How to make vegan compound fruit butter. Thick, creamy and full of fruity flavour, compound butter is like butter and jam all mixed into one! Perfect to serve on toast, fresh warm bread or vegan croissants!
This is not a recipe for fruit butter (fruit cooked down and strained into a thick compote (although that is equally as delicious)), but instead, this is a recipe for (vegan) compound butter, which is butter that has been creamed and then has fruit mixed into it, producing a delicious, rich spread for toast or crumpets or muffin bread.
It is incredibly quick and simple to make and is great for brunch get-togethers, or Sunday morning pancake cook-offs.

Easy! Simply beat butter in a bowl until it is fluffy, then add a tablespoon of your favourite preserves or just some fresh berries, beat it a little more until amalgamated, chill for a while, then serve! I like to put my butter on a piece of clingfilm and roll into a log shape before chilling it. It gives it a nice shape and is easy to cut into butter pats when serving. This is entirely optional!
I like to use either Flora Plant Butter or Naturli Butter. Both are available in supermarkets throughout the UK.
