Q&A: How to bake gluten-free cupcakes with All-purpose flour?

Question by Ricky F: How to bake gluten-free cupcakes with All-purpose flour?
I am trying to bake cupcakes for a class and I want to bake gluten-free cupcakes. I prefer not to buy a ton of gluten-free ingredients because I am not gluten-free. I already have the flour but do I have to have starch? is it necessary? I do not want to buy starch but only if it’s necessary.
oh I meant …with All-purpose gluten-free baking flour?

Best answer:

Answer by Future Chief
All-purpose flour is not gluten-free. gluten-free means no wheat, so no all purpose flour, no cake flour, and no bread flour. You would have to buy some kind of gluten-free flour like potato flour.

Gluten is the protein in wheat, rye, barley, spelt and a few other closely related grains. It’s not in corn, rice, or oats.

Gluten free flour would be flour from something or a mixture, which does not contain gluten.

Some examples: cornstarch, rice flour, potato flour, sorghum flour, soy flour, gram flour (aka garbanzo bean flour, chickpea flour or besan), coconut flour.

You can get gluten free flours in Whole Foods and Trader Joes in the US, I believe. In the UK, most bigger supermarkets will have it, most likely in the “free from” section. For this experiment, I would choose an all purpose gluten free flour mix, or you might like the results using coconut flour if you can get it.

Gluten plus flour? I’m not sure, it may be what we in the UK call bread flour, which is made from a grade of wheat that contains more gluten than normal wheat, or it might be a flour that has had extra gluten added for the same reason.

Gluten is the part of flour that makes dough stretchy, which is why you need a high level of gluten to make bread (which contains a lot of air because it rises a lot).

Question by sam: Where can I buy best gluten free flour?
Where can I buy best gluten free flour and flour mixes. I heard that gluten free recipes and products are the best solution for autism and gluten intolerance. Also I like to know about the price details of the gluten free flour of different companies. Many companies advertise themselves saying they sell good flour, but I could not find the quality in those gluten free flour. The reply is deeply appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Answer by Dani

Hodgson Mill sells lots of gluten-free flours online. You can either buy a few different flours and combine them, or buy all-purpose gluten-free flour (Arrowhead Mill sells it). With both you need to use xanthum gum, to make it rise, which you should be able to get at Bob’s Red Mill (I order online). The amount of xanthum gum you need depends on the specific recipe, but you can just google it.

Here are two combinations of flours (can be substituted cup-for-cup):

1/4 cup soy flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup brown rice flour

OR

6 cups white rice flour
2 cups potato starch
1 cup tapioca flour

I’ve used the first one more, and the all-purpose. They’re pretty good, but usually pretty dry. Using 1 packet of “flavorless” gelatin helps retain moisture.

Q&A: Gluten-free baking recipes with no flour and ingredients I am likely to have at home?

Question by Mary: Gluten-free baking recipes with no flour and ingredients I am likely to have at home?
My aunt is coming to visit and I have to bake something for her. She’s gluten-free and eats really healthy so can someone please tell me a good recipe that has no flour (we’re out of gluten-free flour), is healthy, is made from ingredients that I am likely to have at home and that tastes nice? Thanks in advance!

Answer by Kate
There are flourless chocolate tortes or salsa, which are the only things i can think of right now. BUT, you can go to allrecipes.com, click on “ingredients” under the search bar at the top and it gives you the option to exclude flour from your recipe search, or you can just search for all recipes that don’t have flour in them.
