I had a conversation with a lady yesterday, that is still having trouble finding the right Gluten Free flours to work with. So I thought I would add some more info. about the flours I use. My favorite G F flours and the ones that react and taste more like the wheat flour that we all grew up with, are the Tom Sawyer Gluten Free Flour and Betty Crocker Rice Flour blend mixed. Below is the recipe I use to mix these 2 flours, and where to find them.
Tom Sawyer and GF Betty Crocker Flour Mix
The combination of these 2 flours is the closest I have found to the taste and texture of regular white wheat flour. And since this mixture works the best for these recipes I like to keep this mixed, it saves a lot of time.
2 – 16 oz. boxes of Betty Crocker all-purpose GF rice flour blend (each box measures out to a scant 3 Cups)
6 Cups Tom Sawyer GF Flour
In a large mixing bowl slowly pour each kind of flour in, and slowly stir with a wire whisk. ( You don’t want the flour to poof out, it is wasteful and it will throw off the measurement). Mix thoroughly, it is very important!
The reason I do this amount, is because it fills up my large Tupperware container, and this will last awhile. If you also have wheat flour in the house, PLEASE LABEL your containers!!!
NOTE: I realize some people may not be able to get the Tom Sawyer Flour, it is not available in all stores. ( We have to order this over the internet, I have provided a phone number and link below.)

You can find Betty Crocker Gluten Free Rice Flour blend at Wal-Mart, Homeland, Reesers, & other markets. Please be aware that this is not a Betty Crocker cake flour mix or Betty Crocker Bisquick, be sure and just read the boxes. Also please note, if you use the Betty Crocker rice flour alone, you must add xanthan gum to the recipe.
I hope this helps!
