2-1/4 c brown rice flour
3/4 c sweet rice flour
2/3 c tapioca starch flour
1/4 c potato starch flour
1/3 c cornstarch
2 tsp xanthan or guar gum
Use one cup of this flour for one cup of regular flour in recipes. To make your baked goods healthier and less dependent on refined carbohydrates, use this gluten-free flour for half the flour in a recipe, and use teff, quinoa, amaranth, or buckwheat flour for the other half of the flour in a recipe.
When using this mix as a flour substitute in baked goods, xanthan gum must be added to the batter. Xanthan gum is an elastic gluten replacement:
- bread: add 3/4 tsp xanthan gum per cup of flour mix
- cake: add 1/4 tsp xanthan gum per cup of flour mix
- cookies: no additional xanthan gum needed, since the flour mix contains a little already
