A good gluten free baking flour mix is necessary for delicious baked good. Whether you’re making cakes, cookies, muffins or scones, you need a flour mix that is light, yet sticky enough to hold the baking together.
Unless the recipe calls for a specific flour, most of the baked goods on Fermenting For Foodies are based on this homemade gluten free baking flour mix. Gluten free bread is something completely different. I recommend using a gluten free bread flour mix.Print
Homemade Gluten Free Baking Flour Mix
Looking for a good homemade gluten free baking flour mix? This mix is perfect for pastries, cakes, cookies and muffins. Try it with your favorite flours for your own favourite combination.
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Total Time: 5 minutes
- Yield: 5 cups 1x
- Cuisine: Gluten Free
- 2 1/2 cups gluten free flour (see notes)
- 1 1/2 cup potato starch
- 1 cup tapioca starch
- 2 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
- Combine the flours and xanthan gum in a large container and mix thoroughly.
- This recipe can be doubled or tripled to make a large batch of flour. Just measure out several batches of the mix, layering them in a large container so that it’s easy to mix. For example I don’t recommend adding 5 cups of GF flour on the bottom of a container followed by the starches, rather measure 2 1/2 cups of flour, then the starches followed by another 2 1/2 cups of flour. Otherwise it’s hard to get everything well mixed.
- This mix is best for baked goods (cakes, cookies, muffins, etc.) If you want to make bread, then I suggest using a gluten free bread flour mix.
- The main gluten free flour can be any grain-based flour. If you want a white flour blend, then use white rice flour. For a wholegrain flour blend then you can use: brown rice flour, buckwheat flour, millet flour, oat flour, quinoa flour, sorghum flour or teff flour (affiliate links.) I usually use oat flour or brown rice flour for my baked goods.
- I have suggested my favourite starch mix, however you could replace either of the starches with arrowroot flour or cornstarch.
