This is a simple, all-purpose, gluten free flour mix that is easy to make and yields a great taste and texture when converting your favorite recipes to gluten free.
I spent several years developing a flour mix that would have some whole grains and also lend a soft, non-gritty, and light texture that mimicks that of wheat, and now I’m sharing it with you!
This recipe works best for cakes, yeast breads/rolls, quick breads, cakes, and muffins. I don’t recommend this blend for cookies.
If you would rather buy a pre-made gluten free flour blend, there are some great ones! Here is a list of my favorite store-bought gluten free flour blends and which recipes they work well with.
This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you would like to make enough flour to keep on hand. Just use it within about a month so it stays fresh.
There is no need to refrigerate your flour, just store it in an airtight container in your pantry or a kitchen cupboard. If you do choose to keep it in the fridge, be sure to remove it before hand and let it get to room temp before using it in a recipe.
WHAT INGREDIENTS DO I NEED TO MAKE GLUTEN FREE FLOUR MIX?
- white rice flour
- brown rice flour or sorghum flour, or a combination of both
- tapioca starch or tapioca flour, they are the same thing
- potato starch not potato flour, they are very different!
- xanthan gum
HOW DO YOU MAKE GLUTEN FREE FLOUR MIX?
It’s easy! When making this or any other recipe, always measure by stirring the flour (or starch), spooning into a measuring cup, then leveling off with the flat side of a knife.
- Measure all ingredients into a large bowl.
- Whisk thoroughly.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I substitute another kind of starch for the tapioca or potato starch?
Yes. This recipe was formulated using tapioca and potato starch and will yield the best results with those, but you can sub arrowroot starch or corn starch if needed.
I can’t tolerate rice, can I use another flour?
I have successfully subbed sorghum flour for the brown rice flour, but haven’t ever tried subbing for the white flour as well. If you try it, please come back and comment to help others out!
