In DeliberateFare.com recipes, premade gluten-free flours are avoided. Many premade blends have or require the addition of xanthun gum and guar gum. These gums often cause gastro-intestinal upset for sensitive individuals, such as myself. Additionally, some store-bought blends contain milk powder which is also hard for many people to digest. Therefore, many recipes on this site call for a homemade flour blend. Here are a few great ones.

INGREDIENTS

  • 400 grams millet flour
  • 300 grams potato starch
  • 300 grams sweet rice four

Gluten-Free Pastry Flour Blend (from Elizabeth Barbone)

METHOD

  1. Select which flour blend you will be making for the batch. Into a large bowl, add the ingredients of the flour blend. Be certain to measure accurately (if using measuring cup, then lightly scoop and then level off to the top of the cup using either finger or butter knife).
  2. Using a fork or a whisk, combine ingredients well. Scrape the bottom of the bowl several times to be certain all flour ingredients have been well incorporated.
  3. Pour flour blend into storage container and affix lid tightly.
  4. Use flour blend for your selected baking recipe.

SUGGESTIONS

  • Store flour blends in cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight.
  • Use gluten-free flour blends in place of traditional wheat-based flour in your selected baking recipe. Some recipes might need an addition of ground flax seeds to make up for the gluten. DeliberateFare.com recipes will list whether flax seeds are required in a baking recipe.
  • Make a large batch of gluten-free flour blend, store, and use for future baking...it will make life a lot simpler in the kitchen.
