Let's Go Gluten-Free: Yummy Pumpkin Bread

I dabble in all kinds of cuisines, as I'm a firm believer that variety is the spice of life. I'll try anything once. Actually, I'll try anything countless times... I'm a food lover. 

That being said, I've been experimenting with gluten-free baked goods. In a quest to go easier on my tummy, and to find new and exciting yummies, I've developed this crazy easy recipe. Anyone can do it. Whether you're a gluten-free veteran, or just giving it a try, I highly recommend this deliciousness. 

Basically, I started with a recipe for pumpkin pie, adjusted the amount of sugar and spices, then added enough GF bake mix to give it substance. Can't get easier than that!

Easiest Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread:

  • 4 cups GF bake mix (I use Wegman's GF All Purpose Flour, or Bob's Red Mill Pancake Mix. Both have excellent flavor and texture)
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
  • 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

 

Preheat oven to 350, grease two bread pans and set aside.

Whisk eggs, sugar, butter, spices, pumpkin and milk together in a large bowl. Slowly add flour and whisk until combined and smooth. Fold in pecans, leaving some to sprinkle on top. Sprinkle the top with sugar and remaining pecans. Bake 40-50 minutes, or until a knife inserted at the center comes out clean... you know the deal. I suggest you check it at the 30 minute mark, different ovens yield different results. 

As you probably noticed, the recipe makes two loaves. I made one loaf and 6 muffins. Half the recipe if you only want one, but the bread freezes beautifully. Why not make two and freeze the other to have on hand?
