although trying to maintain a lower carbohydrate diet, sometimes a breakfast treat has to be available. fruit butters add so much flavor and glamour to any breakfast bread selection. these two butters are simply made with favorite jam flavors. i used 1 tablespoon of red raspberry jam with one-quarter stick of softened margarine. for the other one, i used 1 tablespoon of orange marmalade mixed with the same portion of margarine.
most recipes use freshly mashed fruit for the butters, and of course “real” butter. i think using lower fat margarine works just as well and the taste from the jam is wonderful.
try this easy way to brighten up your breakfast table, as these can be served with muffins, scones, croissants or even toast.
