    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    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!!!!!!

    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

    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.
