Christmas is just around the corner and this recipe is a firm family favourite of ours. For as long as I can remember, we would have champagne breakfast on Christmas morning with warm toasted muffins, topped with melted cinnamon butter.
It’s such a quick and easy recipe that I guarantee the whole family will love!
You only need 3 ingredients (not counting the muffins) – yes you heard that right! Just 3! You really can’t mess it up even if cooking isn’t your strong point!
I tend to use granulated sugar in the recipe because I love the crunchy texture it gives, but you can use any kind, if you prefer a darker/molasses flavour – you can use brown sugar. If you prefer a finer and smoother texture then use caster sugar.
Cinnamon Butter Recipe
250g Butter (I use salted but unsalted if fine)
3/4 cups Sugar
2 Tbsp Cinnamon
- Cream the butter – I use my KitchenAid for quickness, but this can be done by hand.
- 2.Add in the sugar and blend together until well combined.
- Add in the cinnamon and mix again until fully combined, making sure there are not lumps.
I transfer my butter to a Kilner jar and refrigerate until needed. The butter can be frozen and will last a few days.
My favourite way to eat this butter is with toasted muffins. I will also pop them into the microwave or oven to make sure the butter is fully melted for a gorgeous caramelised taste. You can also use it on plain toast, pancakes and even waffles!
