The easiest gluten-free Pumpkin Spice Bread
You might think that because I have a food blog, I’m good at baking.
That’s not exactly true. See, when it comes to baking, I don’t have the patience for creating complicated recipes. Nope, just hand me that barrel with those fish, and I’ll start shootin’.
I’m the master (mistress?) of the low-hanging fruit recipes. And this one does actually include a fruit: pumpkin! Obviously if you’re making Pumpkin Spice Bread, you’ve gotta have pumpkin. And I’m happy to report that this recipe has only five ingredients and can be made super-easily. It’s the perfect treat for fall–a cake-like sort of sweeter bread that’s great to whip up if you’re having guests over, having as dessert, or even having as breakfast with a mug of hot gluten-free apple cider. Read on to learn how to make it!
- 1 box Glutino gluten-free old-fashioned yellow cake mix
- 1 can of pumpkin (about 15 oz.)
- 1 can of Berry Crocker cream cheese frosting
- 1 teaspoon McCormick brand cinnamon (or more if you like things kinda spicy!)
- 1 teaspoon McCormick brand pumpkin pie spice (again, add more if you like)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix and pumpkin; mix well. Then add in your cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice; stir until thoroughly mixed.
- Grease a loaf pan (I used a stick of soy-free Earth Balance for this).
- Pour your mix into the loaf pan and smooth it over with a spoon on top (just so it looks a little neater).
- Put it in the oven and bake for 40 minutes, testing with a toothpick to make sure your bread is done.
- Bring it out and let it cool.
- Once cooled, add your frosting! Slather on as much as you like; it’s delicious. You’ll probably only use about a half to a third of the can, so put it in the fridge when you’re done and save it for another recipe! (Or dip Glutino animal crackers in it like I do–it’s like a gluten-free version of the Dunkaroos I enjoyed as a kid, and it’s super yummy!)
- Serve and enjoy, and be sure to refrigerate any leftovers (so that the frosting doesn’t get icky).
