Success! Sweet sorghum flour- I really like it. Anybody else ever try baking with it? I have tried every kind of bean, potato, tapioca, etc. Finally, something I like!

I love sorghum and use it in all my flour mixes. I also use quite a bit of buckwheat. :)

I'm a big fan of sorghum. A combination of sorghum, millet, and potato starch (not flour) is my favorite for baking. I can't stand the smell or taste of tapioca starch in baked goods and am not a big fan of bean flours (although I love beans on their own).

Great, will have to check some out. So far I've found I can use bean flour as a great replacement in frying and making roux where you're actually looking for a proteiny taste but when it comes to lighter more delicate flavors it is way too overpowering. Shame though because the strength of it's quite nice.

One of the biggies in my cooking - between rice flour, sorghum, and millet, I really don't miss "normal" flour all that much!

The only problem I have is how MANY flours I have :lol: . All the individual flours, a couple of pre-mixed personal blends, all those canisters....:rolleyes: Guar gum, xanthan gum, baking soda and powder, gelatin, ascrobic acid....Glad I have a big pantry :lol: Just freed up a canister because I am ditching quinoa - BAD reaction to some quinoa crackers. Although I never used much of it I figure I am better off without it -- too high in lectins :P

My husband who is not gluten free, just eats all my baked goods that way, likes the sorghum mix I use now better than rice based mixes. I also make pancakes with 1/2 brown rice flour and buckwheat flour that we love.

I love sorghum too. I have millet, sweet rice flour, potato starch and some mixes like Bob's Red Mill and Pamela's bread mix.

By the way, sorghum beer rocks.
