This is a go-to treat when I want something sweet. I eat small amounts and heat it up with some earth balance. It is good with tea at night or just when you are craving something sweet. You can swap out the eggs with applesauce and add in nuts. This is also something great to make around the holidays as well.
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- 1½ cups gluten-free flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon each of ground nutmeg, all spice, pumpkin pie spice
Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9 x 5 loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugars and vanilla extract Add in the pumpkin puree and oil and beat until combined.
Add the dry ingredients and stir until combined, you could also use your mixer to combine.
Spoon batter into the lined loaf pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven, allow to cool for at least 10 minutes, then serve warm or allow to cool completely, then slice and serve and enjoy.
