These simple gluten-free sesame ciabatta buns can be used in many ways. However, they make for a fabulous burger bun, a sandwich bread or use them for dipping into exotic curry dishes. The texture is soft inside with a crispy sesame crust. I love using ciabatta buns for burgers because they are sturdy so you can pile on various toppings and they¬†will not fall apart. They also toast nicely on the grill. But don’t stop there, make some delicious garlic bread. Mix melted butter with garlic and fresh chopped parsley, brush bun halves with the garlic butter and grill, it is that easy. Gluten-free baking is getting simpler and better, just like these sesame ciabatta buns.

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups lukewarm water (105 -110 F)
  • 1 tsp. sweetener, I used coconut sugar
  • 1 packet dry active yeast or (2 + 1/4 Tbsp.)
  • 3 cups gluten-free flour blend (I use better batter or cup4cup) I haven't used other blends, so I don't know how they will work in this recipe
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Himalayan salt
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature, whisked
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Apple cider vinegar
  • Egg wash; Mix 1 egg with 1 Tbsp. of cold water
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds (I used black sesame seeds for the vibrant colour)
  • Instructions

  • Mix water, sweetener and yeast until dissolved. Rest for 10 minutes
  • Combine flour and salt. Add yeast mixture, egg, olive oil and apple cider vinegar and mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. About one minute
  • Place dough in a lightly greased bowl and cover with a damp towel. Place in a draft-free place for one hour allowing for the bread to rise to about 1 1/2 time it's size
  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Form the dough into 6 balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using your hands lightly flatten the balls. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 50 minutes until golden brown
