  1. Sift white rice flour, brown rice flour, sorghum flour, potato starch, tapioca starch, sweet rice flour, rice starch, baking powder, and vanilla powder together twice in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add superfine sugar and salt; whisk together using the whisk attachment on medium-low speed, about 2 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Add 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder for a recipe calling for a 19-ounce boxed chocolate cake. When using the cocoa, add it with the first ingredients so it will be sifted twice, together with the flours.
  • If you can't find rice starch, either replace it with arrowroot (maranta starch) or even gluten-free, unflavored rice cereal for babies.
  • To make into a cake, add 3 eggs, 1/2 cup butter or oil, 1/2 cup milk or milk substitute. Then bake at 330 degrees F (165 degrees C) for about 50 minutes. Makes one 9x13-inch cake.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
