GF PUMPKIN BREAD
Don’t miss out on a favorite fall time quick bread recipe. This GF Pumpkin Bread is so delicious and tastes as good as the regular pumpkin bread. I have been on a mission to make delicious gluten free recipes since my two youngest daughters have gone gluten free. My youngest has been officially diagnosed with Celiac disease and my other daughter who doesn’t have Celiac, feels so much better when she eats Gluten Free. With my other children grown and out of the home, we are cooking mostly gluten free now as a family.
My girls were missing some of their favorite gluten recipes and we have found a great pumpkin bread recipe to fill the void this fall.
HOW TO MAKE GLUTEN-FREE PUMPKIN BREAD – STEP BY STEP
For best results always read the full instructions before beginning.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a bread loaf pan. I like this particular bread pan so that the bread cooks more evenly without leaving the ends burnt and the middle soft; set aside pan.
- Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum, cinnamon, spices, salt, and baking soda together in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
- Beat pumpkin, eggs, and butter together in a separate bowl until creamy.
- Add the wet mixture to the flour mixture and beat until the mixture blends into a batter. Do not over-mix.
- Add in any additional ingredients like nuts or chocolate chips, etc. by folding them into the batter.
- Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan. If desired sprinkle the top with additional nuts or chocolate chips.
- Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out dry and center is set.
- Allow the bread to cool in the pan before removing to a wire rack. Slice when completely cooled.

TIPS FOR MAKING GLUTEN-FREE PUMPKIN BREAD
- It’s best to start with ingredients at room temperature, but not required.
- Use a high quality flour blend. This bread recipe works best with a quality 1-1 cup gluten free flour.
- When measuring the flour, scoop the flour from the container into your measuring cup…not the other way around. This will not compact your flour and will result in a lighter bread texture.
- Use a good quality pumpkin puree.
- Beating the eggs first before adding them to the mixture and then beating them will make the bread a little more fluffy.
