    The problem with rice flours is their coarse, rather gritty grind. This does not work well in most baking. I use a mix of 3 cups sorghum flour, 3 cups cornstarch, 2 cups tapioca flour and 1 cup of almond flour which I find works extremely well. Because of the almond flour it does need to be refrigerated. It does not have the gritty texture that comes with rice flours or the "off" taste of bean flours and the sorghum adds some nutritional value to your baking.

     

    If you want to prepare less flour blend, it can easily be cut in half, but I like to prepare plenty so it is ready to use whenever I do my baking.

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.
