  • 1 15oz can pumpkin puree
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 3 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the Glaze
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
For the Bread
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 2 bread pans and set aside.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl or standing mixer (flour, sugar, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, salt).
  3. Add eggs, pumpkin puree, oil, applesauce, water, and vanilla extract.
  4. Mix until all ingredients are combined.
  5. Pour batter into bread pans evenly. Cover with tinfoil (tented so it has room to rise).
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Allow to cool and drizzle with glaze.
For the Glaze
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter.
  2. Whisk in sugar, milk, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Whisk continuously until sugar is completely melted.
  4. Drizzle over bread while glaze is still warm.
Recipe Notes

This recipe makes 2 big loaves! Make sure you tent the tinfoil, so the bread has enough room to rise. The glaze will harden as it cools. If this happens in your pot, simply heat it up again while whisking. Make the glaze after your gluten free pumpkin bread has cooled already.
