Allergic Solution is a food company that makes allergy free foods. I first wrote about their baking mixes here. They recently developed an all-purpose baking mix and sent me a package to bake with. (I was not compensated for this and my opinions are my own).
First some basics; this blend contains no rice, but rather sorghum, tapioca and navy bean. I have never seen a navy bean flour, so this was interesting to me. They do not include xanthan gum in their mix which I prefer. I like to add my own as I think it works better. One of the first things I did was use a spoon to put the flour into a one cup measuring cup and then leveled it off (this is how you should measure for gluten free baking). I then weighed it and it comes in at 125 g per cup. It is becoming increasingly common for gluten free bakers to go by weight, so this is important to note.
To test a new flour blend, I thought it only made sense to use trusty recipes that I already know work. So I’ve been making things already on the blog rather than creating new ones. I made these Banana Cupcakes and they turned out very well. (This is a current picture baked with this Allergic Solution Baking Mix).
I also made this Red and Blue Breakfast Cake. It turned out wonderfully. (Again, current picture with this blend).
Then I made Banana Pancakes and I think they turned out better than ever!
I also made these cookies pictured here. (This cookie also contains buckwheat, that’s why it looks “dark”).
I also used it in Mashed Potato Biscuits.
One thing I noticed is that this flour does seem to absorb liquid quite a bit. But I really did love this blend. Everything I tried it in worked well or better.
