Gluten Free Plain Flour

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Chrissyo

Try to use a fine ground rice flour as a courser ground rice flour will give you a course texture in your cooked products. Handy hint: Avoid over-cooking gluten free cakes, as this makes them very dry.

This flour comes very, very close to the commercial gluten free mixes. As always, adding a little bit of Xantham Gum makes it even better. Beware though that you want to use "potato starch" - our local bulk food store also sells "potato flour" which is heavier and coarser - resembling flakes for mash. Don't use that, but the fine, white potato starch and you'll be fine.
