Found! A Foolproof Gluten-Free Flour Recipe

Posted by

At last! A versatile recipe for all your gluten-free baking needs. I use it for pancakes, waffles, crepes, cakes, cookies, scones, biscuits, and quick breads. When choosing which flour combination to use, consider that sorghum will give you the lightest result in baking. Millet and amaranth will give you a heavier result. For cakes and cookies, I recommend using sorghum. For breads, scones, and biscuits, millet or amaranth are good choices.

Elizabeth’s Gluten-free Flour Blend

Ingredients 4 cups mix 8 cups mix
Organic brown rice flour 1 ½ cups 3 cups
Organic white rice flour 1 ¼ cups 2 ½  cups
Organic sorghum, buckwheat, millet or amaranth* ½ cup 1 cup
Organic potato starch flour ½ cup 1 cup
Organic tapioca flour ¼ cup ½ cup
Xanthan gum 2 teaspoons 1 tablespoon

Mix all ingredients together and place in air-tight container.

  • This is great, and greatly enables baking gluten-free. I sometimes use guar gum instead of xanthum gum, but it really seems to be quite similar. When I am feeling lazy, I just throw in brown rice floor and xanthum gum instead of wheat floor in any recipe, but as you might imagine this yields very mixed results :)
