My daughter, Mel, and niece, Mandy, are both amazing cooks.  So, when either of them calls or stops over with a new recipe that they have tried and loved, I’m always excited to test it in my own kitchen.

The other night it was Mel’s turn to entice me into making a new recipe she’d found for cinnamon-honey butter.  She said it was absolutely delicious on top of the banana bread she’d made.  If that wasn’t enough to make my stomach growl-she just HAD to send photo’s from her phone!

 So of course I told her to email me the recipe-and headed to my kitchen to make a couple of loaves of my own banana bread.

Later I opened the email Mel sent with the link to the recipe! ( You can find it here!)  Imagine my surprise, when I saw the ‘special butter’ was the very same yummy butter that I’d recently eaten (and LOVED), at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant!!!!

I’ll admit, I’ve only been to the Texas Roadhouse once, but I’ll never forget that delicious butter they served with their bread basket before our meal was served!  Hubby and I liked it so much, we asked for seconds!  Unfortunately, after we ate all that bread, we were too stuffed to eat all of our meal!!! 

Let me tell you- this butter may have been yummy on the variety of breads and rolls served at the restaurant -but it is OUT OF THIS WORLD scrumptious- on banana bread!!! 

I can’t wait to try it on some of my  Pumpkin Raisin Bread!

Here is what you’ll need for the banana bread:

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
2-3 ripe bananas (mashed)
Nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream sugar and shortening in a large mixing bowl.  Add eggs and milk.  Beat well.  Add flour, soda and salt.  Stir.  Fold in bananas.  Place in two small loaf pans or one large.  Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
