I wanted something that tasted like regular dinner rolls. My DH says this is the closest he's had so far.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup brown rice flour
  • 12 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 12 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cup milk
  • 14 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg, beaten until foamy
  • 1 14 cups brown rice flour


  1. Heat milk, water and butter in microwave until butter is mostly melted (do not boil). Meanwhile, combine 3/4 cup of brown rice flour with xanthan gum, sugar, yeast and salt.
  2. Pour warm liquid into flour mixture. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes with a hand mixer.
  3. Add 1/4 cup flour and egg and beat on high 2 minutes. Stir in enough additional flour (1/2 to 1 cup) to make a sticky dough (sticky cookie dough).
  4. Cover & let rise in a warm place 15 minutes or doubled in size. Use a large cookie scoop to drop rolls on a greased cookie sheet. Allow to double in size. For hamburger buns, use a little more dough and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand. Bake 350* 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Brush with butter while hot. Makes 8 dinner rolls or 3 full hamburger buns (6 hamburger bun halves).

These were terrible and a complete waste of good flour! One of my sons said they tasted "toxic." They went straight in the garbage. Thumbs down from all five family members. Every other gluten-free recipe I've tried has been much better than this. I think the problem is that there is too much brown rice flour in this one.
