Burgers for Lunch - Gluten Free Hamburger Bun Recipe

Gluten Free Buns

In a large bowl whisk together to blend

1 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup each ground flax seed, arrowroot flour, sweet rice flour and white rice flour
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1/2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons sugar

In a small bowl mix together and let sit for 5 minutes

1 1/2 teaspoons powdered gelatin
2 tablespoons of hot (potato) water (see below)

Add gelatin water to flour mixture.  Add the egg, olive oil and enough water to make the dough into a pancake like consistency.  

1 egg
2 Tablespoons first cold pressed olive oil
1 cup + warm water or potato water (the leftover water used when boiling potatoes)

Cover with a towel and let the dough rise in a warm place for 1 hour.  Preheat your oven to 400 F with cast iron mini cake pans inside.  After dough has risen to about double the flour will have absorbed a lot of the water.  Add more water until the dough is once again like a pancake batter.

When the oven is hot, take the pans out and grease with olive oil or bacon grease so the crusts won't stick.  Pour about 1/4-1/3 cup of batter into each cup and bake 6-7 minutes until firm, cool on a wire rack while you are getting your toppings ready, or for a more crispy crust flip and bake another 6-7 minutes on the other side.  Cool.
