The Story Behind My Award Winning* Gluten Free Flour BlendAs a scientist and mum of a child with coeliac disease, food allergies and intolerances I developed my unique whole grain gluten free flour without rice to nourish her with wholesome nutritious food.
It’s important for me to know that she is getting vital nutrients along with protein and fibre whenever she eats, and having found no suitable flour blends on the market I created my own.
Now I know that whatever I make for her, from pasta to bread, cakes and pastry she is getting some goodness with every mouthful.
On its own it can be used to make:
- Flatbreads (wraps)
- Pizza bases
- Pastry (shortcrust, rough puff, choux and Danish) and more
With the addition of baking powder (1tsp per 100g) it can be used to make:
- American pancakes
- Soda breads
- Waffles and more
One bag of flour is all you need for all your baking.

This is the best gluten free flour I have found and about the only one that works well in my breadmaker. One member of my family is seriously allergic to gluten and dairy and eggs. This flour is the perfect answer.
It is much better that competitors and I've made bread in the breadmaker with it.
I've been following Vicki for some years via her website
The flour is amazing, the best flour bar none. And I've used a few.
I've made bread, cakes, sponges and a whole lot of other stuff you'd normally think of with flour, thickening, cooking, and general baking. I don't do a huge amount as I'm single and like to watch my weight, so I resist making cakes apart from when I've got the house open to my Church and they love the cakes as I make them all GF and people never seem to realise that we're all eating the same thing, but they taste so good. Highly recommend, to quote an old advert, "Why choose cotton, when you can have silk.?"
The Free from Fairy Flour is exceptional and has transformed my gluten free baking for my daughter with coeliac disease.
Both the self raising and plain flours perform much better than others meaning that I can use them just like wheat based flours. Most importantly they are actually gluten free rather than having low levels of gluten. My daughter remained unwell for years after diagnosis and moving to a gluten free diet and only eliminating processed food and commercially produced substitutes has resulted in her being well again.
I use the flours in all my recipies - cakes, biscuits, breads, pastry, batter, sauces and gravy. My non coeliac extended family also thoroughly enjoyed their gluten free Christmas!
The best gluten-free flour I've used...
My order arrived this morning and I've just tried my first loaf with Free From Fairy flour and the recipe from her website... for the first time in years I have proper brown bread! I used aquafaba (liquid from a tin of butter beans) instead of the eggs and it worked perfectly. It looks like real bread, tastes like real bread, wonderfully crusty with soft, light inside and a good, tasty but not overpowering flavour. And easy to make. After so many attempts with various blends that never came out right, I'm absolutely delighted.
Edit: After trying a few more recipes I can confidently say this is the best gluten free flour I have used. It's easy to work with and tastes great. It makes the perfect crust for quiche with the shortcrust pastry recipe in Vicki's ebook - maybe even better than wheat! It's not just "good for gluten free", this is seriously good flour in its own right. I now look forward to making FFF flour a regular purchase.
No rice = no arsenic
I've been desperate to find a gluten free flour that doesn't use rice flour (I'm concerned about arsenic levels in rice, and the amount of rice flour used in gluten free food). I was so excited when I found this flour. I've used it so far for cakes, waffles and breads and all have been amazing. An added bonus is that it's wholegrain. I love it. I can highly recommend it.
I love your flour. I have used both self-raising and plain flour and I would continue to buy even if the price increased.
It performed just as well as others I've tried and I didn't need to use any additional raising agents
I've made sausage rolls, mince pies and banana bread with it so far.
I was looking for a wholemeal gluten free flour and this flour ticks all the boxes! It is very tasty and doesn’t give that ‘white carbs’ suger rush you get with some gluten free flours.
I’ve also used Dove’s and it performs just as well. I think things made with free-from-fairy flour have more flavour and texture.
I have tried bread, pancakes and my favourite courgette and lime cake.
Fantastic flour to work with...
Just started using your flour (plain and self raising). I'm not a confident cook but followed your Victoria sponge recipe exactly and it was fantastic.
Love it--don't use anything else now.
Other flours are mostly rice based which is bad news! I really like the honesty which Vicki shows in all her products and any communication I have with her
I've made so many things with it! Victoria Sponge, Mince pies, little marzipan cakes, and yesterday I made an amazing ginger cake from Glutenfreecuppatea :-)) If I was clever enough I would post a picture! Nothing made with wheat in our house!
Lovely Tasty Quick Bread Alternative!
This is a lovely tasty and quick bread alternative, thank you Vicki. I like to make it alongside a 'picky tea' or with soup or a stew. My only problem with the recipe is the 'leave to cool' part! 🙂 I can never resist the warm end of a fresh baked loaf!
