Heavy cream


  1. Grease and line a sheet pan with parchment.
  2. Combine Authentic Foods Steve's GF Bread Flour Blend, sugar, salt, and yeast in mixer bowl. In separate bowl whisk together eggs, melted butter, oil, and water.
  3. With mixer running with dough hook attachment gradually add liquids to dry mix. Scrape down bottom and sides and allow to mix on medium speed until smooth dough is formed.
  4. Remove dough from mixer bowl and knead lightly until smooth. Dust work surface well with rice flour, as well as top of dough. Roll out dough with rolling pin into a 15 inches x 20 inches rectangle with the widest end facing you.
  5. For the filling place softened butter in mixer bowl with paddle attachment. Begin mixing to soften and break up butter. In separate bowl sift and combine brown sugar, powdered sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt. With mixer running on low, add half of dry ingredients to butter gradually, followed by heavy cream, and lastly add remaining cinnamon sugar mixture. Mix until smooth and evenly combined.
  6. Dust any remaining flour off of dough after rolling out and spread filling evenly throughout dough leaving a 1/2 inch margin along the bottom. Begin rolling up dough into a log starting from the farthest end bringing it in towards you. Roll up as tightly as possible. Brush bottom end with some water to help seal the roll once finished rolling.
  7. Take log and cut into 15 equal pieces. Transfer to parchment lined pan placing rolls side by side to prevent excessive spreading and cover with plastic. Place in a warm area to rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  8. While rolls are rising preheat oven to 350F.
  9. When ready to bake brush tops of rolls with egg wash and place in oven. Bake until lightly browned but still soft, about 20 minutes.

Made these this a.m. and they were fantastic, I have been cooking gluten free for 17 years and this is the best bread flour I have used!

Waiting for my first bag of this flour to give these a try...wondering @Kimberly...what did you use to replace the eggs and dairy in these to make them GF and vegan?

So I made (almost) as listed... I kind of forgot that the water was supposed to be warm but hey it still worked out even if it took me forever to spread out the filling over the dough, with my fingers... it was a little thick. But practice makes perfect and the only changes I think I'll make for next time is that A) use warm water; B) add nuts (love me some pecans!); C) use a higher sided pan since the ooey gooey in the title is literal. The darn things started melting over the sides of my pan and I forgot to put in an oven liner. Thank goodness for self cleaning ovens.

Finally found a flour to make my grandmother’s sticky buns gluten free where they aren’t just a carrier for the sweet syrup! Thank you for such a great product. I made this cinnamon roll dough - what an easy dough to work with after so many others just crumbled or stuck to everything and hardly rose! I substituted my grandmother’s caramelized syrup and simple filling we are used to and I couldn’t tell the difference! My daughter and I are both gluten free and have missed this traditional Christmas morning treat for years and now no longer need to! Can’t wait to try some bread. 😃
