Author's Note: This flour blend can be substituted for wheat flour on a 1-to-1 ratio. In other words, if your recipe calls for 1 cup of flour, use 1 cup of my flour blend AND be sure to do the following:
1. Double the amount of leavening agent called for in your recipe.

2. For any type of batter, beat at a brisk speed for at least 3 minutes AFTER last ingredient is added. This incorporates air into the batter.

3. When pouring batter into pan, be very gentle, and whatever you do, DO NOT TAP PAN TO RELEASE AIR BUBBLES. You want that air in the dough. 

4. Allow batter to "rest" in pan for 15 minutes BEFORE placing in the preheated oven. This gives the leavening agent a head start on rising.

5. When using baking powder, I use only Rumford. I have found this brand to be far superior in its ability to get gluten free flour to rise correctly.
