    Maria's Bread Flour Mix (Gluten-Free)

    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.

    I have discovered that I am gluten intolerant by talking to my friend. I have to begin my journey and it seems scary. I will try to make bread with Maria's . I will let you know.

    I did ground my own flour for this recipe using a coffee grinder. Not very quick but OK. I also omit xanthan gum as I didn't have any.The taste is actually very good, the dough unfortunately collapsed as expected without xanthan so I baked longer, about 65min 190degreeC. Still useable. I will try this again properly another time. As I said. it has very good taste.

    I'm a little late in rating this recipe. I found it way back in 2003 when I was first getting started as a personal chef. The recipe was to be the beginning of a productive and successful career specializing in special diets. The lady at MY FIRST dinner party who, in tears, hugged me afterward and said, "I haven't had real bread in so long. You have no idea what this means to me" had me hooked. I used this recipe--and have used it many times since--to make a focacica bread that night. Glad to see the website has grown and that this recipe is still here for others to use.

  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
