More gluten free flour combinations for baking...

I updated my flour combinations for baking yesterday.  Here is the new completed list.

Happy baking!!

Basic Gluten Free Flour Mix  -can be used to replace wheat flour in any recipe.
2 cups white rice flour
2/3 cup potato starch
1/3 cup tapioca flour

Basic Rice Flour Mix - can be used to replace wheat flour in any recipe.
3 cups rice flour (brown or white)
3 cups tapioca flour
3 cups cornstarch
3 Tbsp potato flour (not potato starch)


All-Purpose Flour Blend  -can be used to replace wheat flour in any recipe.
2 cups rice flour
1 cup tapioca starch/flour
1 cup cornstarch or potato starch

Note:  For the basic and all-purpose flour mixes add xanthan gum or guar gum to the recipe. It provides the binding needed to give the baked product proper elasticity, which prevents crumbling.
Use these amounts:
1/2 tsp. per cup of flour blend for cakes, cookies, bars, muffins & quick breads.
1 tsp. per cup of flour blend for yeast bread, pizza dough or other baked items that call for yeast.


Self-Rising Flour Blend -Use this specifically for muffins, scones, cakes, cupcakes or any recipe that uses baking powder for leavening.
2 1/2 cups white sorghum flour
2 1/2 cups white rice flour
1 cup tapioca starch/flour
4 tsp. xanthan gum or guar gum
8 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

High-Protein Flour Blend - works best in baked goods that require elasticity, such as wraps & pie crusts.
2 1/2 cups bean flour (garbanzo bean or soy)
2 cups arrowroot starch, cornstarch or potato starch
2 cups tapioca starch/flour
2 cups white or brown rice flour
See note above for adding xanthan gum to recipe

Gluten Free Combo Flour Mixture - great for pound cakes, fruitcakes, and sweet breads.
2 1/2 cups brown or white rice flour
1 cup potato starch
1 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup bean flour (chick-pea or garbanzo bean flour is lighter, fava bean flour is denser)
2 Tbsp xanthan gum


I have also found organizing and storing of  the flours and grains is a huge time saver. It also helps you keep track of what you have on hand.
