On a Roll

A hamburger is not really a hamburger without a roll. For that reason, I attempted to make my own.

This recipe was adapted from Gluten-Free Goddess.

Having to eliminate yeast when making bread or rolls is a bit of a problem, therefore these buns have more of a savoury muffin texture - I believe that this recipe would work beautifully as a loaf though.

When baking gluten free, expect your dough to be a lot different to an original bread dough - it is more of a batter and for that reason I baked these buns in a muffin tin. These buns are also dairy and egg free.

Hamburger "Buns":
(Makes 5)

Dry Ingredients:

I had these flours on hand - you can experiment with your own flours or follow Gluten-Free Goddess' recipe directly. As long as you use a combination of starch and flour.

1 Cup Buckwheat Flour (Health Connection)
1/2 Cup Potato Flour (Health Connection)
1/2 Cup Maizena
1/4 Cup White Maize Meal (Earth Products)
1/4 Cup Quinoa Flour (Health Connection)
2 Teaspoons Xanthan Gum
1.5 Teaspoons Sea Salt
1tsp Royal Baking Powder
1tsp Royal Bicarbonate of Soda

Wet Ingredients:

1 1/4 Cup Warm Water
3 Tbs Canola Oil
2 Tbs Honey
2 Tsp Lemon Juice
1 Tsp Orgran Egg Replacer mixed into 2 Tbs Rice Milk

Sesame Seeds


Sieve dry ingredients and set aside
Mix 1tbs honey, lemon juice, baking powder and bicarb together and slowly add the warm water
Stir quickly (it should be frothy at this stage) and add to the dry ingredients
Add the oil, remaining honey and mixed egg replacer
Stir thoroughly until a batter has formed
Spoon the batter into muffin tins and smooth evenly with wet fingers
Top with sesame seeds
Loosely cover the pan with a tea towel and allow to rest in a warm spot for 20 minutes
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius
Bake the buns for about 40 - 50 minutes
Remove buns from muffin pan and cool on a wired rack

A Quick Tomato Relish:

1 - 2 Tomatoes, Diced
Olive Oil for Frying
Herbal Salt and Pepper
Squeeze Lemon Juice
Basil Leaves


Fry onions until golden, add tomatoes, fructose, herbal salt, pepper and lemon juice
Simmer for a few minutes
Add basil leaves and stir
Serve dripping over the edges of the patty
