Gf Starter for Sourdough

Home | Recipes | G
Bread Sourdough


  • Pinch sugar
  • 1 c Lukewarm water
  • 1 tb Yeast granules
  • 1 1/2 c White rice flour


This recipe is intended for people who are allergic to gluten and cannot make starter with wheat flour.
In a quart glass container or crock, add the sugar to the warm water. Dissolve the yeast in the mixture. Add the flour, stirring well. Let sit in a warm place until fermented and bubbly, 2 to 3 hours. When bubbly and risen a little, cover and refrigerate. Starter is ready to be used.
At each using, the cookbook author finds it works best if taken from the fridge and allowed to warm about 1 hour before putting into the dough mixture.
After each use, replenish the started by mixing in 1/2 cup lukewarm water and 3/4 cup rice flour. Adapted from More from the Gluten-Free Gourmet by Bette Hagman 1993 ISBN 0-8050-2324-0 Shared but not tested by Elizabeth Rodier Feb 94
