It’s been four years of this gluten free journey. FOUR. And the learning curve for this way of baking has been a great one. I’ve gone through so many different store-bought flour blends within this time and even found that creating my own gluten free flour blend works best. Just recently I really gave gluten free vegan yellow cupcakes a go and realized that my current blend just wouldn’t cut it. I needed something lighter, with the ability to create a fluffier and more tender bite. Thankfully I have learned a thing or 12 in the past 4 years and knew that it was time (FINALLY!) to make a light flour blend of my own. So without further ado, I bring to you the Fork & Beans Gluten Free Flour Blend for cakes (though this is not just for cakes, so keep reading!):
Have a cupcake, cake or muffin recipe and don’t want your gluten free flour blend to weigh it down? Give this Light Gluten Free Flour Blend a try!

This is my go-to flour blend when I want to make cakes, cupcakes, muffins, or any baked good that requires a delicate texture and lighter bite.
