Hi all,

I'm going to experiment with some "regular" recipes and want to try the featherlight mix. Can I sub it straight across for the flour? Do I need to add xanthan gum or anything else? Can I use that particular mix with all baking recipes? If not, is there a better mix that I can use universally for cookies, cakes, crusts, muffins, biscuits, etc....

Thanks!!!

I subed that mix in a reg recipe for pumpkin bread with cream cheese and just added a tsp of xanthan gum. I don't see why you couldn't sub that into most recipes!! but you will always need to add xanthan gum!!!

How do I know how much to add?

I use featherlight flour mix for a lot of things I make. How much to use depends on what you are baking.

here's a few things I make - cups of flour, then tsp of Xanthan gum

cookies: 2 cups, 1/2 tsp

brownies: 1 1/3 cup, 1 tsp

pizza: 1 cup, 1 tsp

bread: 2 cups, 1 1/2 tsp

cake: 2 cups, 1 tsp

If you are not baking (like making a sauce) I would not use any Xanthan gum.

Here is another suggestion.... I now use betterbatter flour for all my old original wheat recipes without the addition of anything else. I love it..... www.betterbatter.org

Naomi the owner had some wonderful recipes on her site .She has a very good blog as well. But do try her flour.... perfect every time......

I have no part in the business , I'm just a satisfied customer.....
