Cajun Dinner Rolls, WK# 23

Yay, I have finally gotten to the point of where I have everything already stocked in the kitchen. No special trips to the grocery store. I had the almond flour, flaxseed flour, and the Xanthan gum on hand as well as all of the other ingredients. I can probably thank The Gent for having all the other ingredients such as cayenne pepper, onion and garlic powder. He’s the cook in our house anyway.

But on with this week’s baking challenge. I decided on Cajun Dinner Rolls because I was going to also make my red beans and rice for tonight’s chow. Normally, we do take out Chinese on Sundays but I’ve had the hankering for red beans and rice for like a week now. With the rain moving in this evening, I thought the red beans and rice would be perfect. Then, add in the Cajun Dinner Rolls to make it even more special.

Of course, I was nervous at first because I read through the recipe and noticed I had to do something I’d never done before. I had to divide the dough, roll into little balls and put three at a time in a muffin tin hoping and praying it would come out like the picture in the book showed; The Joy of Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free Baking.

I loved the way the house smelled as these rolls were baking in the oven.

I don’t know why but I was stunned and astonished that they turned out so well. I mean, what I am trying to say is that I am pleasantly surprised that I did this, that I accomplished baking these rolls. They are so stinkin’ cute too! They actually did what they were supposed to do – when I rolled the individual dough balls and put three of them in one muffin tin and they baked together. How cute!

This was another super easy recipe to whip up. It took longer to bake in the oven than putting the ingredients together. In the cookbook, there is a variation to add cheese to these rolls but I opted not to do it this time. Perhaps I will give it a try at a later date.

In the meantime, they were totally delicious as is with my red beans and rice. I am so happy because these rolls came out JUST LIKE THE ONES SHOWN IN THE COOKBOOK!

There it is, my red beans and rice. The family was pleased. Add butter to the rolls if you’d like. Enjoy!

I will put up the April contest soon, stay tuned.

Thanks for reading and happy baking!
