  • 2 cups gluten-free flour blend
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 + 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar (for topping)
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free flour blend (for coating loaf pan)
  • 1 teaspoon cooking spray or butter (for coating loaf pan)


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray or lightly butter (or with dairy-free butter) the bottom and sides of the pan. Use the teaspoon of gluten-free flour to coat the bottom and sides. Set aside. 
  • In a bowl, whisk together gluten-free flour blend, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and salt. 
  • Then add in the granulated sugar, eggs, pumpkin puree, vanilla and vegetable oil. 
  • Mix until combined. Pour into the prepared loaf pan. 
  • Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of granulated sugar over the top of the pumpkin bread batter. 
  • Bake at 350F for 45-50 minutes, until bread is fully cooked through. Check by inserting a wooden skewer into the center of the bread. If it comes out clean, the bread is ready. 
  • Allow to cool completely before slicing. 


  • Check the bread about 10 minutes before the baking time stated. If it looks like it's browning too fast, top it with aluminum oil.
  • Check the doneness of the loaf by inserting a wooden skewer or knife into the center of the bread. If it comes out clean, it's done! If not, leave it in longer. The time stated is a guideline as all ovens are slightly different.
  • Allow pumpkin bread to completely cool before slicing. In fact, I've found this pumpkin bread slices easier and tastes even better the second day.
