We Love Cinnamon Honey Butter

I don’t know about you, but I have always been a fan of Texas Roadhouse’s cinnamon honey butter. In fact, whenever I would eat there, I would always ask for some to take home with me. Well, when you have to pay an arm and a leg for a small smidgen of butter, you wonder how hard it is to just make it yourself. And, that’s what I did! I made a delicious cinnamon honey butter that I can have any night of the week!

Be sure to check out the end of this post to see how I package the cinnamon honey butter for gifting!!

What is Cinnamon Honey Butter?

Cinnamon honey butter is a delectable sweet butter that kind of gives you the Hawaiian Roll taste only so much better! It was created in 1942 by a man named James Downey. When honey and butter met, it was a masterpiece in the making. 

It’s made with only 4-ingredients and can be spread on almost anything from bread and pancakes to sweet potatoes and butternut squash. If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love that this butter is actually good for you. Both cinnamon and honey give you a powerful dose of antioxidants, and it definitely sweetens up anything you spread it on.

What Is In Honey Butter?

The best thing about this cinnamon honey butter is that you won’t need a ton of ingredients to whip it up. In fact, you only need 4 main ingredients!

  • Honey– I prefer to use Clover Honey. And, I would suggest using pure honey instead of raw honey for a sweeter flavor. If you are able to get local honey, that’s even better!
  • Cinnamon– I like to use Roasted Ground Cinnamon, it intensifies the cinnamon flavor but you can use any cinnamon you find in the seasonings section at your local grocery store. 
  • Powdered sugar– You may have other sugar lying around, but you won’t get the same consistency and texture of honey butter if you don’t use powdered sugar. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more or less powdered sugar.
  • Butter– Obviously, you can’t have honey butter without butter! I prefer to use salted butter, the salt acts as a preservative and prolongs the shelf life of the butter, but you can use unsalted as well! The better quality the butter, the better your cinnamon honey butter will turn out. Make sure you are using real butter and not margarine. You can use vegan butter (Earth’s Balance) to make it dairy-free and vegan if you need.

How to Make Cinnamon Honey Butter

This isn’t your average homemade butter. This butter is something you’ll want on the table for every meal! Follow the steps below for a truly sweet and delicious spread. 

Mix Ingredients: Add all of your ingredients to a mixing bowl and blend with an electric mixer for about 5-7 minutes. 

Squeeze into jars: Using a spoon or spatula, add your butter to an airtight container. For entertaining or gifting add the butter to a large pastry bag, cut off the tip and squeeze it into half-pint jars. 

Store in the refrigerator: Place the lid on your jars and store your honey butter in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature before serving.

How Long Does Honey Butter Last?

Honey butter can last 3 days to 2 months depending on how you store it. If you store it at room temperature, be sure to use salted butter (the salt acts as a preservative and prolongs the shelf life of the butter) and consume it within 3 days. However, if you store it in the refrigerator, it should last up to one month. Additionally, you could also store it in an airtight container in the freezer for 2 months. 

Keep in mind that if you store it in the fridge or freezer, you will need to let it come to room temperature before using it.

Can I Microwave the Butter?

No! Do not microwave your honey butter because it will become a soupy mess. Additionally, the ingredients will separate so you won’t have the same yummy spread you once did.
