When I first looked for gluten-free recipes, I zeroed in on bread. What I found was mind-boggling. There were soooo many gluten-free bread recipes and each of them had their own flour blends. Plus, everywhere I read told me that gluten-free baking, especially bread baking, was a bit on the touchy side. I was almost afraid to try anything. But try I did, and I ended up feeding the garbage can more than the family.
I was really getting frustrated until I found Lisa, author of The Super Allergy Cookbook. She had a bread recipe that she claimed was easy. It was supposed to be versatile enough to make buns, rolls, bread, etc. I thought it sounded too good to be true. But, I didn’t have anything to lose. . .I decided to try the dinner rolls first.
The batter was nice, fluffy, and its consistency made me think of buttermilk pancake batter. I was just a teensy bit hopeful. But I’d been down this road before. . .
I poured the batter into a large muffin pan and waited. I didn’t even peek. But when I finally opened the oven I just about fell over. Could it be!?
1 1/2 c. garfava flour
1 T. xanthan gum
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. celtic sea salt
1 T. egg replacer powder
1 c. milk (Lisa uses a milk substitute)
2/3 c. coconut oil (or unsalted butter)
1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in the milk and coconut oil.
2. Slowly add club soda until the dough reaches the consistency of thick cake batter.
3. Spoon the batter into a large, zippered gallon size bag that has about 1/4″ of it’s corner cut off.
4. Squeeze dough into muffin pan.
5. Bake in preheated oven at 350 for about 25 min.Let the rolls cool for a minute or two then place on cooling rack or the bottoms will get too moist.
P.S. If you’re looking for a yeasty, gluten-free bread-loaf recipe that tastes like wheat, look no further. This one is our favorite, hands down.
