As any baker knows, flour is an essential ingredient used in most dishes. Until recently, it’s been challenging to find flours for those who want to make gluten-free baked goods at home. Many stores carry different varieties of gluten-free flour, but they can sometimes be pricey. Today a home baker can easily make a gluten-free flour blend that is healthy, tasty and affordable. Carlyn Berghoff, owner of The Berghoff Restaurant and author of Cooking For Your Gluten-Free Teen, has a deliciously simple recipe for mixing your own gluten-free flour at home.
- 1 (24-ounce) bag Bob’s Red Mill brown rice flour (about 5 cups)
- 1 (22-ounce) bag Bob’s Red Mill sweet sorghum flour (about 5 cups)
- 1 (20-ounce) bag Bob’s Red Mill tapioca flour (also known as starch) about 5 cups
- 5 tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill xanthan gum
Open all three bags of flour and dump them into a 6-quart bowl. Add the xanthan gum.
Mix well by first using a large silicone spatula, turning over flour from the bottom. Then use a large whisk to blend the ingredients.
Store in a large plastic container with a tight-fitting lid.
