This is the all-purpose flour blend from the Gluten-Free Girl. She weighs the ingredients, making it easier to make substitutions. Just replace an equal weight starch for starch or flour for flour. Her post about this blend can be found here.
I have tried many gf blends, and they all work fairly well, but they have been too whole grain tasting for my taste, or the other extreme, and basically all starch with virtually no nutritional value. This seems like a nice balance.
Weighing might seem like a pain, but it really is easy. Just get an inexpensive kitchen scale with a reset or tare option, so you can clear the scale between measuring ingredients.
I am very fortunate to live within in driving distance of Bob’s Red Mill and because it is a local company their products are available to me at my local grocery stores. I realize not everyone can just pick up these ingredients, but they can be ordered directly from Bob’s website or other sources, like Amazon. Arrowroot starch/flour is extremely expensive when purchased in those spice-sized bottles, but rather inexpensive when purchased in larger quantities like this.
200 grams superfine brown rice flour
150 grams sorghum flour
50 grams potato flour
250 grams sweet rice flour
150 grams potato starch
100 grams arrowroot powder
100 grams cornstarch
Combine all the ingredients in a resealable container and shake to combine. I always shake the blend before using, to make sure the flours are well mixed.
