To make the spiced butter you will need 250 g butter, 250 g brown sugar,1 teaspoon allspice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, a pinch of ground clove and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Mix all together well to combine. Wrap in clingfilm and keep in the fridge until needed. This will keep for two weeks in the fridge.
