A Life Saving Substitution: Gluten Free Flour Blend

Share Post:



There are many of you that are on a gluten free diet and, over the past year,  I have received many requests for good recipes using gluten free baked ingredients.  My biggest problem is that I won’t post anything that isn’t fabulous…


That means that I have tested a lot of recipes with gluten free blends and have made many (and I mean MANY) recipes with these blends.  Many (and I mean MANY) of the recipes have been nasty.


Jenn, a friend of mine who has been eating gluten free for a while now (mainly because of her son’s intolerance) bought a book and let me borrow it.


What happened after I poured through this great book?  I found the best gluten free flour blend out there!  It’s amazing!


It’s from America’s Test Kitchen (@testkitchen if you want to follow along on Twitter) and their Gluten Free book is great if you are following this diet.  I will let you all know how the pizza crust is (as some of you might know, making a great GF pizza crust has been the bane of my existence for a while!!!).  But, for now, here is the blend:




4 1/2 cups + 1/3 c white rice flour

1 2/3 cup brown rice flour

1 1/3 cup potato starch (don’t use potato flour)

3/4 cup tapioca starch (you can substitute tapioca flour)

3 tbsp non-fat milk powder


1.  Combine all ingredients in a large Ziploc bag (or large mason jar) and keep in a cool, dry place.
