Hi there, i have bought this flour that is made with rice and potato starch, it has no xanthan gum or anything else added to it. I have read online that to make a successful loaf you need to add other ingredients. I don't necessarily want to make bread from this bread as I shall go and get a flour that is already mixed and ready, however i would like to make something from it without having to buy all these other ingredients! has anyone any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Just to clarify for people -

Are you asking about a already made bread like the title says? Or you asking about a flour mix you have purchased?

With any flour, wheat or otherwise, you would need something to make it rise like yeast or baking soda. Depending on what you are making, you might not need Xantham gum. You could probably make cookies or pancakes with a plain flour mix .

You could also make brownies with it.  White rice flour is used for tempura and is decent for lightly breading things before baking/frying (with Parmesan, herbs and spices for chicken, for example).  You can also use it for a roux or bechamel sauce or to thicken other sauces.


Karen is right - for most baking you would definitely need a higher-protein flour for cookies, muffins, cakes, etc. in addition to the white rice flour.
