Cinnamon Rolls

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Tis the holiday season and so it is time for me to start making cinnamon rolls as gifts for friends and neighbors. Last year I made them gluten free for the first time and they tasted amazing. My only problem was that the filling fell out the bottom as they cooked. Anybody have a good idea to keep the filling in while they bake so you don't have to scoop it out of the pan and put it on top after? I want them to look just like Cinnabon rolls, because they taste just as good! Thanks!

I'm not sure what filling you mean? There should only be a thin layer of melted butter/sugar/cinnamon (and nuts if you use them) between the layers of dough. Frosting goes on after they've come out of the oven. What is it that's "falling out"?

I've had something similar happen a time or two (even BEFORE having to make them gluten free!) and have found that if after I cut the rolls - and at the risk of looking like I am babbling are you first: rolling out in a large sheet, spreading some butter, sprinkling with cinnamon & sugar, rolling up, than slicing? If that's the way you are making them... at the point after I cut mine and am setting them into the pan - I pinch the bottoms just a bit. It cups the top side out a bit, but seems to help keep all the gooey goodness IN the roll and not shellacked to the bottom of the pan.

Also - using parchment paper is amazingly helpful. With it - even if the goodness falls... I don't have to scrub caramelized sugar off my pans for days.

Roll Ingredients

2 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup sugar

2/3 cup milk, room temperature (I use 2% lactaid- a lower fat count doesn't hold together as well and this mimics real milk a lot better than soy or other subsitutes)

1 tablespoon yeast

1 egg

1/4 cup canola oil

1 1/2 cup gluten free flour blend (I use Bette Hagman's)

1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Filling Ingredients

1 stick melted butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup chopped nuts- optional (I don't add nuts, haven't tried it with nuts)

Topping

1/4 cup cream cheese (You can use Neufch

Yes its the sugar that is falling out. I will try the pinching to see if that helps. Thanks! Oh, the recipe is below (or above, don't really know when this post is going to go :D ) for those that want it.
