Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Flour Blend
A simple but versatile flour blend, our Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Blend is a perfect substitute in your baking recipes.
When it comes to gluten free baking, there is a lot of trial and error. Unlike regular flour, different gluten free flour blends can give different results. As such, baking gluten free can be a bit of a challenge.
When I wrote my first cookbook, I decided that I wanted to create a flour blend that can be used in all the recipes so that the end result would be as I wanted it to.
This took a lot of trial and error, but in the end I created a 1:1 baking blend that gave me great results almost every time I use it. (I say almost every time, because nothing comes out perfect every time. Haha)
Why make your own Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Blend?
You may be thinking with all the remade blends on the market why go to the trouble of making your own. The answer, for me at least, is simple, supply.
Sometimes getting the different pre-made blends can be tricky. Especially if you need a specific blend for a specific recipe. Making your own means that you can control the results and there is no need to hunt for a specific brand of flour.
What do you need for our Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Blend?
With gluten free flours, using one flour as a 1:1 replacement for regular flour isn’t always and option. If requires a combination of gluten free flours to create one flour blend that can then be used as a 1:1 replacement for regular flour.
Our blend is made up of
- Brown Rice Flour
- White Rice Flour
- Sweet Sorghum Flour
- Tapioca Starch
- Potato Starch
- Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum
When these are combined the right amounts, the result is a gluten free 1:1 baking blend similar to that of the Bob’s Red Mill version.
I’ve used it in a number of our recipes such as:
It can also be used in your favorite baking recipes that require a gluten free 1:1 baking blend.
