Gluten-Free Poppy Seed Bread Rolls

Make these to enjoy with dinner tonight—but be careful not to fill up on them!


2 c Better Batter Gluten Free Flour

1 tsp salt

1/3 c sugar (sugar may be added to taste)

4 eggs

1.5 c milk, milk substitute, or water

poppy seeds, to taste

1 egg-white

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 1 or two cookie sheets or muffin top tins.

2. In an electric mixer, beat the flour, salt, 4 eggs, sugar and milk or water on high speed for 7-10 minutes. This should produce a batter with the consistency of soft butter-cream icing.

3. Working quickly, spoon this mixture by ½-cup portions onto prepared cookie sheets or muffin top tins. Wet hands and gently smooth and flatten mounds to a width of 3-4 inches and a depth of 1/4 to 1/2 inch.

(Note: If you desire a soft edge to the bun, as with store-bought buns, use a cookie sheet and place mounds so that they touch slightly when flattened. For a crisper crust on all surfaces of the bun, use a muffin top tin or do not allow buns to touch on cookie sheet.)

4. Mix together 1 egg white with a little water and the poppy seeds until well-combined. (I like a heavy amount of poppy seeds.) Brush mixture onto the dough.

5. If desired spray with cooking spray – this will improve the finished appearance and texture of the cooked bun.

6. Place in hot oven and bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and puffed.

7. Allow to cool completely before slicing.

  1. Hi Tina these sound great. I always like to have bread rolls served with our more formal dinners, as they create a formal atmosphere, however so we don’t all fill up on them at the beginning of the meal, I serve them WITH the entree. I also start out each dinner with a salad, and LOTS of it. Big plates and everyone just loads them all up! Can’t wait to serve these at dinnertime this weekend:)

  2. Mmm nothing like some good old fashioned bread rolls as the ultimate dinnertime comfort food, and at least there’s no sugar in this. Bread I don’t think is optimum but it’s better than bread and lots of sugar!

  3. This sounds really good but I heard somewhere that poppy seeds can make you test positive for opium in a blood test? I don’t even know why I’m concerned about that because I’m a stay at home mom but I’ve always been curious about that. I think I heard about that on a Seinfeld episode lol.

  4. I made these last night with soy milk and they turned out really great! I ran out of regular soy milk (I’m lactose-intolerant) so I used the vanilla soymilk, and it actually tasted pretty good. Usually I avoid using vanilla soy in non-dessert recipes as it’s so sweet and dessert-like, but they gave these bread rolls just a hint of sweet and I really liked that. In fact, the next time I make this recipe I may do that again.
