Gluten-free Pumpkin Bread

Gluten-free Pumpkin Bread

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

This is my most favorite time of the year to bake, the weather is just starting to turn colder, leaves are changing, and the days are getting grayer. I find that I like to light some candles put on some soothing music and bake. The smell of fall is in the air and especially in my kitchen where I have been using many types of spices for my Gluten-free Pumpkin Bread. This is a true favorite in our home. Perfect for a snack, dessert, lunches, or just because you feel like it. I find nothing better than getting a sugar pumpkin at our local farmers market coming home seeding it, washing the seeds, and roasting the pumpkin for the best tasting pumpkin puree in town.

  1. Beautiful! I can almost smell it from here ...! :)

    1. Thank you so much, Jules!! The smell is absolutely delightful!!

  2. wish I could use but we have to be egg free also! :-(

    1. I'm sure you could make this egg free with an egg substitute, I would just add more applesauce with some Ener-G.

  3. Hi :) I Justa wanted to know if for the ginger part do I use a piece of it or do they sell it in powder form?? Thanks a lot!
