I love having a plan. Plans make me happy. And lists. Lists and plans. One of the great things about this hot buttered rum batter recipe is that you can make up a batch of it in advance (plan!). You can put it in pretty jars and give it as gifts to people you love. You can invite a bunch of people over and serve them a delightful beverage. Or you can store it away and enjoy a warm cup of deliciousness every night yourself. It’s tasty, it’s hot, and it’s alcoholic. Not unlike myself. (KIDDING! I’m room temperature, at best.)

But seriously, this stuff is good.

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

  • 2 ½ cups dark brown sugar
  • 2 cups unsalted butter (room temperature) – you can substitute coconut oil if you like. You know the stuff that is Crisco-like in consistency? That works if you’re trying to be dairy free.
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. cloves
  • 1/8 tsp. cardamom
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract

Cream brown sugar and butter in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Add spices and vanilla extract and continue mix until well combined. Transfer mixture into airtight container for storage.
