Extracted from the inner bark of a tropical evergreen plant, cinnamon is originally from Sri Lanka. From there, this spice has travelled lands, far and wide and spread across Europe and Asia. The captivating fragrance and distinct taste of cinnamon has been believed to have spruced up several savoury, sweet and snack dishes. The aromatic condiment has featured as cinnamon buns and rolls as well as in our biryanis and curries. 

Today, we want you to upscale yourselves with cinnamon butter. If the spice alone is so powerful, imagine what all could a cinnamon butter do. Here are five cinnamon butter recipes to acknowledge our love for cinnamon! 

1. Pear Cake with Cinnamon Butter Cream Frosting 

A sweet pear cake, covered in a generous amount of butter cream frosting, we are drooling only at the sound of this. 

2. Roasted Chestnuts in Cinnamon Butter 

Roast your chestnuts in a pan and toss them with dollops of cinnamon butter. If you can handle the flavours, you’re a tough nut. 

3. Orange Cinnamon Butter Flake Rolls

These rolls are filled with the cinnamon butter filling and there’s a slight hint of orange zest, taking the simple rhode rolls a notch higher. 

4. Baked Sweet Potatoes with Chili and Cinnamon Butter

In the mood for a barbeque? Don’t let that cinnamon butter just sit there in your fridge. Bake some sweet potatoes and brush them in chili and butter for a yummy taste. 

5. Salmon Poached in Cinnamon Butter and Cedar-Planked Porcini 

Lightly-grilled salmon submerged in a skillet full of cinnamon butter, that’s what we like. 

Oh wait, first make some cinnamon butter buddy!
