This is a quick overview of the ingredients you’ll need for this Cinnamon Honey Butter Recipe. Specific measurements and full recipe instructions are in the printable recipe card below.
- Softened Butter – we’re starting with store bought butter to keep this extra easy, you can use salted or unsalted. If I use unsalted I like to add in a pinch of sea salt to balance the flavors
- Honey – this helps add sweetness and gives the perfect honey flavor
- Powdered sugar – this helps thicken the butter and adds a little extra sweetness
- Ground Cinnamon – gives the butter a nice spiced flavor
How to make Cinnamon Honey Butter?
Add the butter to a large mixing bowl and beat it with a hand mixer (or use a stand mixer) until it is soft and creamy.
Add the honey, powdered sugar, and cinnamon to the bowl and beat them until combined, another couple of minutes. Make sure to scrape the bottom of sides of the bowl occasionally as it mixes.
Turn up the mixer speed and beat until the butter is creamy and has your desired consistency.
Serve on top of your favorite rolls, toast, etc.
Tips and Tricks:
- Let your butter soften to room temperature to ensure that it mixes up smooth into your honey butter.
- This is one recipe where I actually find it easier to mix in a large bowl with an electric mixer, not a stand mixer. because the small amount is harder for my big mixer to mix.
- Try adding pure maple syrup instead of honey for a different, but delicious flavor.
When to use Cinnamon Honey Butter?
- Breakfast foods – pancakes, french toast, waffles, toast, etc.
- Bread – there are so many bread options, homemade bread, rolls, biscuits, cornbread, English muffins, etc.
- Sweet Breads – Banana bread, blueberry muffins
- Baked Sweet Potatoes or Butternut Squash
How to store?
This cinnamon honey butter can last in a covered airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. It can also stay at room temperature for up to 3 days, which will keep it a more spreadable temperature.
It gets a little stiff in the cold fridge, like regular butter, so you can whip it up a bit with a fork, and I recommend letting it sit at room temperature for a few minutes before using.
This homemade cinnamon honey butter is one of my favorite things to put on warm rolls, or toast. It’s made with simple ingredients, and comes together in just a few minutes. The delicious warm cinnamon flavor with a touch of honey, is the perfect addition to this sweet butter.

curious if one could use the soft spread butter or even margarine>
I think it should work with either. The taste will be a little different, but if that is the taste you prefer then I think it should be fine 🙂
