris. I added a very tiny, tiny teaspoon of soy as I was pouring the Amber butter in the butter I was whipping. It’s magical. It taste like praline

    I am a little hesitant about the soy sauce. For those who made it, did you use 1 or 2 tsp?

    When do you add the soy sauce and vanilla?
  17. Susan
    just made this, there is absolutely no mention of soy sauce 20 May 2018. icing is a little thin, so we're putting it in the fridge for a bit.

    When do you add the vanilla?

    This was a waste of butter and time. It never looked or tasted anything like it was supposed to.

    Was more a liquid than a fluffy dessert I put in the freezer to firm up and will try it in my bulletproof coffee instead or as a pancake topping.

    Soy sauce???? WHERE??? Does anyone proof-read these comments?
  22. Anna
    This was beautiful I used swerve, cinnamon and vanilla with salted butter and it was the most perfect salted caramelly flavour. I ate it with a spoon ...
