Gluten Free Cake Flour Blend


I use this gluten free cake flour blend for all of my cakes and muffins, now. Regular cake flour contains a little less protein than typical all-purpose flour and a tiny bit more than pastry flour.

  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch

Step 1

Mix all ingredients well by whisking and shaking.

For best results sift together one to two times.

If you are making a yellow or white cake you may consider using more white rice flour in place of the brown rice flour, as the mix above makes it a tiny bit brown. Though sorghum is a bit on the brown side, this recipe uses very little and does not effect the yellow color of cake

. If using this gluten free cake flour blend to substitute regular all-purpose flour in a recipe I suggest baking at 350°F, no matter what the recipe calls for, and adding a bit more fat: oil, butter, etc.
