The following GF flour blend recipe is the one I have tripled and kept in an airtight container to be used in place of regular flour. It has been truly amazing and I imagine you can adapt it, as I have seen numerous permutations on the net. For cakes, you will find that using the Thai Rice Flour brands that I have pictured below are important for fine texture. You will find the 3 Elephants Brand rice flours in Asian markets. They are really cheap. You can buy a whole bunch at once and blend up your mix. For the other starches, I believe brands are not as important.
CAKEBRAIN'S FAVOURITE GF FLOUR BLEND RECIPE:
2 1/4 cups superfine Thai Rice Flour (Asian market)
1/4 cup potato starch
2/3 cup tapioca starch
3/4 cup sweet rice flour (Thai brands are best)
1/3 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons xanthum gum
- In a large airtight container, combine the flours together well. I use a large wire whisk to mix the flours thoroughly. Be particularly vigilant about distributing the xanthum gum as it is a small quantity compared to the rest of the flours.
- Use this GF Flour Blend in place of regular cake flour or all-purpose flour.
- You do not have to worry about sifting as it's not lumpy
- You do not have to worry about overbeating as there's no gluten to develop.
