Texas Roadhouse Rolls – Copycat Recipe [adapted from: Good Stuff Maynard]

  • 4 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1/2 c. warm water
  • 2 c. milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
  • 3 Tbl. of melted butter, slightly cooled
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 quarts all purpose flour (7-8 cups)
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 tsp. salt

Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar; let stand until frothy. Combine yeast mixture, milk, 1/2 cup sugar and enough flour to make a medium batter (about the consistency of pancake batter). Beat thoroughly. Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well. Add enough flour to form a soft dough. Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto counter and let dough rest. Meanwhile, grease a large bowl. Knead dough until smooth and satiny and put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top. (I used the dough hook on my Kitchen-Aid to knead this for about 4-5 minutes). Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk. Punch down. Turn out onto a floured board. Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes. Shape dough into desired forms. Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Baste immediately with butter. Yield: 5 to 6 dozen. Serve with Cinnamon Honey Butter.

And now for the Cinnamon Honey Butter


  • 1 stick unsalted butter – room temperature
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey, add more to taste
  • 1 tsp cinnamon, add more to taste

I started making this in a bowl with a spatula and hand mixing the ingredients. I quickly poured everything into our KitchenAid Mixer. The KitchenAid mixer made quick work of mixing everything together. I started with the tablespoon of honey and teaspoon of cinnamon and added a bit more to taste. I really like the flavor of cinnamon so I added more than the recipe asked for.
