Gluten-Free Flour Mix

I make this recipe in two-quart batches and store them in airtight jars. My son and I both have celiac disease and love that we can use this mix to still enjoy traditional dishes. —Bernice Fenskie, Wexford, Pennsylvania

    Rosemary- I am unable to eat any veggies/fruits belonging to the nightshade family, which includes potatoes, (not sweet potatoes) tomatoes, eggplant, all peppers, goji berries, tomatillos, and ashwaghanda, to name a few. I also have celiac disease, so I generally use arrowroot powder in place of potato starch. It does take a little experimentation to get the texture you want, (and honestly, with GF baking you sometimes will NEVER get it to be like a wheat flour texture) but you can find something that works well enough, and be thrilled that you get to have a nice treat once in a while! This recipe seems to work fairly well with arrowroot powder/starch. I hope this helps!

    Can anyone provide a gluten-free flour mix without potato starch or potato flour? I have a worse problem with white potatoes than I do with wheat gluten. Many people have problems with white potatoes and don't know it.

    Does any know if replacing part of the white rice flour with sweet rice flour would work?

    Can you just substitute this flour mixture for regular flour when baking cakes, muffins, cookies and bread?

    I made a double batch of the flour mix. I baked the Biscuits For Two Recipe from Taste of substituting the flour with the Gluten-Free Flour Mix. They turned out delicious.Thanks for sharing this recipe, Bernice.

    I haven't used this yet - but was glad to find it. For those as new to GF baking as I am, it is helpful to know that Potato starch flour means potato starch. Helpful. since potato starch and potato flour are not the same thing. Hope that helps someone! I'll let you know how my bread turns out.

    My Fiance has developed a gluten-sensativity this last year. I've used the pre-made all-purpose flours from the grocery store, but most had an weird taste to me. This is the only flour that I use when I cook/bake now! Its' awesome!

    Interesting recipe. Thanks, Bernice, for submitting it. I am trying to go wheat-free since learning from my reading that modern wheat is nothing like that of our ancestors and is responsible for the huge rise in celiac disease and obesity. In searching xanthan gum on the web (see other reviews), I found that xanthan gum is a fermented corn-based product, whereas guar gum is from a legume. Both can be used in gluten-free cooking, but measure carefully! I plan to look for all of these ingredients (flours and gums) on my next trip to the health food grocery store. Thanks TOH for a fabulous website.
