8 Flours and Starches
We have so many flour options to choose from it can be overwhelming. I started with the flours and starches most commonly called for in gluten free recipes. That included the rice flours (white, brown and sweet) plus three starches (cornstarch, tapioca and potato).
Then I included sorghum flour and millet flour to make eight items. These two flours aren’t as common (I’d never even heard of them when I started gluten free baking) but they’re the ingredients that really transformed my baking. I now use them both in my homemade flour mix but remember, no one flour is absolutely necessary.
Organize For Success – Print It!
I call this table a downloadable Gluten Free Flour Guide and I’ve got two suggestions for using it. Print both pages and tape it to the inside of a cupboard door where you can easily refer to it. Or print it back to back, put it in a plastic sleeve and keep it with your flour. Either way you want it to be convenient to look at when you’re baking.
