These gluten free and dairy free rolls are my all time favorite! Everything about them from texture to taste is perfect thanks to My Gluten Free Kitchen. I’ve been using Michelle’s recipe for several years and it never disappoints! They are delicious with dairy free butter, jam, dipped in soup or stew or gravy, used as a sandwich bun, and I’ve even sliced them and popped them in the toaster for breakfast.
Gluten-Free Pull Apart Dinner Rolls
(One batch recipe makes 9 rolls, if you want to double it you’ll need to also increase the flour by 1/4 – 1/2 cup)
2 3/4 Cups Gluten Free Mama’s Almond Blend Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons of Xanthan Gum
2 teaspoons of SAF Instant Yeast
1/4 Cup Sugar (I have also used coconut sugar but it darkens the color of the rolls)
1 1/2 teaspoon of Salt (I use sea salt & add 1/2 teaspoon to her original 1 teaspoon)
1 Cup of Warm Water
2 Tablespoons of Dairy Free Butter (I use Earth Balance Soy Free)
1 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
In the mixing bowl of your electric mixer, mix together flour, xanthan gum, instant yeast, sugar, and salt. With mixer running on low speed, add in the water, melted butter (or substitute), egg, and cider vinegar. Mix on medium speed 3 minutes. The batter will be very soft.
Spray 8″ or 9″ round cake pan or pie plate with cooking spray. Using a 2″ scoop or 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop dough into 9 mounds in the pan. I place one mound in middle, then scoop 8 mounds of dough side by side all the way around the pan.
Dip your fingertips into warm water and use to smooth out the tops of the rolls, continuing to wet fingers as needed. Cover with a dry towel (I spray a sheet of plastic wrap and lay that lightly over the rolls with a towel on top) and let rise in a warm place 45 minutes to 1 hour.
During the last few minutes that the rolls are rising, preheat oven to 400°. Bake in 400° oven for 26-28 minutes. Tops should be golden brown and if you measure temperature of dough, it should measure 200°. Brush rolls with additional 1/2-1 Tablespoon of melted butter (I omit this step).
