Today, we’re going to be taking a look at King Arthur gluten free flour ingredients, and seeing what recipes you can make with this versatile flour. Gluten-free flour is a staple food in any gluten-free household. However, it can be hard to know which flour to replace with wheat flour, and how much to use, in every recipe. But the Kings Arthur gluten-free flour is incredibly versatile and can be used as a replacement in pretty much any recipe like to like. But what is it made from? What can you make with it? Let’s take a look.
What Is Gluten Free Flour?
Nowadays, gluten-free flour is relatively easy to find. Gluten-free flour is a name that’s given to all flour that does not contain any gluten. Whether it be rice flour, buckwheat flour, or almond flour – they’re usually all given the generic name of gluten-free flour. Usually, you can not simply replace one flour with another in a recipe, but that’s what all-purpose flours are used for, and why they’re so popular.
What Is King Arthur?
If you’re from the US, you’ll likely already be familiar with King Arthur Baking. They’ve specialized in baking since 1790 (isn’t that incredible?!) and they supply a range of baking products from flours, to cake mixes, to baking tools. They also have a specially designed gluten-free range, which is 100% gluten-free and offers products such as bread mixes, doughnut mixes, cake mixes, flour and so much more.

Gluten Free Pasta Recipe
Once you have this staple in your pantry, you can make a huge selection of foods. One of the tastiest foods to enjoy fresh is gluten-free pasta. And it’s easier to make than you may think – and doesn’t need many ingredients at all! This recipe is inspired by one from King Arthur Baking.
The ingredients you’ll need for this recipe are:
- 1 1/4 cups of King Arthur gluten-free flour
- 4 large egg yolks
- 1 large egg
- 2-4 tbsp. of water
Now all you need to do is:
Step 1: Make the Dough
Grab a bowl and add the gluten-free flour. Now add the egg yolks and the large egg. Mix with your hands and then knead as it starts to take shape. At this point, start adding water – do this gradually. You only need enough water so that your dough becomes smooth and pliable. Now mold the dough into a rectangle (around 1″), wrap, and leave for around 30 minutes.
Step 2: Shape the Dough
Once it’s been 30 minutes, grab some flour and lightly flour on both sides of the dough, and your rolling pin. Now roll the dough into the thickness you like (it can be whichever size you’d like). You’ll likely need to add more flour as you go. Now cut into shapes of your choice, and cover with flour once more.
Step 3: Cook the Pasta
Boil a pan with water and one tablespoon of salt over high heat. Once boiling, reduce to medium heat and add the pasta. Cook for around 2-4 minutes (the time will all depend on the size, shape, and thickness of your pasta). Once cooked, drain and add oil. Enjoy!
