Butter is a rich source of several vitamins — especially fat-soluble ones.
The following vitamins are found in high amounts in butter:
Vitamin A. It’s the most abundant vitamin in butter. One tablespoon (14 grams) provides about 11% of the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) (2Trusted Source).
Vitamin D. Butter is a good source of vitamin D.
Vitamin E. A powerful antioxidant, vitamin E is often found in fatty foods.
Vitamin B12. Also called cobalamin, vitamin B12 is only found in foods of animal or bacterial origin, such as eggs, meat, dairy products, and fermented food.
Vitamin K2. A form of vitamin K, this vitamin — also called menaquinone — may protect against heart disease and osteoporosis (13Trusted Source, 14Trusted Source, 15Trusted Source).
However, butter doesn't contribute much to your total daily intake of these vitamins because you usually consume it in small amounts.
I got this information at the link below and there is a lot more information about butter on the page:

Dr Google says: "Butter is full of fat soluble vitamins, including vitamins A, E, D and K. And as their name implies, fat-soluble vitamins need fat in order to be absorbed and assimilated. Vitamin K, specifically K2 is a less well known vitamin, but has very powerful effects on health."
