Orange Honey Butter

I certainly hope you guys don't think I'm insulting your intelligence. I'm sure you loyal readers are super savvy. I stress this because I know you guys can probably figure out how to mix together honey and butter to make, well, honey butter. I mostly just wanted to post this so I could tell you guys about this flavor combination and tell you to make these super delicious ginger cakes from Roost. The little spiced cakes are perfect for this colder weather and are perfectly paired with the sweet/salty/citrus-y honey butter.

Orange Honey Butter
Makes about 1 cup

1 cup salted butter, at room temperature (do yourself a favor and use Irish butter)
1/4 cup honey (I used orange blossom honey)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest

Place all ingredients in a bowl and blend with an electric mixer (or in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment) until everything is completely blended together. Spoon into jars and keep in the refrigerator. Serve at room temperature.
