Raisin Honey Butter

My three-year-old niece visited us recently and I thought it would be nice to have fresh cinnamon raisin toast for breakfast.  As I didn't want to get up four hours before breakfast, I set the timer on my bread machine to finish the bread just before breakfast.  Perfect.... Except I wouldn't be awake to add the raisins at the right time. {And not everyone in my household actually likes raisins....}

Next best thing?  Cinnamon Bread with Raisin Honey Butter!  So I baked my Cinnamon Bread in my bread machine while we were sleeping, and whipped up a batch of this tasty butter while it cooled:

Raisin Honey Butter


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup raisins


Mix butter and honey together in a bowl.

Add the vanilla and cinnamon and mix until smooth.  Add the raisins and mix until incorporated (just until the raisins begin to break up - much longer and they will become puree!).

Spoon into a bowl and it is ready to serve!

I thought this was a great addition to cinnamon bread.  {I used the leftovers in oatmeal chocolate chip raisin cookies - yum!}  Simple to make (the ingredients are the title of the recipe!), this butter added just the right flavor to our breakfast.
