Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Notes, tips and variations[edit | edit source]

  • Use the above mix to replace a given quantity of wheat flour. For example:
    • for 350 grams wheat flour, "1 part" = 100 grams and "½ part" = 50 grams
    • for 7 ounces wheat flour, "1 part" = 2 ounces and "½ part" = 1 ounce
  • Add some vegetable gum (e.g. xanthan gum, guar gum) to make the flour mix stiff enough for bread dough, if you need to form it into a shape. Bette Hagman recommends the following quantities, per cup of wheat-free baking mix:
    • 1 tsp for cakes (about 0.073 parts)
    • 2 tsp for bread and pizza (about 0.146 parts)
    • 1 tsp, or none, for biscuits and cookies
