Whipped Cinnamon Butter

I love when we go out to eat a restaurant that serves hot rolls with sweet butter. There’s nothing quite like that first bite when the sweetness of the butter meets the soft texture of the roll in your mouth – YUM. This Homemade Whipped Cinnamon Butter recipe allows you easily make your own and it’s the perfect spread. It doesn’t matter whether or not you pair it with homemade bread, it’s just so good.

Keeping some whipped butter in the fridge is such a treat. It’s great to have on hand for dinners and really elevates a meal – makes it feel extra special. Savory or sweet, whipped butters are easy to make. This Cinnamon Whipped Butter is the sweet side!

It melts in your mouth and it’s perfect to spread over bread. I always prefer homemade bread, but making butter for store-bought bread takes it to the next level. Or consider grabbing some bread from your local bakery. Whatever you decide to spread the butter over, you’re going to love it.

How To Make Homemade Whipped Cinnamon Butter

The only kitchen tools you’ll need is a medium mixing bowl and an electric hand mixer. If you don’t own a hand mixer, a stand mixer would work too. Mixing by hand will not give you the fluffy whipped texture you want.

What To Serve With Whipped Cinnamon Butter

The possibilities are endless! Since the butter lasts for several weeks in the fridge, some nights we enjoy it on homemade bread (when I have the time) and other nights we just spread it over store-bought frozen rolls. Either way we love it.

My No Knead Yeast Rolls are the best match – they’re light and fluffy. Make the dough in a blender and forget kneading. Another fabulous idea is to roast some sweet potatoes and let the butter melt with the heat of the steam. Oh it’s heavenly!

How To Store Compound Butters For Freshness

This Cinnamon Butter will last 14 days in the refrigerator. It’s best to store it in an airtight food storage container. The whipped texture will remain even after it is refrigerated. Give it a good stir, if you think it’s needed. I portion a small amount out, in a serving dish, for dinners and keep the rest of the butter in the refrigerator.

Can You Freeze This Butter?

Freezing changes the texture and consistency. Since it’s so easy to make a new batch, I just start fresh. I do not recommend freezing the Cinnamon Butter.

Recipe Substitutions

Feel free to alter the amount of honey and powdered sugar to taste. Start slow if you know you don’t like things too sweet. I have a sweet tooth and make the recipe as is. I never think it’s overpowering.

Lastly, I recommend using sweet cream butter vs. unsalted. I’ll even opt for a more expensive Irish Butter, because it has a great flavor. Sweet cream butter gives you the texture and flavor you want (I use unsalted butter for baking).
