Flour Substitutions

Quite often one does not have all-purpose white flour or chooses not to want to use it. Below are some substitutions we came across that you can consider….


When a recipe calls for 1 cup of sifted all purpose flour, try one of these –

¼ cup soy flour plus ¾ cup white flour

1/3 cup wheat germ plus 2/3 cup white flour

1/3 cup whole wheat flour plus 2/3 cup white flour

¾ cup coarse corn meal

¾ cup rice flour

1 ½ cups rolled oats

1 cup of oat flour

Add 2.5 teaspoons of baking powder per cup to compensate for the all purpose flour for heavier yeast breads.
