Recipes for GFBL Plain Flour Blend

posted in: News, Recipes | 9

We are so happy with our new gluten free plain flour blend that we wanted to share with you some basic recipes for bread, cake, pastry and scones. Do let us know how you get on or any recipes that you have tried that have worked really well.

We developed this blend because we found that the widely available gluten free flours simply could not achieve the standards we aspired to. It is fine grained and not bitter at all – this translates into a mouth feel for your baking that has clean texture and structure.

The blend is made from tapioca, rice, potato, maize and sorghum flours and has a lovely golden colour.
The sorghum gives it a texture more like a conventional flour and helps to improve the fibre content.

It comes in 1.5kg bags is available from ian@glutenfreebaking.co.uk and costs £6.50 including postage and packing or £20 for 4 bags.

    Finally, I made the scones, evidence available here! https://goo.gl/photos/UU8nWej3ptpcdCWP6

    I used nutritional yeast instead of cheese, buckwheat instead of gram flour, chia instead of poppy seeds and raw milk + apple cider vinegar instead of buttermilk. Other than that I followed the recipe diligently 😉

    However . . . however, the outcomes remain delicious 🙂

    Hi there – wondered if you have a recipe for making soft bread rolls with your flour please? I attempted to make some today using your bread recipe but the mixture was ridiculously wet so I ended up adding loads more flour in order to be able to shape it into a roll shape. They look pretty horrible but actually they taste delicious! I obviously did something wrong though and am hopeful you might be able to help. By the way, the thing I already LOVE about your flour is that it doesn’t have that horrible bitter smell or taste (which I think comes from the buckwheat so many flour blends use) and that in itself is a huge success! Thanks a lot, Abi (www.gdfree.wordpress.com)

      Hi Abi,

      Apologies for taking so long to get back to you. I didn’t realise that there was a message!

      Thank you for saying such nice things about our flour.

      Soft bread rolls are tricky. I’ve got a recipe which I’ll email to you. Try putting a pan of water in the bottom of the oven and sprinkle them with flour before you bake them (they will look better). I have also used poached egg rings to help them keep their shape.

      Good luck!
