The Recipe How-To

 Say goodbye to boring store-bought buns and hello to homemade goodness.
Say goodbye to boring store-bought buns and hello to homemade goodness.

Step 1: Make the Yeast Mixture

In a small bowl, mix 2 tbsp of honey with 1 tsp of sugar and 1 package of active dry yeast. Pour in ½ cup of warm water and stir gently until the yeast mixture becomes creamy. Set aside for about 5 minutes or until the yeast is bloomed.

Step 2: Combine Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 2 cups of your gluten-free flour blend, 2 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp of salt, and 1 tbsp of psyllium husk powder. You can use store-bought gluten-free flour blend or make your own by mixing sorghum flour, tapioca starch, arrowroot flour, potato starch, and cornstarch in equal parts. Mix well.

Step 3: Add Wet Ingredients

Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and add in the yeast mixture together with 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar, 2 large eggs, and ¼ cup melted butter (or olive oil for vegan option). Mix thoroughly until you get a uniform dough.

For Vegans: You may use olive oil instead of melted butter.

Step 4: Let It Rise

Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap. Set aside in a warm place for about an hour or until it doubles in size.

Step 5: Form Dough into Buns

Use a silicone spatula to scrape down the dough onto a floured surface. Gently knead it for just about 2 minutes to create a uniform texture. Use your hands to shape them into buns. This recipe yields around 4 burger buns so you can make adjustments accordingly.

Step 6: Rest Buns Again

Place the buns on a parchment-lined baking sheet while making sure they are spaced apart by 2 inches. Cover the baking sheet with a towel and let them rest for another 30 minutes.

Step 7: Preheat and Bake

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Brush the buns with egg wash (1 beaten egg + 1 tbsp of water) and sprinkle some sesame seeds or flaxseed on top. Bake them for about 14-16 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

Step 8: Cool and Serve

Take the buns out of the oven and let them cool on a wire rack before slicing them open. Use them right away or store in an airtight container once they have cooled down completely.

Now, you have successfully made homemade gluten-free multigrain hamburger buns ready for your healthy burgers! Enjoy!

Whether you prefer a specific gluten-free flour, want to try out some new flavors, or need to make this recipe vegan or dairy-free, there’s a substitute that will work for you. Here are some ideas:

– Flour Blend: The original recipe calls for a blend of teff, arrowroot, cornstarch, potato starch, and tapioca starch. However, if you have a favorite gluten-free flour blend, feel free to use that instead. Just make sure it adds up to approximately 2 cups of flour.

– Psyllium Husks: Instead of guar gum or xanthan gum, you can use psyllium husk powder to help bind the buns together. Use 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk powder to replace the 1 teaspoon of guar gum.

– Flavors: Add some extra flavor to your buns by mixing in some sesame seeds or flax seed. You could also substitute apple cider vinegar for the white vinegar for a slightly different taste.

– Vegan Option: To make these buns vegan, simply replace the eggs with flax eggs (mix 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed with 6 tablespoons of warm water and let sit until gelatinous) and use melted coconut oil or vegan butter instead of the melted butter.

– Dairy-Free Option: If you’re looking for a dairy-free option, just replace the melted butter with olive oil or another neutral oil.

As someone who has experimented with numerous gluten-free recipes, I’ve learned a few tips and tricks for perfecting the art of baking with gluten-free flours. Here are some helpful tips to ensure that your gluten-free multigrain hamburger buns come out as good as, if not better than, their traditional counterparts:

1. Use a flour blend: Instead of using just one type of flour, create a mixture of flours to improve the texture and flavor of your buns. I suggest using a combination of teff flour, arrowroot starch, tapioca starch, potato starch, and cornstarch as a base for your gluten-free flour blend.

2. Add psyllium husk powder or guar gum: Gluten is what gives traditional bread its elasticity and binding power. In place of gluten, add psyllium husk powder or guar gum to help give your buns structure and allow them to rise properly.

3. Let the dough rest: Gluten-free dough can be delicate and more fragile than traditional dough. Letting it rest helps activate the leavening agents and allows the dough to rise appropriately.

4. Don’t overwork the dough: Kneading gluten-free dough too much can cause it to become tough and dense. Be gentle when mixing and forming your buns and resist the urge to overwork the dough.

5. Use high-quality ingredients: Using quality ingredients such as apple cider vinegar, olive oil, honey, eggs, and flax seeds can make all the difference in how your buns taste.

6. Ensure your yeast is fresh: Old yeast can lead to poor rising and ultimately affect the overall quality of your buns. Use active dry yeast that isn’t past its expiration date for best results.

By following these simple tips, you’ll be well on your way to creating soft, fluffy multigrain hamburger buns that are both healthy and delicious – plus they’re gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan-friendly!
