After being gluten-free for 4 years and really missing out on eating burgers with buns, I experimented with a handful of bread recipes to come up with a good gluten-free, milk-free bun that the whole family enjoys.

  • Dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water in a bowl. Let stand until yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine rice flour, oat flour, tapioca starch, cornstarch, xanthan gum, and salt in a mixing bowl; mix to combine. Add yeast mixture, eggs, and oil; mix using an electric mixer on high speed for 3 minutes.

  • Distribute batter evenly between between eighteen 5-inch pie tins. Place onto 2 large cookie sheets. Sprinkle buns with sesame seeds.

  • Allow to rise in the preheated warm oven, 30 to 40 minutes.

  • Set the oven temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) without removing the buns.

  • Bake in the hot oven for 15 minutes. Switch baking sheets on oven racks and continue to bake until golden, 12 to 15 minutes more.

I rated this a 4, even though I haven't tried it yet, because I have a question: Are the pie tins necessary, or could you just shape the dough into circles on a cookie sheet? If so, would the oven temperature or baking time change? Thank you. I can't wait to try these for my GF husband! Read More

I have made half a recipe twice now, both times using the exact ingredients called for. The first time it didn't work for me at all, but the second time I had success. Let me explain. The first time I followed the directions as written except that when I checked them after the first 15 minutes of baking at 400 degrees, they were already overcooked!! So the next day I followed the way I have usually made yeast rolls: I let the dough rise for about half an hour before I separated them into the mini-pie tins. (The first time I made 9 buns, but they were so small that my hamburger meat would not have fit. The second time I made the half recipe into 6 buns, and they were a great size.) Then I let them rise in the oven with only the oven light on for about half an hour. I then used an egg wash before sprinkling with sesame seeds (so that they would stay on this time). I baked them at 375 degrees for about 17 minutes and they were perfectly done. . The gluten-free part of my family was grateful for their hamburgers with actual yeast buns!! So I am giving this just an OK if you follow the recipe but I'd have given them a 5 if I used my own directions. Read More
