Easiest Gluten-Free Buns

goop

These are simple, hassle-free gluten-free buns, which call for just a handful of ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

makes about 5 buns

for dough

3 cups gluten-free flour mix (Thomas Keller’s Cup4Cup brand is our favorite)

1 1/2 cups milk

1 packet (2 and 1/4 tablespoons) dry active yeast

2 tablespoons butter, melted

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 egg + 1 egg white, beaten

pinch of salt

pinch of sugar

for topping

1 egg beaten

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1. Heat milk on stove until warm to the touch. Add the packet of yeast, mix until dissolved and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, place the rest of the ingredients into the bowl of a mixer. Add the milk/yeast mixture. Mix on medium speed for about two minutes until the dough smooths out.

3. Place the ball of dough on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cover with a warm, damp towel and let sit on the countertop for about an hour.

4. Form the dough into palm sized-balls and place on baking sheet. Flatten lightly with the palm of your hand. Using a brush or a paper towel, dip into the egg mixture and wet the top of each bun. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

5. Place in a 350°F oven for about 50 minutes, until cooked through and beginning to brown.
