Gina's Gluten Free Biscuits

My husband made a comment not too long ago that surprised me.  I'd just found this recipe, and I was super excited to give it a try, when my dh said, "I think that you're glad you're Celiac."  No!  No!  No!  That wasn't it, but I can see how he got that impression.  There are SO many delicious recipes and Celiac friends out there, that when you connect with a really good one, it makes you smile.  


There was a period of time when I mourned delicious food.  Not doughnuts or pizza or soft bread - just really tasty food.  Then I began discovering blogs and recipes.  That led to new friends and conversations.  I follow a good number of blogs, but the first one I followed was Gina Gluten Free.  Gina really knows how to cook!  I borrowed and adapted the ideas for this recipe from Gina.

1 t. white vinegar 
¼  cup canola oil
1 1/2 cups warm water
3 large eggs 
2 cups of white or brown rice flour
½  cup potato starch 
¼  cup tapioca flour
½  cup corn starch
¼ cup flax meal
1 T. xanthan gum
3 T. sugar or honey
1 t. salt 
2/3 cup skim milk powder
2 1/2 t. dry active yeast for your breadmaker
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the liquid ingredients in a small mixing bowl, and pour carefully into bread machine baking pan. In another bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (except xanthan gum) and add to baking pan. Place the baking pan in the bread maker. Select the normal/basic/white cycle and start the bread machine. After the mixing cycle begins, slowly add the xanthan gum.  
  3. Allow the dough to rise in the bread machine.  After the dough has risen in the bread machine, remove it and form into small rolls in greased muffin tins.   
  4. Allow the dough to rise in the muffin tins a second time.  Bake for 30 minutes.
