Gluten Free Soft Buns

I’m always on the lookout for interesting gluten free bread recipes, and one I recently ran across caught my attention. If you are looking to make gluten free soft buns, give the following recipe a try and let us know how they turn out!

Gluten Free Soft Buns Recipe

Buns Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups hot tap water
  • 1 packet yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup oil (I used canola)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 cups gluten-free flour blend (mine is a blend of rice flour, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, gelatin)
  • 1/2 cup corn starch

Buns Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 415F.
  2. Sprinkle the yeast over the hot water and stir gently to incorporate.
  3. Add sugar and oil and let stand a few minutes.
  4. In large mixing bowl place the egg and the other ingredients.
  5. Add the yeast mixture and beat until well-blended, approx 1 minute. (Dough should be thick and sticky)
  6. Scoop out 1/4 cup at a time of the dough and with well-greased hands, roll into balls and place on lined cookie sheets.
  7. Place approx 1.5 inches apart and flatten into thick discs.
  8. Set aside in warm place to rise for 15 minutes.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown and the wafting smell of fresh-baked bread causes the insane urge to reach into the hot oven and grab a roll to shove into your drooling mouth.
  10. Let cool 10-15 minutes and serve with butter and your choice of jam/jelly/honey/apple butter, etc.
