Friday Finds: Lorraine’s Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

What is the food you miss the most since going gluten free?  For me, it would be cinnamon rolls, and I know that I am not alone.

If you have followed the blog long enough, you know that I have publicly lamented about my inability to successfully make gluten free and egg free cinnamon rolls.  I’ve never shared a recipe on the blog because I’ve never created one that I love enough to share.

Well, enter in Lorraine’s Gluten Free.  A few week’s ago I contacted the company about participating in my Friday Finds segment on the blog.  They happily sent me a complimentary bag of their sweet dough mix.

Sweet Dough Mix

I was resigned to try and make their cinnamon rolls.  I didn’t hold out much hope, not because of the mix, but because of my repeated ineptness.  Also, I knew that I was going to omit eggs.  And more times than not, it’s a game-changer (not in a good way).

So, yesterday I got to work.  I followed the instructions to the letter with the exception of the eggs.  Instead, I stirred 1/4 cup of ground golden flax seed with 1/2 cup warm water.  I let the mixture sit for 5 minutes then added it to the dough mixture.   Oh, I almost forgot, I added 2 teaspoons of vanilla bean paste to the cinnamon roll filling – just because vanilla bean paste is amazing.

After the first rise I knew that these cinnamon rolls would be a success.  And after I rolled the dough out, formed the cinnamon rolls, and allowed for a second rise, my hopes were high.

The results?  Nothing short of amazing.  I mean completely and utterly amazing.  Literally the best cinnamon roll I’ve had – even with the egg substitute.

I highly recommend Lorraine’s Gluten Free Sweet Dough Mix.  Yeast packets are included in the package, and there are instructions to make donuts or beignets if you prefer.   One bag is priced at $14.99.  I would not hesitate to buy this again to make for a special treat for my family.  Here’s the ingredient list:
