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

Recipe from the Tasting Table Test Kitchen

Yield: 1¼ cups

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: N/A

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.
