  • Sift or whisk together:
  • 3 ½ cups gluten-free all-purpose flour King Arthur Gluten-Free Measure For Measure recommended for best results. For a regular version, just substitute with unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg *You can also substitute 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice for the cinnamon and nutmeg, but I prefer more cinnamon flavor
  • Beat together:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup grapeseed oil you can also use avocado oil or canola oil
  • 2 cups pureed pumpkin


  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients until just blended. Do not over mix.
  • Evenly divide the batter between 6 mini loaf pans and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean, or two regular loaf pans for 45 minutes, or until a cake tester or toothpick in the center comes out clean.
  • Brush the tops with melted butter, if desired, and cool completely before slicing.


  • Not all gluten-free flour blends are the same. King Arthur brand Measure for Measure gluten-free flour works perfectly for me every time as it is a smooth substitute for regular flour and also contains xanthan gum which helps create a texture that is just like regular flour. 
  • When mixing the ingredients, be sure not to overmix, this could create a texture that is too dense in the bread. 
  • Do not scoop the flour out of the bag with the measuring cup. Spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup and level it off with a knife.
  • Make sure you're using pumpkin puree -NOT pumpkin pie filling as the filling already contains spices and sugar. 
  • Make sure to follow the storage tips below for best taste and texture.
