Experience consistent bread baking results when you use a good quality kitchen scale to weigh your recipe ingredients instead of using measuring cups.

Use your kitchen scale to weigh the following gluten-free flours and starches:

  • 135 grams / 4.7 ounces / 1 cup white rice flour
  • 100 grams / 3.5 ounces / 1 cup tapioca starch
  • 75 grams / 2.6 ounces / 1/2 cup sweet sorghum flour OR light buckwheat flour
  • 70 grams / 2.5 ounces / 1/2 cup brown rice flour

To weigh the remaining dry ingredients, weights are as follows:

  • 25 grams cane sugar
  • 11 grams salt
  • 20 grams dry active yeast
  • 3 grams guar gum
  • 2 grams xanthan gum
  • 7 grams apple pectin fiber
  • 1.25 gram ground ginger

When all dry ingredients are weighed, thoroughly blend with a whisk and place in a large mixing bowl.

How to Measure Gluten-Free Flours and Starches - An Experiment


Every attempt to provide accurate weights and measurements of the ingredients in this recipe has been made but scales do vary as do measuring cups and the humans that use them. I used a scale that weighs in grams or ounces and have provided those weights in this recipe, with the exception of the measurement for water, which also includes a measurement in milliliters for those that have a beaker with milliliter measurements. If you prefer to measure liquids in milliliters, use one of the convenient conversion programs online to convert from grams to milliliters.
