Gluten Free Batter Buns

Recipe by LDSMom128

This recipe is in a cookbook that my Mother In-Law's LDS Relief Society had created for a fundraiser that she gave to me for Christmas about 8 years ago. I decided to try using Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free All Purpouse baking flour in the recipe for a gluten free way and they turned out great, coming out resembling a wheat roll. When I made them, I didn't have time to allow them to rise, so they came out pretty small. The batter will be like muffin batter. I used an ice cream scoop to pour them into the muffin pan. This will make 12 rolls.

I just made this recipe using my own gluten free mix: 4 parts rice flour, 2 parts potato starch, 1 part tapioca starch. Wow! They are wonderful! I probably used a little less than 1/2 cup honey. Not sweet at all, just a nice dinner roll that looks more like a muffin. Nice golden color. Nice flavor! Will be making these a lot! Thanks for a great recipe!!!
