Struggling to find a gluten free flour blend that is FAILSAFE and made with easy to find ingredients? Silvana’s All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour Blend is hands down THE BEST gluten free flour mix that I’ve used.
Something I struggled with early on in my FAILSAFE journey was finding a gluten free flour blend that didn’t trigger a reaction AND consistently worked well in baked goods. The first few I tried were heavy on the baking powder and tasted bitter. Another one had chickpea flour in it, which gave me side pains. The commercial varieties use brown rice flour (which I can’t tolerate) and enrich it with vitamins and minerals (that I also can’t tolerate).
And then I stumbled upon the all-purpose gluten free flour blend from Silvana’s Kitchen. I was skeptical at first, thinking how could something with so few ingredients actually work?! But it did. And it does. And it’s seriously the only flour blend I need.
I use it in all of my gluten free bread recipes: from muffins to sweet breads, flat breads to pancakes and waffles, scones, sandwich bread, cookies, and more. And every single thing I make with this gluten free flour blend turns out perfectly; light, fluffy, and delicious.
Which isn’t always the case with gluten-free flours or baking.
So I reached out to Silvana to see if I could share her flour blend on the blog because of how difficult it is to find FAILSAFE options let alone GOOD ones. I am grateful that she gave me the green light since it’s seriously the best.
A note (or two) about this blend:
1: This recipe is done by weight, so you’ll need a kitchen scale (I have this one*) to measure out the flours. Make sure to get one with ounces AND grams. I linked to the one that I use. When I first got it, I didn’t think I would use it all that much. I actually got it for soap making. Turns out it’s one of the most used pieces of equipment in my kitchen.
2: I tend to buy large quantities of the different flours because I go through a batch a week. I get everything I need on Amazon because they carry larger quantities of the flours. I think it works out to about $15-16 per batch of flour (~3.3lbs), which is comparable to the store bought gluten-free blends.
Here are the flours that I use and tolerate well (these are affiliate links):
- White Rice Flour* by Earthborn Elements
- Potato Starch* from Anthonys Goods
- Tapioca Flour/Starch from Anthonys Goods or Terrasoul*
- Xanthan Gum* from Anthonys Goods or Bob’s Red Mill*
You can also find most of the ingredients in the grocery store if you don’t want to purchase them in such large quantities. My local store carries a large selection of Bob’s Red Mill products, which I used the first time I made the flour blend to see if I liked it.
