The recipe that I followed is called Gluten Free Rolls. But since mine does not look anyway close to a Roll, I am calling it Buns. Doubt there’s a difference…. ha ha ha.
Anyway, let me tell you that these gluten free buns are amazing and you honestly will not be able to tell the difference between a regular bun and a gluten free bun! And it’s super easy to make too, though some of you may not be too keen on the fact that it requires one too many types of flour. But I love bread and can have it 24/7/365. So I did not hesitate for a minute to get the required ingredients and have made these buns twice already. I do hope you too will give it a try 😉.
Recipe from: https://www.glutenfreepalate.com/gluten-free-rolls/
- White rice flour – 142 gm
- Potato starch (not flour) – 76 gm
- Tapioca starch – 56gm
- Millet flour – 60 gm
- Salt – 1 1/2 tsp
- Xanthan gum – 1 tsp
- Instant yeast – 1 pkt
- Sugar – 2tbsp
- Warm water – 1 cup between 95°-110°F
- Egg – 1, room temperature
- Olive oil (or oil of choice) – 2 tbsp
- White vinegar or apple cider vinegar – 1 tsp
- 2 tbsp of melted butter or additional olive oil for brushing the tops
- Add white rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, millet flour, salt, xanthan gum, yeast, and sugar to a large standing mixer mixing bowl. Mix for one minute, or until combined.
- Add the warm water, egg, oil, and vinegar and mix for 2-3 minutes, scrapping down the side of the bowl halfway through.
- Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and scrape the dough from the sides. Using a dough scoop, or a 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop nine dough balls into a 9X9 square baking pan, lined with parchment paper (or well-greased).
- Cover and let rise for 45 minutes. If you’re in a colder environment, you can use the “proof” setting on your oven and rise the rolls in your oven.
- Preheat your oven to 400°F.
- If desired, brush the tops of the rolls with olive oil or melted butter (if you can do dairy) before baking. Bake rolls for 24-26 minutes or until brown on top and the centers are cooked through.
- Remove from the oven and cool before serving. Store in an airtight container for up to three days. Reheat before serving.
