Now...that being said. I LOVE Sorghum. It's a nice dense flour that smells very "wheat" like. I use it as a base and mix with white rice or brown rice and different starches. Actually alot of the "brown" flour mixes use either Sorghum or Chickpea (Gram) flour.
Sorghum adds a bit of texture too.
I would not use ALL Sorghum though b/c it can have a heavy reaction, and it can start to have an odd taste. With the exception of bread (try Lorka150's Gluten Free Flax Bread from Allrecipes.com - just go to allrecipes and then type in Gluten Free Flax Bread and it brings it up), I like it best with sweet recipes...but have found with like biscuits/savory muffins, etc. that it's too sweet.

I also tried it in a smaller amount(1/4 c. instead of the garfava flour) in Lorka's bread recipie and didn't notice the flavor of sorghum standing out. It just made for a good balance. I usually use brown rice flour in this particular situation but I find it to be a little bitter.
