Brown Rice Flour Blend

Here's the recipe for the all-purpose blend I use in the majority of the recipes in this collection.

Makes 3 cups (750 mL)

2 cups     finely ground     500 mL

     brown rice flour

2⁄3 cup     potato starch     150 mL

1⁄3 cup     tapioca starch     75 mL

1.     In a bowl, whisk together brown rice flour, potato starch and tapioca starch. Use as directed in recipes.

1.     In a large bowl, whisk together flour blend, almond flour, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum and cinnamon.

2.     In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, egg, oil and almond extract until well blended. Whisk in sour cream and milk until blended.

3.     Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until well blended. Gently fold in peaches.

4.     Divide batter equally among prepared muffin cups.

5.     Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until tops are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then transfer to the rack to cool.
