Sharing My Favorite Pumpkin Bread Recipe!

Recommended Posts

To be gluten-free!!! It came out awesome!! So moist and the exact same texture as I remember!!!

Thought I would share a wonderful fall recipe with you all.

Pumpkin Bread

2/3 cup shortening (I used coconut oil, which is solid at room temp.)

2 2/3 cup sugar

4 eggs

1 can (1 pound) pumpkin

2/3 cup water

3 1/3 cup flour (I used Bette Hagman’s Featherlight Mix)

3 1/3 tsp. Xanthan Gum

2 tsp. Baking soda

1 ½ tsp salt

½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cloves


2/3 coarsely chopped nuts

2/3 cup raisins (I use Dole…moist & plump

Heat oven to 350. Grease 2 9x5x3 inch loaf pans or 3 8.5x4.5x2.5 inch loaf pans. In large bowl, cream shortening & sugar until fluffy. Stir in eggs, pumpkin & water. Blend in flour, xanthan gum, soda, baking powder, cinnamon & cloves. Stir in nuts & raisins.

Pour into pans. Bake around 70 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. ******I only baked 60 minutes when I baked with gluten-free flours. Could be my oven, could be the difference in flours. Just keep a close eye on it. ******

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)

The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
