Light and Fluffy Gluten Free rolls
2 tablespoons active dry yeast 2 cups warm water 1/3 cup oil (I use olive) 1/4 cup sugar (I use honey) 1 egg 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons xanthan gum 3 1/3 cups King Arthurs gluten free flour
(OR to make your own gluten free flour blend 1 1/4 cups white rice flour 1 cup brown rice flour 3/4 cup potato starch 1/3 cup tapioca starch)
In the bowl of a mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar and let sit for about 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, adding the xanthan gum last. . Mix using the dough hook of an electric mixer. Mix for about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl a few times. You do not knead this like a regular bread dough, but it does need mixed well and I have found about 5 minutes is a good time. Scoop onto a greased cookie sheet. The dough is a wet dough, so I found that using a large ice cream scoop works best for this. This makes 12-15 rolls. Cover rolls loosely with a kitchen towel and let rise for about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours. Bake at 425 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until done. Enjoy!
These are really great rolls!! I even tried to make a loaf of bread with this recipe just put it in the bread pan instead. I cooked it at 350 for 60 minutes. It turned out pretty good. I may lower the heat a little next time because the outside cooked too fast and the inside was a tiny bit too doughy. But, overall I love this bread recipe!
Let me know if you try it!
