Cinnamon Brown Sugar Butter
I love compound butters! It’s a great way to add flavor to butter and really takes any occasion from ho-hum to outstanding.
This simple recipe for brown sugar cinnamon butter is perfect for the holidays but we make it all year round. It is incredibly delicious with my homemade biscuit recipe and goes great on cornbread too.
I recently made up a batch of sweet potato biscuits and realized this butter was perfect for it!
We frequently have this butter on hand and use it on our baked sweet potatoes. It’s a great way to lightly sweeten the potatoes without going all in with marshmallows ?
How To Make Brown Sugar Cinnamon Butter
- Let your butter come to room temperature. I usually make this with just one stick of butter but if you’re making as gifts, you can absolutely double, triple or even quadruple this recipe.
- Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. You can use a stand mixer if you want but if your butter is nice and soft, it’s just as easy to stir it together with a fork.
- Now it’s time to pop it into the refrigerator. You have a couple options here:
- Wrap it in parchment paper – I like to make a log out of it. Some twine tied around the ends and this compound butter becomes extra festive!
- Place it in small glass canning jar or anything other airtight container. The canning jars also make this butter perfect for a cute gift idea, especially for the holidays.
How To Use This Compound Butter
The sky is the limit but here are some of our favorites ways to use this brown sugar butter:
- Slathered on biscuits or sweet potato biscuits
- As a syrup substitute for our favorite buttermilk pancakes
- Topping for a baked sweet potato
- Served with cornbread
- Goes great with these light and fluffy dinner rolls
- Makes the most amazing cinnamon toast with this homemade cinnamon bread
- Frequently served with my mom’s homemade crescent rolls

First of all, I have to say how fun your blog is to read, Kind of like continuously finding that hidden gift under the Christmas tree. One tempting, inspiring and fun recipe after the other makes me feel all “giddy” inside, must be that “foodie” addiction of mine lol. I’m gonna need an entire category for your site on my Pinterest board 🙂 .
Now to the compound butter. I have never made compound butter, though I have seen recipes or what others have been given or made, just never think to make it myself so thank you for the inspiration. This butter would be perfect for baked sweet potato recipe from Martha Stewart. On a steamy baked sweet potato or yam, add butter, a dollop of sour cream and top with brown sugar. Your compound butter would be the best of both worlds. The sour cream with the brown sugar mixture would be so much better. I might add a tad bit of vanilla to the butter mixture, and it would be fun trying spice such as nutmeg (pinch) or all-spice. We add butter and brown sugar to our bowls of oatmeal and cooked cream of wheat s this would be perfect as well. Thank you so mch for your passion and effort you put into thi blog.
