I'm assuming that eggs and chocolate are okay? I made a chocolate cake a few weeks ago using sorghum instead of rice flour and it turned out great. It's the recipe from this website. For the flour mix I make up 3 C Sorghum flour, 1 C Potato starch, 1/2 C Tapioca starch, then measure out from that.

thanks! Do you use that baking mix alot? I mean is it a good substitute for any flour in a recipe? And yes, eggs and chocolate ok so far....My littlest one just turned 1 yesterday and I hav a 2 1/2 year old that I am considering going gluten-free for as well. and i find looking for stuff like bread and just basics like that is a real pain. Especially for picky eaters! i will try the cake, thanks again!

I would try substituting normal gluten free recipes with sorghum or amaranth flour for the rice flour. Rice flour is not that good for you anyway. Both flours have a good taste, but sorghum will be a little lighter in texture.

Teff flour is also a good baking flour, the more different flours you put in a recipe, typically, the better it performs.

I use sorghum flour sometimes for a change. It works well in things like chocolate cake and pancakes, but my kids aren't totally thrilled with it for cookies. I kind of like it because it has a kind of nutty taste that's different than rice. There's a recipe on here somewhere for sorghum bread. We all loved the taste, but it fell in the oven, as does every loaf of bread I've tried lately does.
