It’s the second day of #PumpkinWeek, and today I’m sharing a recipe for gluten free pumpkin bread! Now I’ve been living gluten free for a good six years at this point, and I feel like I’ve grown comfortable and used to living gluten free. I’ve figured out how to research restaurants and ask the right questions if I have plans to go eat somewhere, but realistically I don’t eat out often any more because I make most of my food. And for the most part, making your own gluten free food is pretty easy. Aside from breads. Oh my gosh, breads are some of the hardest things for me to create a recipe I’m really satisfied with.
Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread – Superior over other GF breads
See, most of the time if you make a gluten free variation of a classic bread recipe, the texture is normally all wrong. I haven’t figured out all the science-y parts of it yet, but I think most of it is the that you commonly lose moisture in gluten free breads if you want to obtain the traditional structure of bread. There is one class of breads that I really never have this problem with, and that’s fruit breads. Things like pumpkin bread, banana bread, apple nut bread, all are delicious to eat, and have a great texture to them. And I think part of is fruits like pumpkin add such a great volume of moisture to pumpkin bread. With this pumpkin bread recipe you’ll get a nice, soft bread that’s moist and filled with such great spices and autumn flavors.
