So I took a recipe for gluten-free danish and played with it, and came up with comething pretty darned close to cinnamon buns, in flavor and texture, if not apperance. Here's the recipe:

2 Tbsp shortening
1/3 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 tsp cider vinegar
1/2 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/3 cup potato starch
1/3 cup arrowroot starch
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1/4 cup gluten-free Pantry pizza mix
cinnamon to taste

Mix, no lumps, bake at 350 about 20-23 mins. I put it into a casserole baking dish, if you were ambitious you could turn it into rolls, but it seemed like too much effort to me, the dough is very squishy. Less baking time if it's separated into rolls. I also took a tbsp of honey and a tbsp of water, heated it, and poured it over the top, it made it sticky and just a bit crispy on top, super tasty!

Next time I'm going to add more cinnamon and swirl in finely diced walnuts. I also intend to add more yogurt and use a double recipe as a cobbler topping for peach cobbler. I think it would work with applesauce instead of yogurt too, for dairy free. I realize the flour mixture is rather odd, I was trying to use up little bits of leftover stuff. I'll be trying it with a more straightforward mix sometime. I'll update, I'm kinda sick with a head cold right now so won't be eating anything sugary anytime soon.

These aren't so gooey-soft, they're more like springy cake, but they sure TASTE like cinnamon buns. I didn't put icing all over them.
