Pumpkin Bread

Don't lick your screen
Bring something this Thanksgiving that will knock their socks off.  Gluten Free Vegan Pumpkin Bread that tastes so good, you won't mind the jokes about crazy allergy stuff.  Serve this with some vegan butter wannabe spread like Smart Balance lite and  enjoy.  This is so yummy.  I have to admit, I don't usually use this much sugar, but the kids have been sick and I usually try to comfort through food.  I know.  No lectures.  But, I needed a treat today too.  Don't kid yourself, this bread isn't super good for you.  You can cut the sugar in half and substitute applesauce for oil if you want it to be healthy. 

Gluten Free Vegan Pumpkin Bread
Serves 8
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 3/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/4 cup masa corn flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (I can never get enough)
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a bread pan.  Mix the flours and dry stuff in a medium bowl.  Put the wet ingredients, including the brown sugar in a mixing bowl and mix until blended with a standing mixer.  Add in the flour.  Mix well and pour into bread pan.  Bake for about an hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Let it cool and enjoy!
