Yesterday I was having one of those days where there is so much to do and too little time, not to mention on very little sleep. My hubby wanted me to make sticky buns, I did but with a few mistakes….. If you can believe it I actually was in the middle of making these when I realised I had NO cinnamon! The mistakes I made didn’t affect the outcome though

These are fluffy and no one could tell they were gluten-free!

Cinnamon Buns

mix and let sit about 10 minutes

1 cup luke-warm milk

1 tsp sugar

1 1/2 tbsp instant yeast

with mixer  beat….

2 tbsp. butter

2 tbsp. oil

1/4 cup sugar

1 egg

2 tsp. vanilla

Add yeast liquid …. mix then add to the following dry ingredients….

1/4 rice flour

1/4 potato starch

1/2 cup tapioca starch

1/2 cup cornstarch

1/4 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp salt

Sticky bun sauce

3/4 cup butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

desired amount of pecans

Mix on low-speed until dry ingredients are moistened then beat on high for a couple of minutes until dough is smooth and elastic.

place wax paper on your counter and sprinkle a good amount of Rice Flour on it… (this is very important!!! I forgot it and it was a disaster! makes the rolling easier!

put dough  on to wax paper (my dough has risen in this photo because I had to wait 30 min for my hubby to come with the cinnamon but didnt seem to make much difference)

pat out to a rectangle with spatuala or wet hands

then add a little bit of melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon and raisins if wanted.

using the wax paper to help roll out the dough (will be very gooey and the flour you add to the wax paper should help, the cut and place on to pie plat (wont look like normal cinnamon buns but wll taste like them)

*if making sticky buns, melt your butter on the stove, add sugar and mix untill looks like a toffee sauce, pour in the bottom of the pan top with pecans (kids can help with this part) then place your buns on top.

Cover with cloth or towelling and let rise for about 40 minutes.

Bake at 375′ for 30 minutes or until tops are nicely browned

These were so good! I made 2 batches of sticky buns and a batch of cinnamon raison buns! you want to make sure to eat them the same day as they get chewy of time.
