Instructions
  1. Combine yeast, sugar, flours, xanthan gum, gelatin powder, onion flakes, salt and soy lecithin in a small mixer bowl. Add warm water, oil, eggs, and vinegar to the flour mixture. Beat dough with electric mixer on high (using regular beaters, not dough hook) for 2 minutes. The dough will be soft and sticky.



    Transfer dough to eight English muffin rings (or aluminum foil rings) on baking sheet. Rings and sheet should be coated with cooking spray first.



    Cover with aluminum foil and let rise in warm place for 30 minutes or until desired height.



    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake 15-20 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Cool 5 minutes, then remove buns from rings. Lightly toasting the cut side of bun before serving produces a crispy texture.



    Makes 8 hamburger buns.

    what purpose does soy lecithin granules serve in this recipe?
    and

      Hi Muriel,
      Soy Lecithin is used in bakery items to keep the dough from sticking, and to improve its ability to rise. It produces a tender texture in baked goods‚especially in whole grain breads. It also extends the shelf life of homemade breads. You can omit this ingredient if you don’t have it available, although doing so may slightly alter the texture of your bread. If you omit the lecithin altogether, we suggest replacing it with an additional 1/4 teaspoon of vegetable oil.

      Hi Diane,
      Gluten Free baked goods like these hamburger buns will still call for yeast as yeast helps with texture, structure, and flavor and is not dependent on gluten to work in a recipe. We have many recipes for gluten free yeast breads that you can search for through our Recipe Finder.

      Hi Leng,
      We haven’t tried this substitution, but it should work although it may change the texture of the buns a bit as our Gluten Free All Purpose Flour contains heavier flours (like bean flours) as well and the ingredients you are replacing are for lighter, starchier flours.

    I used Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 and the buns were great! My only issue with recipe was I made eight buns that were more the size of slider buns than regular size hamburger buns. Next time I will simple double the recipe. It is definitely a keeper. Thanks so much!
