I don’t think I will ever tire of using organic canned pumpkin…not after enjoying a slice of this moist gluten free pumpkin bread.
To make this gluten free dairy free pumpkin bread even more special, I added caramel chips. The sweetness of the caramel really blends together with the rich pumpkin flavors.
Baking with Pumpkin
Pumpkin is such an incredible vegetable…its sweet earthy richness was just made to go with gluten free baking. It makes cookies and cakes so moist, it is impossible to know they are gluten free.
I had a cup of pumpkin puree left over from when I made pumpkin cookies the other day and I needed to use up the canned pumpkin before it spoiled.
This gluten free pumpkin bread in the morning is one of my favorite things to enjoy, especially with a cup of coffee.
Little did I expect my kids to eat most of this moist pumpkin bread before the next morning…and I didn’t get to enjoy it for breakfast.
(*Note to self, make two loaves next time and hide one!)
This recipe won’t use the whole can so here are more gluten free recipes that use pumpkin puree:
This pumpkin loaf is full of pumpkin and walnuts…and I couldn’t resist adding those caramel bits to add a richness to this recipe. (Feel free to skip the caramel bits, this moist cake is so good, you won’t even miss them.)
Enjoy because this is perfect gluten free pumpkin recipe for those who are Celiac and wheat free!
Fun Things to Add to Your Homemade Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread:
- Nuts of any kind. My favorite nuts for pumpkin bread are walnuts and pecans. Their nuttiness works with the earthiness of the pumpkin.
- Adding chocolate chips is also a delicious addition to pumpkin bread. You can use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or even white chocolate chips in your recipe.
- Caramel chips. I may be addicted to those yummy chips!
- Mashed banana is also delicious when combined with pumpkin
What is the one cake you like to make that disappears quickly in your house?
