Whole Wheat Pastry Flour Substitution?
0

13 posts in this topic

Hi all! Has anyone found a decent substitute for whole wheat pastry flour? My favorite recipe calls for it but I don't know if the general substitution of say, Red Mill baking mix is sufficient. Anyone have any advice? thanks!

Sorghum is the best replacement, IMHO. Or you could try almond meal if it is a small percentage of the total flour. I find it gives a good flavor and some fiber and protein.

I would also suggest sorghum, or 3 parts sorghum and one part starch (corn, potato, and/or tapioca.) Possibly a little xanthan or guar gum.

Whatcha' makin'?

pumpkin cake! :)

I'd swear there were more replies to this but I kept getting a database error. I had planned to use Bob's Red Mill gluten-free All purpose Mix, and was trying to determine how much sorghum, ratio wise. 3 parts to 1 Mix, maybe?

the recipe also calls for some oats, but I was wondering if buckwheat flour might do for a substitution?

I bet I end up with something completely different :rolleyes:

For oats, you can use quinoa flakes.

If you could show us the recipe, that would help.

The board was down for a while, and we lost some stuff. You're not imagining things.

good idea. here it is:

cake:

2 C. whole wheat pastry flour

1 1/2 C. oats

1 T. baking powder

1 T. cinnamon

1 1/2 t. ginger

1/2 t. nutmeg

1/2 t. salt

1/2 C. butter

1 1/2 C sugar

3 large eggs, beaten

1 3/4 C. pumpkin.

streusel topping:

1/2 C. Whole wheat pastry flour

1/2 C. oats

1/4 C. sugar

1/4 C. brown sugar

4 T. butter, melted

I found this substitution for the streusel (from the book Cooking Free):

2 T brown rice flour

1/4 C brown sugar

1/2 t. cinnamon

1 T. Canola oil

I hadn't thought to use quinoa for the oats, I was thinking buckwheat, but I'll take any suggestions on the substitutions. I LOVE this cake and it kills me I can't eat it! (and I don't have other intolerances, like dairy or anything).

anyone have any ideas?

How about chopped macadamia nuts or chopped pecans? I always put nuts in my stuesel topping.

And you could put flax in whatever flour you use for extra fiber to mimic the whole wheat flour perhaps...

I've also used the quinoa flakes in my apple crisp and struesel toppings, although now I use gluten-free oats. They're controversial and not for everyone.

Another question, sorry!. How do I go about using the quinoa, esp as a substitute for oats? B/c what I've tried...looks really odd adn I'm pretty sure the end result is going to suck. Cyberprof, I might add some nuts next time, I do enjoy them!

You can't use straight quinoa grain, you need to use quinoa FLAKES. They usually work quite well. And a lot of things won't look the way you're used to, try to judge based on flavor and texture. Two tbsp of flax seed will help any quick bread with a flavor strong enough to hide it, will help hold it together.

For your recipe, I would do:

Cake:

1 cup sorghum

1/2 cup pancake/baking mix

1/2 cup arrowroot starch

1/2 cup tapioca starch

1 cup quinoa flakes

2 tsp Xanthan gum

rest the same

(You'll notice I've reduced the amount of quinoa flakes, the flavor can be overpowering)

For topping-1/2 cup sorghum, 1/2 cup quinoa flakes.

This is just what I would do, see how yours turns out!

ok, another question, so sorry! Where do I find the flakes, as opposed to the grain? I've seen quinoa flour in the store. Sorry for the confusion, I haven't had much dealings with quinoa and what I tried yesterday with the grains....just yuck. totally botched it up. thank you so much for the help, maybe I can work this thing right eventually!

You might want to start with gluten-free recipes that other poeple have come up with, instead of starting out converting your own recipes. You'll get a better feel for how the flours work together, whether butter or oil is better in a recipe, how much egg to use, whether to overmix a batter or just barely mix it. You will find with almost all gluten-free recipes that once the batter or dough is mixed, its best to let it sit for a few minutes, even ten or twenty. some find that this causes the finished product to 'fall' after baking, but I find that it kills the girtty texture you can get with gluten-free flours. And avoid bean flours for now, they taste funny.

hmm, good ideas, thanks! I've been both using others and adapting for a while but this one is just killing me. I made two different gluten-free pumpkin cake recipes this weekend, one from Karina the Gluten Free Goddess whom I usually have good luck with for recipes, but it was just the blandest thing ever (and I'm known for being heavy with spices). Very discouraging but I'll keep pluggin away. thank you for all the help!

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.
    • to biopsy or not?
      You are MOST welcome! No problem with making these recipes. If you just follow the directions they lay out, you will be absolutely fine! BTW, I chose to make everything using the flour blend they give you the recipe for. It really is better than the pre-made flours you can buy. To make things easier, I make a double batch of the flour blend and put it in a BIG tupperware (plastic) container & keep in the fridge. That way when I go to make anything I just scoop out the amount I need. Secondly, get yourself a cheap little kitchen scale. I got this one & it works great. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007TCFE0I?psc=1 Mine doesn't have the removable glass or the kitchen timer but otherwise is just like this one. This one is more like the one I got http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Digital-Kitchen-Capacity-Elegant/dp/B002IR6OP8 Weighing out your ingredients makes a huge difference & really it's so much easier than measuring everything in measuring cups. As far as the coffee cake recipe..... I changed it a little bit so it would be like a gluten coffee cake I used to make & we loved. It turns out a little more healthy as well with dried fruit I put in it. I didn't make the topping that they do. These are the changes I made. In the batter, instead of the 1 Tblsp. of cinnamon I used 1 teaspoon. In the batter, I added dried apricots & raisins --- I do it by feel so I will say about 1/2 cup of each maybe a tad more.  My Topping: Then in a separate bowl I put about 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon, about 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar, and some melted butter. Mix the dry ingredients & pour the butter in mixing the mixture with your fingers. You want the mixture crumbly yet moist. Put the batter in the oven for 5 min. & then take out & crumble the topping on top, then it all goes back in the oven & bake according to directions in the recipe. You could add nuts, dried dates, any dried fruits or nuts you like!   Finally, you owe it to yourself to get some really good pans. This for loaves of bread as gluten free bread requires the extra height & support these pans give. You won't have to use parchment paper or make the tin foil collar which is a pita. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/bread-loaf-pan-9-x-4-x-4 These are great for making the dinner roll recipe into burger buns: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/individual-pie-and-burger-bun-pan
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.

      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
