What flour is best for gluten-free baking?
As it depends on personal preference and the recipe, I like to use a blend of gluten free flour. The blend is made of rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato starch. This way, the texture is more similar to regular all-purpose flour.
Sorghum flour, almond meal or flour, and coconut flour are also common options. For convenience and great results, King Arthur gluten-free flour blend works fantastically as well.
