Best Gluten Free All-purpose Flour

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I just picked up a bag of Kinnickinnick (sorry if I spelled that wrong) Celiac Flour blend, and I can't wait to give it a try. Have any of you tried this one? Have you had fairly good results? Or do you prefer Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free flour?

I haven't had a piece of cake in a LONG time (I was avoiding white flour for a year and half before ten days ago when I figured out that all flour was making me sick.) So I can't wait to experiment! Any links to great gluten-free cake recipes (especially chocolate) would also be fantastic.

Thanks again all, you're great!

P.S. I've started a new blog about my new gluten-free life at: http://gloriousglutenfree.blogspot.com - I posted a delicious Veggie Chili recipe today that I made up last night. Really REALLY yummy for anyone in your family, whether they're gluten-free or not!

I buy many Bob's Red Mill products, but I despise their gluten free flour mix. It has garbanzo bean flour which my family dislikes. It has a very strong bean taste in my opinion. Pamela's makes a pretty good flour mix and is available at many health food stores.

I cook and bake a lot so I make my own flour mix:

1 cup cornstarch

1 cup tapioca starch/flour

1 cup rice flour

1 TBSP potato starch.

I buy my flours in bulk and make up about 12 cups at a time. You can also buy in bulk at amazon and Bob's Red Mill.

My current favorite all purpose flour mix is Syvan Border Farms. It has performed wonderfully in everything I have tried. I add tapioca flour to it for some things like bread and pizza dough. I buy it in bulk at amazon .com.

I don't care much for the Bob's redmill all purpose flour either, but I think it is more the grainy texture that I object to rather than the flavor.

Hi Everyone - I am new to being "gluten free" and am trying to learn about the different flours, especially all-purpose. Has anyone heard of cup for cup (c4c)?

The ingredients are: Cornstarch, white rice flour, brown rice flour, milk powder, tapioca flour, potato starch, xanthan gum.

Thanks,

Jen

I use Cup-4-Cup (William Sanoma) all the time. I subistitute it directly for regular flour. Recently I have made pie crust, cheese straws and fritcake cookies that all turned out great. The only draw back is the price, but I only do a lot of baking at the holidays so it is not a real problem.

Yes, I have heard great things about it but cannot get it where I live. It is a pretty typical mix with the extra bonus of milk powder.

My favourite blends are those that do not use a lot of white rice flour as I like to use those that contain nutrients. Rather than purchase blends I make my own. Favourite starches of mine are sorghum, amaranth, garfava, purple yam, millet, ivory teff, quinoa, fine brown rice, chickpea, yellow corn flour and buckwheat. I will post my favourite blends a bit later today when I have more time...

If you try c4c let us know how it behaves!

    Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation.  However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to wear those soaking-wet clothes while I drove the 45 minutes it took me to get home --- I will NEVER forgot the misery and agony of that drive!  I could just barely keep the car under control, in fact.
    Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious.  I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease or DH.  Yeah, admittedly I was rather stressed out for a couple of days two weeks  ago or so, but I am significantly settled down now, even while negotiating the nutritional maze of trying to manage two
Water?! That's… unreasonably inconvenient. Did it happen with sweat?
