Carol Fenster’s Sorghum Flour Blend

I enjoy using Sorghum Four in many of my recipes and am always looking for new things to use it in. Recently, I found this little tidbit on Gluten free Gobsmacked. I just “puffy heart” Kate’s website. She has some awesome recipes and some deelish pics as well. I just know her soon-to-be, new little one is gonna enjoy eating what momma makes. Kate and her beloved are in the process of adopting a little cutie and we are all awaiting her arrival with anticipation.
Well, anyway, back to the recipe….

1 ½ cups sorghum flour
1 ½ cups potato starch or cornstarch
1 cup tapioca flour
½ cup corn flour or almond flour or bean flour or chestnut flour

Gluten Free Flour Baking Mix (Bette Hagman’s ?)

I don’t know if you are like me, but it seems that I will find some awesome recipe online to try and then it will call for something like 1 1/2 cups Bette Hagman’s Flour Mix. Being new to the “Gluten Free Loop” I was clueless. So, after digging around for a cool recipe, I would get disappointed and just forget it.
Well, long story short… the other day, it dawned on me. “Why didn’t I ever just dig around and find the darn flour mix?”
So, I did and then I adjusted/changed it to add the xanthan gum so I don’t have to try to remember to add that… and now it is on my blog, so I will NEVER lose the recipe again. LOL

Gluten Free Flour Mix ~ Bette Hagman’s (I think?)

Brown Rice Flour ~ 6 cups (i think Bette Hagman’s is supposed to be just plain white rice flour, but I like brown and it works fine)
Potato Flour ~ 2 cups
Tapioca Starch ~ 1 cup
Xanthan gum ~ 9 tsps. (one per cup of flour)

Use cup for cup for regular flour.

Substitute for Gluten Free Pamela’s Mix

Here is a little replacement for Pamela’s Baking Mix, brought over from our old site….Hope you enjoy 🙂

Fake Pamela’s Gluten Free Baking Mix

1 1/4 cups Brown Rice Flour
1 3/4 cups White Rice Flour ( I have also used Superfine White Rice Flour)
2/3 cup Cultured Buttermilk (in a pinch, Powdered/Dry Milk works too)
1 cup Almond Meal or Almond flour
3/4 cup Tapioca Starch
3/4 cup Sweet Rice Flour
1/2 cup Potato Starch
3 Tablespoons baking powder
2 Tablespoon Baking Soda
1 tablespoon Sea Salt
3 tsp Xanthan Gum

sift together and store in a container or zip lock bag.

This keeps for quite a few months, in a closed container. I keep mine in the fridge or freezer. You can use it just like bisquick or in place of Pamelas mix in all recipes. I also found that it works well in recipes that call for Gluten Free Flour Mix (just watch if it has baking powder/ soda in the recipe and make adjustments)

I use this in a lot of my old recipes as a 1:1 with the exception of making baking soda/powder adjustments.
