This recipe is adapted from Real Mom Kitchen: http://realmomkitchen.com/8780/texas-roadhouse-rolls-with-cinnamon-honey-butter/ –
2 tsp active dry yeast plus 1 tsp sugar
¼ cup warm water
1.5 cups milk
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
3-4 cups (12-16oz or 340-454g) Better Batter flour
1 tsp salt
Cinnamon Honey Butter:
½ cup butter
½ cup powdered sugar
½ cup honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
Add yeast and 1 tsp sugar to the warm water. Set aside.
Place milk in microwave for 45 seconds. Add butter to milk and stir in until butter is completely melted. Check the temp of the milk, it should be lukewarm, if not then allow to cool until lukewarm.
Once yeast has doubled in volume, add yeast mixture to milk mixture in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the sugar and enough flour (about half) and mix until it reaches the consistency of a muffin batter. Let rest for 30 minutes.
Add egg and salt to the mixture. Beat well. Add enough remaining flour to make flour to form soft dough, about the consistency of playdough, beating on high with a paddle for about 4 minutes.
Press of roll dough on a lightly floured surface. Shape into a long rectangle. Cut the rectangle in half using a pizza cutter and then cut each half into 6 pieces.
Place on greased baking sheets and let rise until doubled.
Bake at 350 F for 10-15 minutes. Until golden brown. Makes 1 dozen.
To make the butter: Beat butter with hand mixer until light and fluffy.
Add remaining ingredients and beat with mixer until well blended. Serve on warm rolls.
