Honey Cinnamon Butter..Gift from the Kitchen


We have a local cafe that serves honey butter with scones, biscuits, bagels, or toast and it is delicious. The recipe is a secret!  I have not managed to get that exact flavor but this stuff tastes pretty amazing anyway. It's perfect for gift giving. A basket of fresh scones and a jar of this delicious butter will make someone very happy!
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup honey 
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Whip butter till pale in color.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and whip a few more minutes until light and fluffy.
  3. Spoon into small jars. Add fabric and ribbon for gift giving.
  4. Keep refrigerated. Serve at room temperature.
  5. Yields: 4 small jam jars.

  1. This looks great - a question though. Is icing sugar the same as powdered sugar? If not, where do I find icing sugar? Thanks - love your blog.

    2. Icing sugar is what it is called in Canada, it is the same as powdered sugar.

  2. Flavoured butter, I always wanted to make some, but never got around to it. Maybe now!

    To the person above: It is the same.

    A tip from me for everyone who avoids refined sugar:
    You can through raw sugar into a food processor to powder it! Improves the texture of cakes baked with brown sugar greatly
    Blessings, Lisa

  7. Hi - this looks so good! Do you use white creamed honey or liquid honey? Or does it matter? Just needed some clarification. Thanks so much.
