Easy Honey Butter Recipe

It's really simple to make this honey butter! A final drizzle of honey and a sprinkle of salt make it impossible to resist. This recipe makes about ¾ cup. If you want to feed a lot of people, double it.

– One stick of unsalted butter (4 ounces or 8 tablespoons), softened – 3 tablespoons honey – ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon – ⅛ teaspoon fine salt  – For garnish: Drizzle of honey, and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt or kosher salt


Step 1


Put the softened butter, honey, cinnamon, and salt in a 2-cup liquid measuring cup or another small mixing bowl with high sides that won't break.

Step 2

To make the butter light and fluffy, whip the ingredients together with a hand mixer until they are completely combined.

Step 3

Move the mix to a small bowl for serving. Put a little honey on top, and then add a pinch of flaky salt or kosher salt.

Step 4

You can serve it right away or put it in the fridge to enjoy later (let it warm up again before serving). Covered leftovers stay good in the fridge for up to 5 days.
