Recipe Tweak - Take 2 - LW Easy Dairy-Free Dinner Rolls

In my previous post, I tweaked the recipe, and they came out fine, but I am suspicious of the xanthan gum.  I fed the bread to my daughter for the past few days and her legs broke out with quite a rash.  I had her eczema relatively under control, so it was a surprise.  It could also be a latent reaction to her last round of antibiotics, but xathan gum is going on my "suspect list".

So, I tweaked the dinner roll recipe, again, this time omitting xanthan gum.  I also substituted applesauce for the oil, because I read some recipes that omit xanthan gum fare better with fruit purees in them.  I also, completely by mistake, left out the tablespoon of sugar, but it didn't seem to hurt the recipe much.  Here is the second tweaked recipe:

  • 1 "egg" (using Ener-G egg substitute)
  • 1 1/2 T. rice milk, warm to the touch
  • 1/2 c. rice milk + 2 tsp. rice vinegar (substituting for yogurt, with a substitute for buttermilk)
  • 1/8 c. applesauce (2 T.)
  • 1/2 tsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 c. King Arthur Flour Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour*
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder (corn-free, if needed)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F
  2. In a small cup or bowl, place 1/2 c. of rice milk and 2 tsp. rice vinegar, let sit
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the "egg", warm rice milk, "buttermilk" mixture, and applesauce, mix until well combined
  4. In a stand mixer (if you have one), mix GF flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar, and salt (I used the paddle attachment)
  5. With the mixer on low speed, add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients.
  6. Using a cookie scoop, place mounds on a lined/greased cookie sheet
  7. Bake for 40 minutes
*KAF GF MPF Ingredients: rice flour, tapioca starch, potato starch, whole grain brown rice flour --Risk of flax seed cross-contamination

I baked them for about 35 minutes, but I think they could have used another 5 minutes.  They were definitely different than the first batch and I was not sure if they'd work out, but I think they came out OK.  They did not rise as much, of course, but I was able to make a little sandwich for my daughter's lunch.  Here are a couple of pictures:
