LIKE: Better Batter and King Arthur Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour. HINT: If using King Arthur Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour or a custom blend, you will need to add Xanthan Gum. Cookies/Bar Cookies, Breads, and Pizza use 1 teaspoon of Xanthan Gum for every 1 Cup GF Flour. If using Better Batter, you will need increase the liquid in the recipe by 50%.
