If you are someone who can not eat sorghum, finding gluten free flour blends is a real challenge. Sorghum flour seems to be in most commercially sold blends. I created a simple, homemade gluten-free flour blend without sorghum flour so you can enjoy gluten free baking again.
Several of my readers emailed me to ask if I knew of any sorghum-free gluten free flour blends. I searched and found two flour blends, including GF Jules and Cup4Cup (but note this blend has dairy!) It never occurred to me that some people are sorghum intolerant, so I wanted to come up with a fantastic gluten free flour blend recipe they could make and use in my recipes.
I am still testing this blend, so please note at the end of this post I include a list of recipes I have tested. If you test one of my recipes with this blend, PLEASE comment or email me and let me know how it turned out.
I have lots of great Gluten Free Baking Resources to help you become an expert in gluten free baking. There are three main binders in gluten free baking. Find out more about How Binders Work in Gluten Free Baking. You have the option of using any of these in this flour blend recipe.
This flour blend is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, corn-free, and soy-free.
If you are interested in my other gluten free flour blend recipes, I have a DIY Gluten Free Flour Blend, which is also gum-free, and a Gluten Free Rice-Free Flour Blend. If you are looking for whole grains, try my Gluten Free Whole Grain Flour Blend recipe.
- Brown Rice Flour
- White Rice Flour
- Potato Starch
- Tapioca Starch
- Xanthan Gum or Psyllium Husk
- Mix the flours very thoroughly multiple times. Use a whisk, then a spoon, then whisk again.
- Once you do the above mixing, add the flour to a large zip bag. Seal the bag, then shake it for 2 minutes so that you know it is perfectly blended.
Important Baking Tip!
This flour blend is very rice-heavy. This means it can have a gritty texture in baked goods. To combat this problem, let the batter sit for 20-30 minutes. This gives the rice in the flour blend time to soften, eliminating the grit.
Recipe Step-By-Step Directions:
Add all of the flour to a large
I give options for using psyllium husk powder or xanthan gum, depending on which you want to use. In my test recipes, I have used psyllium husk powder.
Store the flour in a large, airtight container or gallon-sized zipper bag. (If you use a zip bag, squeeze the extra air out.
I recommend putting a piece of masking tape (easy to remove) with the date you made the flour. Put the tape onto the bag or container.
This will keep fresh in the pantry for up to 2 months. Store in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 6 months. (If you refrigerate or freeze your flour, it is very important to let it warm to room temperature before using it…otherwise, it can mess with your measurements due to moisture.)
Recipes Tested With This Flour:
Gluten-Free Biscuits – This flour did very well in my classic gluten-free biscuit recipe!
My Gluten-Free Muffin Test – I used my muffin recipe and made chocolate chip muffins with this flour. They taste delicious. NOTE: I recommend adding 2 TBSP more flour if you use this blend in my muffin recipe.
