Pantry Flour (A Brown Rice Flour Mix)


     So, sometimes, with gluten-free cooking there is times, at least with myself, that I miscalculate the flour I have left.  So, I’m in the midst of cooking only to discover that I ran out of flour.  This may have happened recently to myself, while I had multiple things going on in the kitchen – something in the oven, a couple of things on the stove, even the microwave was working.  It was busy.  I thought I planned it all out, but then, the dreaded realization of not having, enough, flour.

    To me, this is a big problem, since it is not exactly as easy as running to the closest store to get a bag of flour.  Due to my allergies, I’ve yet to discover a commercial flour that I can just purchase.  I have to do homemade mixes.  So, to run out in the midst of cooking, is quite a dread! Do I have all the different flours in the pantry? Do I have enough of each in the cupboards? What do I have?  Will the store have them in stock or out – again??

    As it was, it was just myself at the home and there was no way I could leave, or put pause, to the other recipes that were already underway.  So, I just had to hope and pray I had what I needed in the pantry.   I did not.  Panicking a bit, looking over the scraps of what was in the cupboard,  I whisked together what I had.  I applied my very basic knowledge of cooking with my allergies and hoped that it would work – and did it ever!

    Thus – the Pantry Flour was born! It is a very simple mix that I use, when in a pinch.  I  So far, the results with the mix has been superb!   The photos of muffins below are made with the mix – they are light, fluffy, and taste delicious! The recipes for them will be for another week.
