Experimenting with different gluten free flours can be fun, and is great way to get your bearings when beginning to bake gluten free. However, it is also helpful to have an all purpose flour when you need to fix up a quick meal. This recipe uses a starch, a base, and one to two whole grains, depending on your preference.
There is one other advantage (at least for me) in making your own flour mix. Yesterday, while I sat, waiting for my browned butter to cool enough to bake with, I began mixing my freshly combined flour. It was already mixed well- I had made sure of that – but I just couldn’t stop mixing it. It’s just so white and light and fluffy… So there you have it! Bored? Mix flour. Have a hard to entertain child? Have them mix flour. Maybe it’s a little bit absurd, but I really enjoy it. Don’t judge.
Gluten Free Flour Mix
3/4 cup brown rice flour
3/4 cup oat flour
1 1/2 cup white rice flour
3/4 cup potato starch
I make my flour with oat flour when I use it for baking, but if you are planning to use it for cooking, or do not like the taste of oats, you can use more brown rice flour or sorghum flour instead.
- Combine the flours in a large bowl, store in an airtight container or ziplock bag
