Another from "The Gluten-Free Kitchen", by Roben Ryberg. This is our favorite 'roll' so far.
- 4 tablespoons shortening
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 eggs
- 1 packet yeast (about 1 T)
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1⁄2 cup potato starch
- 1 cup cornstarch

- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 teaspoon vinegar
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Combine all ingredients.
- Mix well to remove all lumps.
- The dough will be quite wet.
- Wet hands to handle dough.
- (Re-wet hands as needed.) Take about 1/4 cup of dough and shape into a ball.
- Drop into greased baking tin.
- (I use muffin or popover tins.).
- Repeat until all dough is used.
- Bake 18-20 minutes, until toothpick inserted in middle tests clean.
- (Maybe it's my oven, but mine bake in 14 minutes.).
these are the best rolls ever! they were super easy and were delicious! i use them for sandwich rolls, hamburger rolls, breakfast rolls, etc. if you want the rolls to be for a sandwich, wet your hands and form the dough into a flat disk.let the dough sit out for about a 1/2 hour, it will rise slightly so you can use them for sandwiches. i like to freeze mine so that they stay fresh longer
These are really good. I made them to freeze for Thanksgiving for my daughter who is gluten intolerant but had to sample. I agree with Wendy1872 that they are a cross between a popover and biscuit. I made just as the recipe stated. Since Pot. starch is hard to find for me, I might try substituting something else like rice flour or just more corn starch as other reviewers suggested. I baked mine in Yorkshire pudding tins as I wanted them so she could make a turkey sandwich with. I think they will be good for that with cream cheese, cranberries and turkey. I know my daughter will love them, thank goodness we found something. Now on to more GF recipes since I have about 10 different flours and starches in my kitchen now. We plan on a Thanksgiving GF bake fest so she has things to take back.
Our whole family of 5 LOVES these rolls, and only one of us needs to avoid gluten. I have made a couple of alterations that make these even more like popovers: I use butter instead of shortening; I omit yeast (the baking soda and powder do the trick and the flavor is cleaner this way). Also, I mix the dry ingredients first, then cut in the butter, then add the wet ingredients at the end. Hmmm ... I am craving these, just thinking of them!
