Pull Apart Dinner Rolls

Instructions for Pull Apart Dinner Rolls:

  • To make the recipe of pull apart dinner rolls first, tell me one thing, so being gluten-free, how many times have you had to let that tray of beautiful soft dinner rolls pass you by on Christmas or Easter or at some special dinner? Well, there’s no need to make the roll tray pass you by anymore. These rolls are soft and tender and delicious and fluffy, just like a dinner roll should be.
  • Let’s get ready generously grease your 8×8 baking dish and set out your butter and your eggs to bring them to room temperature. Now let’s combine the dry ingredients start by setting out of large mixing bowl and adding in all of your dry ingredients and now whisk all together measuring out your dry ingredients. It’s essential in gluten-free baking, so just make sure when you measure out your flour, you don’t scoop the measuring cup into the bag because that would result in way too much flour instead of what you want to do is you want to spoon the flour into the measuring cup.
  • All we’re doing here is just testing the yeast to make sure that it’s alive and active and ready to help our bread rise to your warm water add in the yeast now add in your sugar the sugar is essential because the yeast feeds on it stir that up now set a timer for about five minutes. We’ll see what happens with these it should get a little bit foamy on top to let us know that it’s active now make’s work on the wet ingredients toa medium-sized bowl add your eggs softened butter and apple cider vinegar.
Start the Timer for 105 Minutes
  • Mix this up for a minute for the best results on this recipe. Now take a look at your yeast if their foam on top that’s a good thing that means that your yeast is active and ready to go ahead, add it in once you’ve added in your active yeast.
  • You can start mixing on low speed if for some reason you don’t have any foam on your yeast then you should probably check the expiration date it may be expired get yourself a new package and start again this isn’t super common I don’t think I’ve ever had a lousy packet of yeast. Still, it’s better to prove you’re used to making sure so that you don’t waste your time or your ingredients as the wet ingredients are absorbed. You can turn it up to medium.
  • We’re going to mix this for at least 7 minutes, unlike gluten bread, where you develop gluten by kneading. We don’t have any gluten to grow. Still, by beating a little bit longer like this, we’re allowing the flours to absorb the liquids we’re working extra air into the batter. We’re helping the eggs to form some structure, and as a side, note the xanthan gum will also help to provide some of that structure its pretty good at mimicking gluten. It helps the rolls to tear like they should rather than crumble after all that beating don’t panic when you see your dough looking more like a thick cake batter. That’s what we want.
  • Now using a 2-inch scooper makes nine mounds of the mixture in your pan. Each scoop that you do should be only filling about 3/4 of the way full, and that should use your dough up precisely. If you’re using a different size scooper or some spoons, just adjust the quantity per scoop do your best to keep the mound separated a little bit so that they come out as individual rolls.
  • Now with a bit of warm water use your finger to smooth out the rolls, this part isn’t mandatory, but it gives you more beautiful dinner rolls.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and set aside to rise until they’ve doubled in size. The time for this will vary because it depends on the warmth of your ingredients. Still, for me, it usually takes anywhere from 50 minutes to 1 hour during the time that your rolls are rising to preheat the oven to 375 degrees when your rolls have roughly doubled in size, go ahead and take off the plastic. Pop them in the oven.
  • Your furnace should be preheated and ready to go at375 degrees after about 15 minutes, your roles will be nicely golden brown at this point cover them loosely within foil now bake them for an additional15 minutes. They’re all done, so the total baking time for these is just about 30 minutes or maybe a little bit more if you want them a little bit more golden, and here they are fresh out of the oven, and they smell amazing while the rolls are still warm brushed.
  • Them with melted butter, this, of course, gives them a sweet buttery flavor but also makes them look beautiful. Now because we grease the pan, you can easily remove all the rolls and put them onto a serving dish, and that way, there just pull-apart rolls that you can pass around the table or else you can slice them individually and serve them in a bowl. Still, to show you how nice these are and how they pull apart, I’ll slice one out to show you these are super hot right now.
  • They’re light and airy and moist. I love these you’d swear that these gluten rolls and look how nicely this tear apart, so go ahead and spread on some butter and enjoy your sweet, warm, soft, gluten-free pull-apart dinner rolls.
