Notes on Optional Ingredients

You can substitute maple syrup for the honey if you wish.

Best Tips For Making Honey Cinnamon Butter

While this recipe is super simple, there are few pointers that will ensure you end up with the best honey cinnamon butter possible.

  • For best results, use a stand mixer or electric mixer. This recipe is not recommended for hand mixing.
  • Use room temperature butter and honey so that they whip together easily.
  • For the best result, use grass fed salted butter. Try to use the best quality butter you can find – you’ll be rewarded with the creamiest whipped butter treat ever!
  • You can replace the honey with maple syrup if you’d prefer.

How To Store Whipped Honey Cinnamon Butter

This delicious sourdough topping will last in the fridge for up to one month or can be frozen for up to six months.

It’s not recommended to store at room temperature, particularly if you live in a warmer climate. If the butter becomes too soft or melts, it’s basically ruined and you can’t whip it back together.

When using from the fridge, allow to soften before serving. If it’s really hard and you want to use it quickly, you can give it a quick whip using hand mixers.
