This easy Cinnamon Butter recipe goes on EVERYTHING! Buns, muffins, banana bread, your morning toast, and more. A Texas Roadhouse copycat that you won’t be able to live without!
This recipe has been a looooong time coming.
I’ve been making this Cinnamon Butter on repeat for months now, and we’ve been putting it on all kinds things.
Although this is the closest thing to the famous and totally addictive Texas Roadhouse Cinnamon Butter, it’s actually not inspired by it.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve indulged in my share of warm Texas Roadhouse rolls slathered in cinnamon honey butter over the years when I get down South. But this recipe came about when I realized that the cinnamon spread my mom used to buy us for our toast was no longer sold at the grocery store.
I’ll be honest — I was a little distraught.
I had a serious craving that wasn’t going to just go away, so my only option was to figure out how to make it at home.
Since that day I haven’t stopped making it, and I often will bake more breads and muffins just so I don’t resort to eating it with a spoon.
How do you make Cinnamon Butter?
There are only 5 ingredients that make up this easy and delicious spread: Butter, honey, powdered sugar, cinnamon and salt.
I have tried making cinnamon honey butter without the powdered sugar, and I could just never get the taste and texture quite right like that. So for me, a little powdered sugar makes this recipe just perfect, though if you prefer you could try adding additional honey in place of the powdered sugar or you can skip it completely, but I think this way is the best way.
Tips for storing this Cinnamon Butter:
You can store cinnamon butter on the counter at room temperature for up to 1-2 days. If you use hard margarine (don’t judge!) you might be able to store it even longer, but at that point I really like to refrigerate to extend the life of it (since, believe it or not, I don’t eat the whole jar with a spoon the day I make it 😉 ).
2 sticks of butter, at room temperature
1 c. powdered sugar
1 c. honey
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
How to make it :
Whip the butter so it’s nice and creamy.
This is where the room temperature part makes things easier)
Add the powdered sugar and mix it all in. Then add the honey and the cinnamon. Then whip it. Whip it good. (“Ba da ba da da. Crack that whip!”) Scrape the sides and whip it a little more.
Store the heavenly concoction in the fridge or leave it out at room temperature. It’s going to spread much easier at room temperature, but it’s up to you! Serve on rolls, toast, bagels, sweet potatoes, etc. Enjoy! And good luck not eating all of it!
