Most people never get to enjoy homemade cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven. A comforting scent warms the home before the doughy, sticky spirals land gooey and hot on your plate. These rolls are the ultimate in luxury breakfast foods, and gluten-free bloggers have been absolutely determined to share in that luxury. They have experimented and photographed and asked for suggestions. Then, triumphant, they have shared their successful recipes with everyone, making the world a sweeter place. Here are some of our favorite suggestions for gluten free cinnamon rolls:
- Steve of I Hate Wheat worked with his mother on her Sweet Roll recipe. They used Jules Shepherd’s All Purpose Flour from Nearly Normal to make their gluten free cinnamon rolls.
- Gluten Free Steve has step by step pictures of his “sure fire, never miss” gluten free cinnamon rolls. They have white rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, baking powder, and xantham gum.
- The Gluten-Free Homemaker modified Roben Ryberg’s recipe (which everyone in the GF blogosphere is raving about) to make healthier gluten free cinnamon rolls (pictured above) for Christmas, and her family didn’t notice. She used sorghum flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and xantham gum. To support Ryberg’s excellent work and find more GF recipes winning rave reviews, buy her cookbook, The Gluten Free Kitchen.
- Jay of The Gluten Free Post reports that if you don’t feel up to making cinnamon rolls entirely by yourself, the folks at Chebe make a mix. It contains tapioca flour and tapioca starch, and you add egg or egg substitute, oil, milk, gluten-free baking powder (optional), and unsweetened applesauce. The glaze is not included, but there is a recipe for it on their site with brown sugar, slivered almonds, and butter.
You can also find gluten-free cinnamon rolls, gluten-free muffins, and other gluten-free treats at bakeries like those listed in the Restaurant Guide. Which gluten free cinnamon rolls are you going to try?
