A quick and easy recipe for homemade pumpkin butter. Tastes amazing on toast, waffles, pancakes, crepes, french toast, or swirled into cheesecake, ice cream, or brownies!


  • 14 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (I prefer dark)
  • 34 tablespoons maple syrup (I suggest 100% pure)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch salt


  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a pot on the stove top, bring to a low simmer. Simmer until thick, about 20-25 minutes, stirring often. Adjust spices and sweeteners as desired. If it gets too thick, just add a little more apple cider. Let cool completely and store in fridge.


  • Recipe is easily doubled using the large can of pumpkin puree.
