Readers Respond: What Gluten-Free Flour Blend Do You Use Most Often?

Responses: 21


Updated November 22, 2009

Gluten-free flours work better when used in combination. Many commercial gluten-free flour blends are available, or you can buy the individual flours and make your own mix. What gluten-free flour blend(s) have you had good luck with?

Please remember! Suggestions from others can be helpful, but comments from readers are not double-checked for accuracy. Make sure to research any suggestions before putting them to use, and always double-check the gluten-free status of any recommended product.

Gluten Free Flour Favorite

I love Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten Free flour. It is simply amazing and I can substitute it in anything with ease. It is made in Oregon, but I know it can be found online. They not only have all-purpose flour, but many different flours, mixes, soups, etc that are GF.

Just made a loaf of bread with Jules new GF flour for my partner who has given up bread because she HATES any GF breads I have made over the last year. She LOVES this bread and just had eggs and toast for the first time in a long time with the response of "YUMMY!" Get the receipe from her new books. I have the older books, but ordered the ebook with the new flour. That was the winning combo! Looking for a receipe with this flour to make homemade pasta next! Anybody have one. She can't stand the producys we have tried and very expense and wasteful!

Sinking Cupcake remedy

I found that using baking powder instead of using baking soda, and doubling the amount called for in my gluten recipe, gave my cupcakes the same rise as my gluten cupcakes.

I'm brand new at this gluten free stuff. Is anyone out there making their own matzah? It would help me greatly to have a gluten free recipe for matzah well before passover so that I can experiment a little with products and recipes. Thank you.

Complicated flour mix?

I have issues with corn, sorghum, millet, teff, rice, as well as wheat/gluten. I'm trying to come up with a flour mix using flours of hemp, quinoa, tapioca, coconut and/or arrowroot starch. Trying to avoid potato, bean and soy flours as I tend to have mild issues with them too. Any ideas? Thanks.

Sinking cupcakes

I've used Better Baking GF flour and Pamelas but not getting good results. My cupcakes sink. Any suggestions?

Better Batter

I've tried this as a direct 1-1 sub in many of my old favorite recipes with excellent results. I don't use anything else now.

What to sub for gums?

I also have a sensitivity (bloating, discomfort,etc.) to these GUMS (guar & xantham). Does anyone know a substitute for them or are they really necessary?

Mrs (or just 'Diana); not a member

I mix rice,flour, pounded yam, potato flour, buckwheat, mung flour, cassava flour, corn flour -and use it like ordinary flour for most purposes, I don't measure each of these in my flour bin, just dump them in pretty much at random only being sure to mix at least 3 of these every time. Sometimes I add hemp flour and, for particular recipes, finely ground almonds, hazel nuts or other nuts - with a note on the buffet/serving plate (if I have guests) telling them 'this is not nut free'.

Hodgson Mill

I had to make a diet change after discovering food allergies and discovered Hodgson Mill products. Visit their website , order direct and find it in most stores. Very convenient for the busy lifestyle. Thanks for sharing what others have tried.

Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour

I used other flours for ten years and then discovered this one. I've tried them all and this is the best. It is formulated to work exactly like regular flour so I no longer need to mix a few flours or add xantham gum, and it is absolutely the best tasting.

Jules Flour Mix

We always have Jules Gluten Free flour on hand and use is for everything! Our entire household is gluten free so it's really been a lifesaver that we can still make all our favorite recipes with great taste and texture (made with Expandex and xanthan gum.) I've tested many flours and this has been my clear favorite.

Jules' Nearly Normal Flour

I always use Jules' Nearly Normal flour. It's complete, I don't have to add binder, and the results are fabulous! Even my non-celiac friends prefer my baked goods with this flour.

replacement flour

I switched most of my baking to Jules Shepherd's flour blend. You can purchase it through JulesGlutenFree.com. It seems to be the best substitute, yet for replacing wheat. It's amazing!
—Guest Cathy

Domata Living Flour is the greatest

I found this through the company that I use for Gluten Free oats. It is a separate company and in my area I have to have it shipped but it is great and I use it cup for cup like regular wheat flour in my recipes. My husband is quite happy as he can again enjoy all the wonderful foods he had been missing. Another thing is that the Xanthan Gum is already included which is handy. The ingredients: Rice Flour, Corn Starch, Tapioca Dextrin (Flour), Xanthan Gum. Believe me this is a great product and I am ordering the 3rd 25lb. bag. They also have seasoned flour and a pizza flour as well. www.shop.domatalivingflour.com Try it and see. I also feel it is less expensive even with shipping than all the prepaid mixes and small bags of flour.
