Sweet Tea Buns - Gluten Free

sweet tea buns batter

Does not roll out like traditional dough. Will need to "press" it out. Use this recipe for all those favorite sweet breads you miss. Can be used with some modifications for several different recipes like Cinnamon Buns, Butterhorns, Raspberry Tea Ring, and more.

From the new edition of Our Gluten Free Favorites Cookbook

3 cups Gluten Free Flour Mix
1 tsp Egg Replacer (Enger-G or OrgraN)
1/4 cup raw sugar (or maple syrup or agave nector or omit)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp xanthan gum
1 Tbsp active dry yeast
1/3 cup melted margarine (or oil, but not as good)
1/2 cup hot water
3/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla

Combine dry ingredients. Combine wet ingredients and stir into dry. Mix 3 minutes on med high with electric mixer, should be a very thick mashed potato batter like consistency (adjust flour as needed - see picture above).

For Buns like cinnamon, sticky or other: Layout a piece of parchment paper (or plastic wrap) onto counter. Lightly sprinkle GF flour over top. Drop dough onto parchment and lightly flour. Press dough until it forms a rectangle about 9 x 16. Use as little flour as possible - these should be VERY soft.

Use as directed in recipes such as Cinnamon Buns, etc.
