Cinnamon Rolls (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
B: Whisk together: ¾ cup milk at room temperature, ¼ cup oil.
C: Mix together well: 1 cup potato starch, 1 cup cornstarch, ½ cup garbanzo bean flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 2 teaspoons xanthan gum.
Grease an 8 X 8 square baking pan.
With an electric mixer mix B & C together. Then add A and mix. Beat on high for 4 minutes. Sprinkle the counter top with rice flour, pour the batter onto the counter top, sprinkle with rice flour, and roll into a 13 X 13 square. Spread softened margarine over the top of the rolled batter. Sprinkle on sugar and cinnamon to your liking. Roll up the batter carefully. Cut 1 ½ long slices. Place them into the pan. Let rise in a warm place until doubled OR cover pan with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until the next morning. LETTING THESE ROLLS RISE IS VERY IMPORTANT.
Preheat the oven 375 degrees. If rolls are refrigerated, let them come to a warmer temperature before preheating the oven. Brush the rolls with melted butter or margarine. Bake 20 minutes and test with a cake tester. The tester must come out clean. Cook longer if needed. While cooking, if the rolls begin to brown too quickly, cover with foil.
Glaze - mix together: ¾ cup of powdered sugar, 1 ½ tablespoons milk, 2 drops of vanilla extract (Adjust the ingredients to your liking - more milk, less milk, etc., but thicker is usually better).
