Nothing reminds more of Fall and the coming of the holiday season quite like pumpkin bread. This gluten-free pumpkin loaf is moist, dense, full of pumpkin flavor, is perfectly spiced and won’t crumble.
- 1 cup canned pumpkin , not pumpkin pie filling
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum , leave out if your flour already has it in it
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with gluten-free cooking spray.
- In a large bowl add pumpkin, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix to combine.
- Add in the sugar, brown sugar, pure vanilla extract and mix until fully combined and smooth.
- Add the eggs and the vegetable oil to the batter and mix until smooth.
- Add in the gluten-free flour, xanthan gum (leave out if your flour already has it), pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon and mix until fully combined and smooth. The batter will be thick.
- Spoon the batter into the greased loaf pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing. I like to remove the loaf from the pan after 2 minutes and cool on a cooling rack or cutting board. Enjoy!
Store leftovers in an airtight container. The pumpkin bread can be frozen once completely cooled. Wrap the loaf with foil or plastic wrap and then place in a freezer bag. The loaf can be frozen up to 3 months.
