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 Home.com 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.

Just so you all know, xanthan gum contains wheat... therefor not wheat free

Excellent mix. I add a couple of tablespoons of xanthan gum to the mix, though. Made muffins and cornbread so far with this mix and both have gobbled up!!

This seems to be the best GF flour mix for baked goods that I have tried since my son was diagnosed with Celiac disease. You must use xanthan gum with it, however. Different amounts depending on what you are baking. I just use this flour mix & the xanthan gum in place of regular flour in my tried & true recipes for cakes, cookies, muffins, etc. that call for regular wheat flour.
