Gluten-Free Hamburger Buns

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups Baking Free gluten-free all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cup warm milk--110 degrees (I used almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (1 envelope)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted and cooled to room temperature)
  • 2 eggs

Directions

Step 1
Combine warm milk, sugar and yeast in bowl, set aside for about 10 minutes. It will get bubbly.
Step 2
Combine flour, xanthan gum and salt in large stand mixer bowl.
Step 3
With mixer on low, gradually add yeast mixture to flour until it combines.
Step 4
Add butter, eggs and oil. Beat until well mixed, scraping bowl occasionally.
Step 5
Increase speed and beat for about 3 minutes until batter is very smooth.
Step 6
Prepare baking sheet with parchment and 5 English muffin rings. Spray with baking spray or oil.
Step 7
Put a scant 1/2 cup of batter in each ring. Put a little hot water in a cup and stir with spoon. Using the back of the damp spoon, smooth the top of each bun.
Step 8
Loosely cover with greased plastic wrap and a clean kitchen towel. Place in a warm spot and let rise for about 30 minutes . Buns should be above the top of the rings.
Step 9
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove covering and bake about 30 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
Step 10
Let buns rest on baking sheet for a few minutes to cool slightly. As soon as you can handle them, remove the rings. Cool completely on baking racks. Makes 5 hamburger rolls.
