  1. I hope so..following

  2. Also what about almond flour is it the same

  3. If it's a one-to-one flour blend you sure can. Almond flour is tricky. Hopefully somebody can give you a better answer.

  4. Cakes I found it fine but when making bread found it harder to worth with.

  5. I bought a gf flour mix that says on the bag 1-1 same as if it was all purpose flour.

  6. I use gluten free flour just as regular flour all the time. I use cup for cup all purpose or Pamela's Artisan.

  7. It's actually not a silly question at all! The different flours have different characteristics and you might need to add a binder like xanthan gum depending on what you're baking. Start off with some recipes on the internet until u get a feel for it.

  8. Where do you buy xanthine gum?

  9. I buy a 1 to 1 ratio gluten free baking flour has everything already in it

  10. Has anyone got a good bread recipe pls x

  11. I literally just googled this myself as I'm making my first gf cookies!

  12. I use gf self-raising flour the same way I use normal flour

  13. There's an amazing phillsbury gf flour at Walmart. Super easy to work with and can sub it cup for cup

  14. No. You would need to add 2 tsp of xanthugum (sp?) per cup. Unless it comes with it

  15. Buy the cup for cup brand which works great and no additional additions needed

  16. Most of the time but some recipes you might need to add a little xanthum gum – it's kind of trial an error but recipes w less eggs general need it as a binder since there is no gluten to hold it all together

  17. I have adjusted a recipe that's been going around for years and I love it. I use it like regular flour. 4 cups rice flour- 11/2 cup tapioca starch-11/2 cup cornstarch (or potato starch) 1 cup almond flour. I use zantham or guar only when making bread. Hope this helps.

  20. This is from the cookbook. Gluten-free girl every day

  21. Yes it takes more thickening agent usually tho if your backing or doing pizza

  22. A good food scale is a must. There's difference in weight Between the flours

  23. Good question! I wanted to know the same.

  24. I like cooking with oat flour, and it works great. Combining oat and buckwheat flour is tasty too, I prefer this to a packaged blend.

    My mom does for me

  25. Yes but I need to adjust the amount slightly

  26. I use gluten free all purpose flour the same but some
    Gf flours are not equal (eg coconut flour; almond flour). It might work but if you want a fluffy cake or muffin vs a firm cookie you might want to try different flours. I've found some bakeries sell gf all purpose flour and gf pastry flour. Slightly different ingredients for different purposes. But I find you can try each and see how you like them and I keep a few different ones on hand at home.

  27. Potato flour is another but I wouldn't use that for baking 🙂
