I have tried various recipes for gluten-free flour blends. Many use sorghum flour as the main ingredient, but I find that has a bitter taste and requires a lot of additional sugar. I developed the following mix for gluten-free baking.
For one cup of gluten-free mix:
- ½ cup potato starch (not potato flour)
- ¼ cup tapioca starch
- 2 tbsp amaranth or millet flour (Millet is roughly one third the price of amaranth. It is not as nutritious, but is more readily available.)
- 2 tbsp sorghum flour
I tend to mix these flours in food processor. The flours do not puff into the air as much, but are still well-blended. The food processor also grinds the flours a bit more and helps eliminate lumps in the potato starch.
