Whipped molasses butter is a great treat on warm bread and biscuits. Try it on steamed vegetables too, or baked squash or sweet potatoes.

Do you have stories of growing up eating bread and molasses? 

After I shared this recipe for whipped molasses butter I received all sorts of messages from readers…

“When I was a little girl  …. many years ago … In Québec, often our désert was a buttered slice of bread with molasse spreaded all over.  I still love it and I never lost my love for molasse. Molasse was really part of our diet.  It was an every day staple. I love your recipes. Thanks, Colette “

“Just love this. I grew up in the 50’s with my dear Mom who just adored bread & molasses. Such a classic… Dianne”

Molasses butter is often served with warm bread at restaurants in Atlantic Canada and in New England. If you come across it at a restaurant please let me know. We love to spread the word about this simple treat.

    Today, we stopped today for lunch at the Henley House Pub & Restaurant in Sheet Harbour, Nova Scotia. My seafood chowder was served with fresh made biscuits and molasses butter. I live in Nova Scotia and have never tasted such a thing before. The next time we are asked to bring food to a gathering, we will be bringing biscuits and molasses butter. Its awesome stuff….. Great seafood chowder and fish & chips too.
