Texas Roadhouse Cinnamon Butter recipe notes
You can use this simple cinnamon butter recipe for many different things.
I’ve been making this copycat recipe for quite a while now and I’m always finding new ways to use it.
Spread it on English muffins, bagels, muffins, quick bread, toast, and rolls.
If you’re looking for a few more ideas, try it on this cinnamon swirl French toast or on your favorite pancake recipe.
Or, add some to mashed sweet potatoes. You won’t believe how good it tastes that way.
This recipe uses both powdered sugar and honey. If you want to, you can use a bit less powdered sugar and a bit more honey.
I think the combination I use gives a perfect consistency. But, you can experiment until you have the taste you like best.
It’s very important that you soften the butter first. If you don’t, the ingredients won’t blend properly.
Also, be sure to buy the highest quality cinnamon that you can afford. That will make a big difference in the taste of this recipe.
Does Texas Roadhouse use real butter or margarine?
According to sources that know, Texas Roadhouse uses half margarine and half butter in their cinnamon butter recipe.
I’ve used all real butter in this recipe because I like the taste best this way. But, if you want to keep it authentic, you can use half and half as well.

Frequently asked questions
Does homemade butter have to be refrigerated?
Yes, to prevent butter from turning rancid, you should store it in a refrigerator. This is especially true in warmer climates. It’s okay to leave it out for a couple of hours, though.
How can I store this recipe?
This cinnamon butter disappears in just a few days at my house. But, if you want to store it for longer, you certainly can.
It will keep at room temperature for a day, or in the refrigerator for 30 days. Or, you can freeze it for up to 6 months in a tightly covered container.
What type of cinnamon should I use?
Any ground cinnamon should work well in this recipe. Saigon cinnamon has a peppery flavor, while Ceylon cinnamon is the traditional variety used in most recipes.
Should I use salted or unsalted butter?
Use salted butter in this recipe. If you use unsalted butter, be sure to add a dash of salt.
How can I make it spreadable?
If you keep it on the counter at room temperature, it should spread nicely when you need it.
However, after storing it in a refrigerator, you may need to allow it to come to room temperature again before it will spread.
Whatever you do, do not soften butter in a microwave. The ingredients will separate and it won’t taste right.
