Kim’s gluten free all purpose flour blend is perfect for cakes, cookies, quick breads, and anything else you’d want to make gluten free!
WHY IS KIM’S GLUTEN FREE ALL PURPOSE FLOUR BLEND IN GRAMS AND NOT CUPS?
I developed my blends in grams because it’s so much more precise AND unbelievably easy to weigh ingredients than to measure by volume. My blends don’t translate very well to cups. I sure don’t have an 18th of a cup measurement, do you? I strongly suggest you invest in a scale (they’re very cheap) and weigh your ingredients–you’d be surprised at how easy it is and you’ll most likely never switch back.
ISN’T IT CHEAPER TO USE A STORE BOUGHT BLEND?
I feel my own blends work best in my recipes, and are also so much cheaper than spending a fortune on a tiny bag of gluten free flour at the store. HOWEVER, for some of the recipes on my blog, a store bought blend may be substituted (I will state this in the individual recipe).
Cup4Cup, for instance, is a great store bought blend that can be used for most of my cake and cookie recipes and anything that is NOT bread. For my revolutionary bread flour blend, see this page here. The cost of it is outrageous, though, and to be honest, I think it has a little bit of a gritty texture. But it will sub fine in some of my recipes. Again, check each individual recipe for indications of this.
When making my gluten free all purpose flour blend, I mix it in a large lidded container in increments of about 10-20 cups, or 1.4 kilograms. My gluten free flour blend weighs more per cup than a regular wheat-based flour would (wheat-based flours weigh about 120 grams per cup, whereas my gf flours weigh 140 grams per cup).
The List of Ingredients
I use this flour blend mainly for cakes, cookies, some pastries, and most other desserts, pretty much anything that’s not yeast bread. Store bought Cup4Cup may be used as a substitute, but note that it is grainier than my blend and I haven’t tested my recipes with anything but my own blend. I often make 10-20 cups of each flour blend at a time and store it in a large container (because I do so much baking). All of the text in pink are clickable links to products I use.
