The season is changing from summer to autumn… and with all the leaves falling in the yard, I am longing for savory breads and toasty things from the oven.
Today I experimented with sourdough-cinnamon rolls. Okay.. yes please! am I right? Seriously. Yum.
I have never had a cinnamon roll made with sourdough before… seems like I would remember that. And I have never seen a recipe for them either, and I read a LOT of cookbooks… so I modified my favorite recipe to use the sourdough sauce on my counter. Yep, it’s still going strong after weeks of experiments. I wonder how long I can keep it going? Some of the “tips and tricks about sourdough” that I have read, suggested that you can keep in the refrigerator. Eh. The short answer is yes, yes you can. But mine works better if it lives on the kitchen counter, where it can be a constant temperature.
Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls
- 1 Cup sourdough batter
- 1/2 C rice syrup (which I used in place of honey)
- 2 “eggs” (I used “flax eggs”)

- 1/2 Cups oil
- 1/2 Cup brown rice flour
- 1/2 Cup tapioca flour
- 1 3/4 Cups potato starch
- 1 Tblspoon dry yeast

Mixed in the Kitchenaid mixer for about two minutes until well mixed.
Spoon out onto a well dusted waxed paper rectangle.
Then, spread with melted butter (about 3 Tablespoons) an
d sprinkle with
- 2/3 Cups brown sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon
Using the waxed paper to help pick up and roll the dough, roll into a log. Cut 1 1/2 inch rolls and place cut side up spiralsin well greased 9×13 pan. Let rise 30-45 minutes.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes

I started some sourdough the other day and while I was waiting for it to percolate and do it’s thing for 3 days… I started looking for recipes to turn it into something “real”. I am thinking maybe some pancakes, or bread , or something.
If you have been gluten-free for more than about 2 hours, then you know the bread problem. Sure, there are some store bought options, but the real truth of it is that many of those options are just gross. Or they have too much sugar, or weird flour blends that I can’t have. What I want, is what I used to have: home baked, fresh sourdough bread. Really, is that too much to ask? Yeah, for gluten-free, it probably is.
Having to toss out a decades old sourdough starter when I realized it was full of poison (gluten) ..was like saying goodbye to a family member. So sad. It took me years to restart a new tub of sourdough. The first attempt was gross, and I moved on by just making other kinds of bread, buying some from the store freezer, and mostly doing without. But last week, I decided to try once more and I am so glad I did. I know what I did wrong last time.. and this attempt seems successful so far.
Real Bread. It’s yummy.
Yeah, it’s a slow news day. Sorry.
Garlic, chicken and potatoes. Cubed. In a pan. Baked.
- 4 garlic pieces, minced
- 1 onion, sliced and diced
- 6 potatoes, peeled, cubed
- 5 chicken breasts, cubed
- 1 box of Pacific Cream of Chicken soup
- 1 C hemp or coconut milk, whatever is on the shelf
- 1 tsp poultry seasoning
- 1/4 tsp white pepper
Slice and dice and cube. Layer all the chunky stuff in a pan. Mix the soup and the milk and the seasonings and pour all of that over the top of the chunks and bits.
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes, covered and another 30 minutes, uncovered. This makes a total of one hour baking time if you are playing along with our home game.
