Spiced Honey Butter Recipe

Welcome to the land of butter and honey

Spiced honey butter might sound fancy, but it can be whipped up in a hot minute and goes on absolutely everything: pancakes, English muffins, bagels and whatever else your heart desires. Keep this fun little secret weapon in your back pocket or—better yet—made ahead and stashed in your refrigerator.

Pro tip: Spread this butter on a biscuit and add a piece of fried chicken and a couple of spicy pickles to get the most magical combination ever.

Spiced Honey Butter

Spice up whipped butter with allspice and clove, then finish it off with golden ribbons of honey.
Prep Time
Cook Time
Total time: 10 minutes
  • 1 cup room-temperature unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon flake salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ cup honey
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the butter until light and fluffy, 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, except the honey, and continue whipping until everything is fully incorporated.
  2. Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and, using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the honey. You still want to see ribbons of honey in the butter, so don't overmix. Transfer to a small bowl and serve immediately. If making ahead, store in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before serving.
