Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread

“And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep and Autumn was awakened.” -Raquel Franco

Slowly the humid, hot air of summer is being replaced by cool fall evenings. The sun turns in earlier each day, leaving twilight glinting off the city roofs. The season of pumpkin flavored everything is upon us. Fall is by far my favorite season. It offers a moderate temperature, drenches the city in golden light and takes our breath away with one last show. This sweet and savory pumpkin bread is a great introduction to the season. It’s perfect for those chilly mornings, sitting on a porch watching the leaves change or for taking to work during the week.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup of butter softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree (Libby’s is my preferred brand)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 and ½ teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour (Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking Flour is my preferred brand)
  • 2 tablespoons of almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla

The Creation of Gluten-Free Pumpkin Bread:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 10” loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. While the oven is heating up, combine all ingredients in a bowl or mixture. Beat the ingredients on medium speed, scraping down the sides of the bowl until all ingredients are well combined.
  3. Pour the bread mixture into the bread pan. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick insert into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  4. Serve with butter and enjoy a warm start to your fall day.
