This recipe comes to us from Maria Oostveen. Her comments about it: My goal is to develop an all-purpose flour, that can be used for most baking purposes. I have not tested this version yet on anything else but bread and it compares 100% with regular light wheat bread. The first thing I made with it was the cheese sandwich I so badly craved and it was like heaven!! No comparison with ANY gluten-free bread I tried before, and I tried them all!!!!!!

Marias Bread Flour Mix (makes 9 cups = 3 loaves).

2 cups garfava or garbanzo-bean flour
1 cup sorghum flour
2 ¼ cups tapioca flour
2 ¼ cups arrowroot flour (starch)
1 cup rice flour
1 tablespoon potato starch
2 tablespoons potato flour
2 tablespoons xanthan gum
2 packages gelatin (unflavored)
¼ cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoon salt

Mix well and keep in an airtight container. You can use cornstarch instead of arrowroot. This was originally designed to bake at an altitude of 5000+ feet so you may need to make adjustments. Click here to see her Maria's Real gluten-free Light Wheat Bread recipe.
