Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

Gluten free Cinnabon cinnamon rolls. Let me just say AMAZING.

Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

My mother makes Cinnabon Cinnamon rolls and they are amazing.  I wanted to try and re-create this recipe in a gluten free version for my daughter and I.  I really wasn’t expecting much success out of this because I usually have to tamper with a recipe for a  while before it’s perfect.  These are awesome!

I, of course, didn’t take a lot of pictures during the beginning process because I didn’t think it was going to work out the first time.  So my apologies.

First, combine your milk, 1 TBS butter, and sugar.  Warm just till butter melts (no more than 115 degrees).  Add your yeast and let sit for 5 minutes.

Sift together all your dry ingredients.

In your mixer add your egg, oil, and vanilla.  Pour in your yeast mixture.  Slowly add your dry ingredients and mix on high 2 minutes.

To roll out your dough sandwich it between two VERY WELL floured (tapioca starch) pieces of wax paper.  Take off your top layer of wax paper and smother your stick of butter over your dough.  Sprinkle your brown sugar all over and the nutmeg.

These can be easily altered by switching out the filling.  I have made orange rolls by filling them with orange marmalade, raspberry jam, or Nutella.

Now to roll up your cinnamon rolls.  Start the roll nice and tight and use your wax paper to help roll it all up (this is where your are super glad you floured your wax paper).  Make sure you roll up the short side.  Do not try and roll up the long side because your rolls will be really small and not so thick.  You want thick rolls.

Cut into 8-10 pieces and place in your greased and floured pie pan or cake pan.  Let your rolls raise for about 30 minutes or until doubled.

Cream cheese frosting is the best on these but I was so anxious to try these I just put on some normal buttercream I had laying around (the joys of being a cake baker ;))

As you can see these didn’t last long right out of the oven.  Sorry for no picture with frosting on them but I was so excited to taste these it slipped my mind.  Hehe!
