How to make amazing cinnamon honey butter

This Cinnamon Honey Butter recipe was inspired by Texas Roadhouse. I don’t know if you have a Texas Roadhouse restaurant near you or not, but they serve these warm, dense, full of yeasty goodness dinner rolls with the most amazing Honey Butter.

I haven’t yet tried to make their rolls, but I have tried to make their honey butter. The first time I made the honey butter was simply with a combination of butter and honey that I whipped until it was fluffy. But, something was missing.

So, the next time I tried to make honey butter, I added some cinnamon and again whipped the honey, butter, and cinnamon until it was nice and fluffy. It tasted pretty good, but it still wasn’t quite as good as the Texas Roadhouse honey butter. Then, I read a couple of other recipes that added yet another ingredient – powdered sugar.

So, once again, I blended the butter and honey (which I purchased from our local farmers market) in my stand mixer using my whisk attachment, then added the powdered sugar and cinnamon and whisked until it was well blended and fluffy. Of course, I baked some rolls and while the rolls were still hot and fresh-from-the-oven, I slathered on the creamy Cinnamon Honey Butter and wow! It was perfectly amazing and better than the Texas Roadhouse’s!

How to store cinnamon honey butter

It’s perfectly safe to store this at room temperature. Keep it in an airtight container. It will last about 2 days this way.

If you keep it in the refrigerator, it will stay fresh for about a month.

Can You Microwave It?

No, do not microwave it. If you do, the ingredients will separate and the texture will be thrown off.

If you want to soften it, just let it sit at room temperature for a bit.

What to Put it On

This is the fun part! The cinnamon honey butter can go on almost anything. If you put butter on it, you should try it with this cinnamon honey butter.

Here are some ideas:

  1. I just made this last night. It came out very funny and this morning I noticed that the hiney separated over night in the fridge. What went wrong?

    1. Hi Kat,
      Thank you for reaching out to us. We’re so sorry to hear you had trouble with the Cinnamon Honey Butter recipe. I checked with Pam from The Birch Cottage who created this recipe for us. She says she’s never had that happen before. We’re wondering if by chance you used a butter substitute like sticks of margarine? If so, maybe that’s the cause of the separation issue?

      The other possibility is that it may need to be whipped longer. If it’s well blended the honey should haven’t separated in the fridge over night. How does it taste this morning? If you give it a stir is it still usable and delicious?

      Best wishes,
      Carrie

    2. Hi, Kat! I’m really sorry you had unexpected results with this recipe. I’m wondering if you used butter with this recipe? I could imagine this happening if you used margarine or a vegetable spread. The other question that comes to my mind, is did you use melted butter or softened butter? If you use melted butter in this recipe, you can definitely expect some separation. My third question is did you try restirring and blending the honey in the butter and then setting it back in the refrigerator and seeing what kind of results you get after a few hours?

  2. Your Honey Cinnamon Recipe Ingredients
    • 1 cup 2 sticks salted butter, room temperature
    • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
    • 1 cup Honey
    • 2 teaspoons Cinnamon
    Why did you use a whole 1/2 c more powdered sugar and a whole 1/2 c more honey( and an extra teasp of cinnamon which based on the increase of sweet would make sense) than the Texas Roadhouse recipe..? That sounds awfully sweet. I just want to get it right first time I make it. No time to experiment

    1. Hi, Camilla. Thanks for trying to clarify the recipe before you begin! That would be really frustrating to make something new and not have it turn out well. The recipe should be:

      1 cup butter (which is 2 sticks)
      1 cup powdered sugar
      1 cup honey
      2 tsp cinnamon

      It is sweet, but that should give you the right consistency. One thing I can say for sure, is to use “butter” and not margarine or another substitute.

      I hope this helps! Be sure to let us know how the recipe turns out for you!

      Best of luck!
