Cinnamon Butter is smooth, creamy, slightly sweet, and full of cinnamon flavor. It's the perfect condiment for your favorite biscuits, toast, or bagels.
If you've seen some of our recent posts, you may notice an uptick in condiment recipes. We make a ton of our own condiments, salad dressings, and sauces.
This cinnamon butter is no different. It literally takes less than 5 minutes after the butter has softened. So quick and so easy!
How to make cinnamon butter:
Let me say this real quickly. This is not a Texas Roadhouse cinnamon butter copycat recipe.
This is just a homemade recipe and not intended to taste like something served at a large chain. If you're looking for a copycat recipe, this cinnamon butter recipe looks like it might be a good one to try.
Serve the cinnamon butter immediately or store it in a sealed container for up to 3 days. We don't recommend refrigerating the butter, because it will firm back up and won't be spreadable.
Of course, if you decide to pop the butter in the refrigerator it won't hurt it. Just don't microwave it, otherwise it will begin to separate due to the various ingredients.
Tips and Variations for Cinnamon Butter:
- If you'd rather use margarine, that would probably work. It should already be soft since it's oil based instead of dairy based. You could also use half butter and half margarine. There would be no need to microwave it at that point.
- The sea salt in this recipe gives a nice salty sweet touch. However, if you'd prefer to leave the salt out, that's completely fine. Alternatively, feel free to omit the salt and use salted butter instead of unsalted.
- For more of a vanilla flavored butter, increase the vanilla extract to 1 teaspoon.
- For a honey butter flavor, add a tablespoon of honey and add more to taste.
- Serve this butter with biscuits, rolls, bagels, toast, buns, or on crackers.
