With just three ingredients, this easy brandy butter is the perfect accompaniment to mince pies and Christmas pudding.


  • 4 ounces/100 g unsalted butter (unsalted)
  • 8 ounces/225 g confectioner's sugar

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Place the butter in a large baking bowl. Beat with an electric hand whisk until light and creamy.

  3. Add the confectioner's sugar and beat again until it's all incorporated.
