FORGET THIS RECIPE USE THIS ONE INSTEAD! : http://nannykimsrecipes.blogspot.com/2013/12/cinnamon-bun-gluten-free.html
My son made this for me for Christmas breakfast and it was great. I make the family cinnamon buns so my son made me a cinnamon bun type coffee cake. I forgot to take a picture until it was part way gone. Only problem--after 2 days the dough part got very hard--so either eat quickly or perhaps add some butter to the flour part..... (ok--I MADE AN IMPROVED DAIRY FREE VERSION FOUND HERE: nope__USE THIS ONE http://nannykimsrecipes.blogspot.com/2013/12/cinnamon-bun-gluten-free.html NOT THE NEXT ONE
I ADDED SOME APPLESAUCE ALSO MY SON FORGOT TO LET IT RISE A SECOND TIME WHICH I HAVE INSERTED IN THE DIRECTIONS BELOW--MIGHT MAKE A DIFFERENCE. HIS VERSION IS GOOD IF YOU WANT THE BUTTER ....I THINK MY VERSION WILL REMAIN FRESHER LONGER.
HERE IS HIS VERSION:
2 cup rice flour
1 cup tapioca starch/flour
1cup corn starch or potato starch
2 tsp xanthan gum
4 cups flour (of the above flour mixture)
1 package active dry yeast
1 cup vanilla soy milk (or soy milk + vanilla)
2-4 tbsp melted butter
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup brown or unprocessed sugar
3/4 cup brown or unprocessed sugar
1 tbsp ground flax seed (can use a coffee grinder to grind it)
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Stir 1 1/2 cup flour & yeast set aside (may want to put yeast in warm water, instead)
Heat up some water (1/4 cup or so) and pour the ground flax seed into it, then set aside.
In saucepan, heat milk, 1/3 cup honey, 1/3 cup sugar, and dash of salt until warm (120-130 degrees) and the mixture is thoroughly mixed (no honey/sugar remains clinging to the bottom of pan when you tilt it)
In a bowl, combine the remaining flour, the heated mixture, and the flax-seed + water, then beat until very smooth.
Add the flour and yeast to the mixture, and stir with a spoon.
Cover and allow to rise until double the size (1 1/2 hour or so)
Spread into a glass baking pan.
Sprinkle with the brown sugar, cinamon, raisins, and chopped nuts.
Pour the melted butter over the top. Let rise again.
Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.
I want to experiment with non-butter solutions. Also, it might be good to place butter, sugar, cinamon, etc on the bottom of the pan, rather than on top of the cake, then flip the cake when removing from the oven.
