When a recipe calls for gluten free flour – is it possible to use regular flour?
And where do you find the “gum stuff “?
Thank you.

Hi Elaine – Wheat Flour (all-purpose, bread, etc) and Gluten-Free Flour are not interchangeable. The gluten-free recipes have added ingredients to account for there not being gluten in the dough. We do have other recipes using lemons made with wheat-based flour that you may like to try:
Happy baking!
