gluten free flour mix
I’ve tried 99% of commercially available all-purpose gluten free flour mixes and, to be frank, have not been terribly enthused about any of them. In an effort to save some pennies by making my own, I have been trying to recreate Authentic Foods’ all-purpose flour blend for quite a while. In my opinion, it has the best results over the widest range of recipes – which saves me lots of time. This recipe seems to produce very similar results (and has the exact list of ingredients on the Authentic label). I’ve seen a similar recipe published in Living Without and posted at glutenfreegobsmacked.com. This is my tweak on it. I choose not to include the xanthan or guar gum in the mix because not all recipes require it. This way, I have a lot more flexibility depending on the item I am baking. If you prefer to include it and not hassle with it later, simply add 2 1/2 teaspoons to the mix.
Sift 3 times. I use a wide-mouthed fine mesh kitchen strainer. You can use a whisk, but I feel the strainer has more effective results.
1 cup brown rice flour
1 1/4 cups white rice flour
1/4 cup potato starch (not flour)
2/3 cup tapioca starch flour
3/4 cup sweet rice flour
1/3 cup cornstarch or arrowroot starch
