  • ¼ cup cultured buttermilk
  • ¼ cup gluten-free AP flour (such as Arrowhead Mills)
  • filtered water


  • Add some cultured buttermilk to a non-reactive container such as a 16 oz mason jar.
  • Add some GF all-purpose flour.
  • Mix the ingredients well.
  • Add some filtered water to create a thick pancake-batter-like consistency.
  • Loosely cover with a beeswax wrap, coffee filter, paper towel, or fabric.
  • Set in a warm spot.
  • Every day or every other day stir this mixture.
  • If brown liquid forms on top of the starter, stir well. If it is very thin, add a bit more of the GF flour and mix well.
  • When the starter has formed a lot of bubbles, has a pleasant sour smell, and pleasant, fizzy taste, it is ready for baking.
