As with most gluten free baked goods we have found that letting the batter sit for a few minutes after mixing allows the gluten free flour to hydrate and the finished product is less "grainy".
We do not endorse any products, so you will have to locate your favorite gluten free flour. We have found most brands available at local retailers are acceptable, but you can decide which fits your individual taste.
