  • 1 (7g) package or 2¼ teaspoons active dry yeast (included in 19 oz bag)
  • 2 eggs, large

Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin tin.

Add 2 eggs, and then fill the rest of the measuring cup with warm water until the entire mixture adds up to 2 cups. Add this to Bread Mix and yeast, and beat for three minutes on medium/high. Fill muffin cups 1/2 full of dough. Let rise for 1 hour and bake at 375º for 30-35 minutes.

    These rolls were easy to make. I have 4 kids that are gluten free and one celiac. We are so happy to have a good roll recipe that isn’t gritty and actually tastes like rolls. So good warm with butter on them!

    Made these rolls for Christmas Eve and Christmas dinner. My entire family raved about these rolls and couldn’t believe they were gluten free. Just bought 25lbs of this flour as this will become a staple in our family. The rolls are soft and doughy not dry and gritty like most gluten free rolls. Love all your mixes Pamela’s. You have made being gluten free amazing!!

    Ever made this without using eggs or egg substitutes?

  5. Henifer March 27, 2016 at 5:26 pm #

    How many is this supposed to make?

    • Pamelas Customer Service March 28, 2016 at 10:38 am #

      Hi Henifer,
      This recipe will make 12 rolls.

    How much baking powder could i use in place of the yeast?

  7. Whitney October 6, 2016 at 12:04 pm #

    Can you make these on a flat surface without a muffin pan?

    • Pamelas Customer Service October 6, 2016 at 2:53 pm #

      Hi Whitney,
      They may spread too much, but you could try letting the dough rise first in a bowl, and then scooping on a tray covered with parchment paper. Bake right away so they have less time to spread. Good luck!

    If making the egg free version as rolls is bake time and oven temp the same?

    • Pamelas Customer Service November 21, 2016 at 9:41 am #

      Hi Jennifer,
      The bake temp is the same, but you may have to bake them longer. Touch the tops to check — you don’t want them to be too soft or they may not be baked through on the inside. Also, with the egg-free version, you should let them cool before serving or they could collapse.

      • Jennifer November 22, 2016 at 9:39 pm #

        Hi- thank you for response. So if I’m doing egg free version I still need to let rise once I’ve put in muffin tin? And is olive oil okay to use? I can’t have canola or corn oil

        • Pamelas Customer Service November 23, 2016 at 8:59 am #

          Yes, the rise is the same and olive oil works fine.

    You have such an amazing array of recipes and ideas… Such a help in a gluten free/celiac home.

    Can this recipe be altered to use the Artisan flour instead of the bread mix? We also have an egg replacer instead of eggs due to an egg allergy. Any tips on using this instead of eggs with the Artisan flour?

    • Pamelas Customer Service November 23, 2016 at 8:52 am #

      Hi Michelle,
      This recipe was formulated for the Bread Mix, so it cannot be altered just by subbing the All-Purpose Flour. Perhaps use this recipe instead: Artisan Hamburger Buns (you could put dough in muffin tin instead of hamburger bun size). We have not, however, tried it with egg replacer. Hope this helps and good luck!

    Love these rolls. They taste great but mine look like hockey pucks. I followed the recipe exactly. Any tips or hints to make them look like the picture? Also can the recipe be doubled?

    • Jennifer November 29, 2016 at 9:25 am #

      We use 110 degree water and add 1 tsp of sugar to help the yeast out. 🙂

    How many calories are in one roll?

    • Pamelas Customer Service December 2, 2016 at 10:56 am #

      Hi Jade,
      We do not have the calorie calculations for our recipes, but the Bread Mix nutritional information can be found on this page: Bread Mix — there is a link at the bottom of the ingredients.

    hi, These are delicious! they rose beautifully but deflated after I took them out of oven. I made as directed with eggs. what am i doing wrong?

  13. Tracy August 31, 2017 at 12:49 pm #

    Hi! A friend of mine raves about your bread mix, so I purchased a bag and was very excited to try it, but we don’t have a heavy duty stand mixer. Is it possible to make this recipe without one?

    Ps. My family absolutely loves all of your GF mixes! Thank you so much for making such tasty GF baking options!!

    • Pamelas Customer Service September 1, 2017 at 11:27 am #

      Hi Tracy,
      Yes, it is possible but the dough is very thick and it will be a little difficult to get it mixed.

  14. Donel November 23, 2017 at 8:41 am #

    Hi. I noticed that the recipe here says the bake temperature is 375, but on the bag it says 350 degrees. Can you clarify which is the correct temperature? Thanks.

    • Pamelas Customer Service November 25, 2017 at 7:47 am #

      Hi Donel,
      Pamela recommends 375.

    Any tips if you don’t have a stand mixer and have to mix by hand?

    • Pamelas Customer Service February 27, 2018 at 12:20 pm #

      Hello skoutz,
      This makes a thick batter that will be hard to handle without a stand mixer. We would recommend not using a hand mixer, as the dough will ride up the beaters. If you are strong enough, you can try mixing with a spatula or wooden spoon. A stand mixer is a great investment for gluten-free baking. 🙂

    Do I need to alter this recipe for high altitude?

    • Pamelas Customer Service September 24, 2018 at 10:54 am #

      Hi Linda,
      Here are some general high altitude baking directions (not recipe specific):
      Decrease water by 1-2 tablespoons
      Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees
      Increase baking time by 5-15 minutes, checking at 5 minute intervals
      Hope this works for you!

    How much Baking Soda should I use?
    As I can’t have Yeast.

    • Pamelas Customer Service December 17, 2018 at 9:53 am #

      Hello Blimey,
      Follow this recipe for Yeast-Free Bread and you can probably put it in the muffin tin as directed.
