I've been baking with gluten free flour by Doves Farm for years but recently got accidentally introduced to baking with ground almonds as an alternative. This has been something of a revelation as the cake I can bake is just as good as baked with flour, but naturally GF.
Can anyone suggest other foodstuffs which can supplant flour as a naturally gluten free ingredient, please?
In writing this, my initial aim was to find a cheaper alternative to ground almonds, but I'm really asking about any alternative for baking cakes. Almonds provide, of course, an almond flavour - so I'm expecting that other nuts could be used the same way. Are there other foodstuffs which can replace flour in the baking process just as almonds can?
