Homemade Cinnamon Butter
I’ve already told you about my crazy love for homemade bread.
But what goes best with freshly baked bread? Homemade cinnamon butter. Lightly sweetened and with a touch of vanilla.
This cinnamon butter recipe takes barely 5 minutes to mix up. I recommend making a double batch. As the butter sits in the refrigerator, the flavors will blend together nicely. And if you have kids like I do? This isn’t going to last long. So yeah…make a bunch.
Notes on Making Cinnamon Butter:
- I used salted butter because that is what I keep on hand. If you use unsalted butter, you may want to add a pinch of salt. Oh…and it goes without saying, use 100% real butter!
- These ingredient amounts are just a suggestion. If you like a little more cinnamon or vanilla flavor, add more if you’d like.
- Our favorite cinnamon? Saigon Cinnamon. I buy it in bulk and find it really makes my baked goods taste just a little bit better.
- If you’d like, you can use honey instead of powdered sugar, or even a mixture of the two. Sweeten the butter with your favorite sweetener!
- 1/2 cup salted butter softened
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3-4 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl, adding powdered sugar one tablespoon at a time until it the butter is the sweetness you'd like.
- Mix until the butter is smooth and the ingredients are mixed in very well.
- Store the cinnamon butter in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
