Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour

Published December 11, 2014

Makes about 12 cups
This is the workhouse flour blend for the “Gluten-Free Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day” recipes. It’s a blend of three gluten-free flours, plus a little xanthan gum and potato starch. This flour blend yields a dough that makes beautiful free-form loaves and baguettes. You can find these specialty flours in the natural food section of most grocery stores, and at Bob’s Red Mill.


  • 6 cups white rice flour
  • 3-1/4 cups sorghum flours
  • 1-3/4 cups tapioca flour or starch
  • 1-1/4 cups potato starch1/4 cup xanthan gum or ground psyllium husk

Whisk and mix the ingredients in a 5- to 6-quart lidded container. Finish by picking up the container and vigorously shaking until the flours are completely blended.
