    Wonderful rolls! We made 12 rolls instead of 9. Added chocolate chips instead of raisins. But we made with raisins on first go. Everyone loved the rolls. Thanks!

    I followed recipe and substituted King Arthur gluten free flour. Weighed butter and flour on kitchen scales i could not get mixture to form a ball so I added another egg, some milk and one tablespoon of melter butter. I managed to get a third of the mixture to stick together some it never rose and in the garbage it all went went!

    Usually when gluten free flour is used xanthum gum or guar gum is needed for recipes calling for regular flour. Check your yeast too. I've used yeast that was a year old and my bread wouldn't rise.

    Tried this twice so far and we were unsuccessful both times- it was even worse the second time. The yeast does not work in this recipe - the dough does not raise and the buns are so dense and dry they are difficult to eat. I may switch out the yeast and try this as more of a soda bread recipe (can’t tell it has yeast in it anyways!) or experiment with adding liquid. But this recipe does not work as is.

    Could your yeast have been out of date?

    Check expiry on your yeast. That could be the problem.

    Made these today and they were wonderful. I didn't have any problems with them.
