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.
