GF "Quickbread" Flour

In another fit of "make your own ingredients" madness, I decided to whip up a big batch of gluten free flour blend today. I used Cara Reed's recipe, more or less, tweaking here or there depending on what I could readily find and access in my pantry (let's just say it needs a bit of cleaning!). I've already used small batches of it to make killer muffins, and since it seems to maintain a soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture I've dubbed it my go-to "quickbread" or "muffin" flour mix. Stay tuned tomorrow for those muffins - that is, if our power doesn't go out again with the late Summer storms!

GF "Quickbread" Flour
Makes 9 cups
2 cups brown rice flour
1 cup quinoa flour (I've used half millet or teff flour here too)
3 cups sorghum flour
1 ½ cups potato starch (not potato flour)
¾ cup tapioca starch / flour
¾ cup arrowroot flour
pinch ground ginger (this helps with final texture in batters... don't know why but it does!)
  1. Whisk all ingredients together. Store in an airtight container.
