|Blueberry apple black currant pie I made with this flour mix, |
my second pie with the mix
But I was asked to please make this blueberry pie with a good crust, even if it is gluten free. So I searched and searched the internet, and found a recipe, which came out terrifically, which I'll hopefully post either tomorrow or sunday. But it used this wonderful all purpose gluten free flour mix, different from my typical all purpose gluten free flour mix.
And the mix is really amazing- I even used it to make French bread- whose recipe I'll post as soon as I experiment with an egg free version.
But in the meantime, here's the mix, which I originally found on SimplyGluten-Free.com
9 cups superfine white rice flour
3 cups sweet rice flour
4 cups potato starch
2 cup tapioca starch
8 teaspoons xanthan or guar gum
1. Mix all the flours together.
2. Use in place of wheat flour in most recipes.
Note: Sweet rice flour is also called sticky rice flour or glutinous rice flour or mochiko, and despite the name, contains no gluten. If you have your own grinder, you can make your own from short grain white rice/risotto rice.
There really is no point in buying premixed gluten free flour mix- this works even better!
If you're a gluten free baker and have a standard mix, what is in your mix? Does this look like a recipe you'd try out?
