Default Gluten free flour

Hi Does anybody know where I can buy gluten free flour for cake making,? I've tried all the big supermarkets and some health food shops and the only flour I can find is the bread mix flour.. One health food shop said they could order some in for me but when it arrived it was gluten free bread mix again. Tried Iceland , they don't sell it.. The only place I've managed to buy it is Morrisons in Gibraltar but that is over a 5 hour round trip from where I live.
Thanks in advance

This https://www.carrefour.es/supermercad.../R-787576011/p on carrefour's website seems to have a very similar ingredients list to the morrisons one.

Mercadona have this specifically meant for cake making https://www.telecompra.mercadona.es/...e.php?id=29181

I've also bought chick pea flour in even small grocery stores.

3 examples, but there will be more.

This is for one brand which gives links to online shops.

Thank you everybody, I think most of these are the ones I've already seen , they are prepared mixes that you just add eggs to , maybe better than nothing, Really wanted something like this basic free from self raising or plain flour , https://groceries.asda.com/product/flour/asda-free-from-self-raising-flour/910000399918?&cmpid=ppc-_-ghs-_--_-google-_--_-dskwid-s92700048873708434_dc&gclid=CjwKCAiA44LzBRB-EiwA-jJipOZ9e4FQIBjjzFajDjD-z0DLRCi1irkWZgVUYis4iqjS-0PBgVceOhoCQv8QAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

Hi
Is there some specific ingredient it must have or must not have (other than gluten of course)?

I ask because the ingredients of that ASDA one, and also the one Morrisons advertise, seem very similar to the Carrefour one. If you tell us specifically what you want/don't want, maybe someone will be able to help.

The Procelli flour I gave a link to says only add sugar and eggs Plus water and yeast . Recipes I have seen on line suggest adding eggs milk sugar (and more) to gluten free flour. I would suggest you perhaps try the Spanish flour using a recipe which you think sounds good.
good luck with the experimentation.

Gluten free bread is tricky. I use the indian dosa as a bread substitute. the dosa is made from fermented rice and lentils and comes out as a pancake or crepe. It is very simple to make. 1] soak the rice and lentils overnight. 2] grind them up the following day, adding water, add herbs or spices 3] leave for 24 hours in a warm place to ferment, then cook like pancakes. My favourites are Dosa a a crisp bread, Egg on dosa, cheese on dosa or a dosa wrap
