Texas Roadhouse cinnamon butter recipe
A lot of Texas Roadhouse butter recipes around the interweb use powdered sugar in the ingredients and more of it than what Texas Roadhouse uses. Some of the copycat Texas Roadhouse butter recipes I see online would be great over a cinnamon roll or a dessert. Texas Roadhouse cinnamon butter seems to have less sugar than one may want, it's a tease of what's to come. Even this recipe may have a frogs hair too much cinnamon but it's still hella good!
The butter at Roadhouse is served before and during dinner with their fresh made yeast rolls. If you're Texan it's a replacement to chips and salsa we use to judge TexMex joints. Most people go over board on the rolls and cinnamon butter and end up going home with a large doggy bag.
The butter has light hints of cinnamon, honey, and salt. The magic comes from the whipped butter. Every time I devour it I think "oh yeah a hint of cinnamon" just below dessert grade. Less is more with this one.
- 1/4 lb butter stick unsalted , room temperature
- 2 tbs sugar fine or powdered
- 1 tbs honey
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp kosher salt
Set stick of butter on counter.
Add everything except butter to mixing bowl.
Mix everything well until all the dry ingredients are wet.
When butter is room temperature add to mixing bowl.
Whip by hand with whisk or by a machine until fluffy and smooth.
With all the craze over cinnamon butter it should be noted Texas Roadhouse is not a Texas company. To spin it up you can use natural sugar that is typically coarse and has a slight hint of vanilla. Coarse kosher salt adds a nice crunch.
PS I did not steal that butter cup from Texas Roadhouse 😉
