Trying To Recreate "nearly Normal" Flour W/ Expandex

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


I really love the "Nearly Normal" flour, but at $20+ for a 5 pound bag it is expensive! I have found an old recipe for it online:

1 cup white rice flour

1 cup potato starch (not potato flour)

1 cup cornstarch

1/2 cup corn flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour or tapioca starch

4 teaspoons xanthan gum

Now it contains Expandex. Does anyone have an updated recipe?

Thanks and Merry Christmas,

Katy and Olivia (Age 6)

I have bought Expandex a couple of times, but I really don't notice a difference when I use it in place of tapioca starch/flour. In fact I still even have some Expandex, but I never bother to grab it when I'm baking. :rolleyes: I think it is a waste of money. You're better off trying to buy the individual flours at a good price and then make your own blend.
