Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Loaves Recipe

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Loaves

I’d apologize for posting yet another baking recipe this month, but sorry, not sorry – it’s baking season, after all! In addition to baking season, it’s PUMPKIN season. I don’t know about you, but canned pumpkin was unavailable in my area when I tried to Instacart it recently. Luckily, I managed to swipe a few cans after a couple failed attempts, so without further ado, here are some delicious Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Loaves that are sure to get you Halloween ready!

For this recipe, I used some kitchen staples like eggs, sugar (I used Wholesome Organic Sugar), vegetable oil, GF flour, baking powder, butter, vanilla, and salt. Many of you probably have a lot of these on hand, so you’ll likely just need to pick up a few extras like pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, raisins, walnuts, and powdered sugar. For you die-hard bakers out there, you may very well have ALL of these ingredients already.

And just a heads up, if you don’t already have a mini loaf pan, here’s a link* to the pan I used. This pan is inexpensive, and it makes the most adorable presentation for baked goods! (If you prefer to make these in muffin pans, just check the doneness 5 minutes earlier than the recipe states.)

    The flavor is great but there’s too much moisture in the recipe, and I think the time is underestimated. I had to bake for an additional 20 mins just to get a clean pull, and even then I didn’t get a nice fluffy texture. It’s too dense, a little too moist. I didn’t bother with the icing after that. I recommend letting it toast quite a bit on top to get the sweet crunch.

      These are supposed to be more dense and moist compared to a traditional fluffy bread with a crisp crust. Sort of like a banana bread.

    WOW. These are wonderful. I made them as muffins since I didn’t have the little loaf pans. I just tried one without the glaze and I can only say they are so good! It was like a party for my taste buds!! Thank You for sharing the recipe. I love your blog. You have the greatest recipes.

        These are delicious! I
        I don’t use refined sugar so I substituted palm sugar. I’m also highly egg sensitive, so I used flax eggs.
        Texture was perfect and taste still delicious!

    Is there any dairy free option that would work for the cream cheese?

      You can try a dairy-free cream cheese substitute, like So Delicious or Daiya brand. I haven’t tried it myself with a DF option, but I think it should work.

    No xantham gum required?

      My flour blend contains xanthan gum but I did not add any extra and I don’t think you’ll need to use a flour blend with xanthan gum if you don’t want to, because this recipe contains eggs and the eggs help with structure and binding.

    What could I use instead of cream cheese? I am lactose intolerant. Gut ache.

        I made these into muffins. I had to cook them a lot longer and still very dense and moist more like a pie versus a muffin/loaf. I let them sit overnight on a plate and this morning there was liquid on plate from muffins and they were very wet. I’ve popped them back into the oven for a bit to see if dries out. Not impressed. I checked the recipe again and I used everything recommended so I don’t know what went wrong.
