    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

    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 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 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?

    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.

    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 ...

    This is amazing! I added one tablespoon of powdered peanut butter chocolate and stuck it in the fridge for a little and I was totally amazed.

    I had no problem with the consistency as long as it was in the fridge for a bit.

    Most recipes call for unsalted butter and then add in salt because the amount of salt can vary widely from brand to brand.

    I just made this buttercream and I did not get the fluffy consistency that it says it would be. Does it depend on what type of unsalted butter you use? Thanks

    Butter brand should not matter. I am sorry that yours did not get fluffy.

    I am a senior on a very tight budget, however, I have gone to bulk barn to get only what was required and made the biscuts using the bread recipe and really enjoyed them. I started this programe Nurse Practioner recommended I weighed 168 and a candidate for diabetes I am happy to say I have used a lot of my own commonsense and eat mostly meat,fish and lots of veggies sugested in this program and have lost 10lbs.

    Margarine is made with inflammatory vegetable oils. You can read more about that on our food policy page.

    Hello!

    This seems like a very tempting recipe, but a bit unclear to me. I would appreciate a few clarifications regarding the recipe and method.
    I see one of the comments mentions soy sauce, but I don't see it in the list of ingredients. Was it removed when the recipe was edited?
    Also, instruction no. 2 says to put the browned butter in a beaker and whisk in the rest of the butter. Does that mean that we start by whisking 3/4 of the butter amount first with a mixer, and then we drizzle in the browned butter?

    Thank you for all that you all do!

    Yes, the soy sauce was removed when the recipe was updated. Add the rest of the butter to the browned butter.

    Followed the instructions to the letter - never got fluffy. It was just a waste of really good butter changing it into a disgusting oily mess. Too bad! I was looking for something creamy, fluffy and a little sweet. So disappointing.

    Different brands may have different carb counts. You will want to check the label on your brand.

    Oh I love this recipe! I just had it with the Keto Chocolate Muffin in a mug and I was so satisfied...it really hit the spot! However to get it to whip and get fluffy...I put it over some ice water and kept whisking away until it fluffed and firmed up.
  39. G
    If this turns into "an oily mess" that is because the butter was too hot. Kelly's solution to set in a bowl of ice would work great, or place in refrigerator until partially cooled.

    Hi! How many grams is a serving?

    Hi! How many grams is a serving?

    To determine a single serving size, divide the finished recipe into the number of servings you made. The default for this recipe is 4 servings. If you make the 4 serving recipe, divide the finished dish into 4.
