Gluten Free and Sugar Free Pumpkin bread!

Today I made pumpkin bread that was gluten free and sugar free!  Well, not entirely sugar free, because there is natural sugar in pumpkin, and some in the baking mix.  But I was so craving pumpkin bread that I had to make it and have a slice.  The best news is that my family loved it!  It was so incredible moist.  The only weird thing is that it didn't rise, but it wasn't dense either-- just short.  I followed the recipe on the gluten free baking mix and substitued the sugar for a sugar substitute. 

Did I mention that there seems to be a statewide shortage of canned pumpkin?  I had a source though, that informed me of 3 lone cans that remained at World Market, and I snatched those up first thing this morning!  Woo Hoo!

My secret ingredients!  Pamela's GF baking mix, Xylitol sugar substitute and canned pumpkin!

The finished product.  Like I said below, it was short, but still moist and light!

Pumpkin Bread
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar (This is were I substituted)
2 large eggs
1 cup of canned pumpkin
1-1/3 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon cloves

Batter: Beat together butter, sugar, egg, and pumpkin. Add remaining bread ingredients and mix together. Pour into a greased loaf pan (8 x 4). Mix nut topping ingredients and smooth evenly over batter to the edges. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or when toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.

The pumpkin "shortage" isn't just in Nevada, love (o; My husband found the 28 ounce cans ($2.90/ea!) when he was on a business trip earlier this week. The cashier advise he snatch up what he could because the store was lucky they even had those (he got four, I think that'll get us through the fall and holidays especially if we still plan to make our own from sugar pumpkins (o; ). Plus, that bread looks really great and I know exactly where to get that pancake mix (o; Thanks for sharing!

Oops, that was a typo Davidica. I meant to say country-wide. My friend in Alabama said she can't find it either! You're lucky to have found some! I've put my whole family on a mission to check everywhere they go, including my Dad, LOL.

About Me
I'm married with 3 children. I live on 7 acres with chickens, goats, and dogs. Being a city girl and living and traveling all over the world, this lifestyle is a new adventure for me. I'm an RN and I work at the local hospital in town. I love my job, and love my community! UPDATE: We have just recently relocated to the south! My husband was relocated to Marietta, GA. We are now in the suburbs, and I am embracing our new lifestyle with open arms!
My favorite things to cook
I recently had to go Gluten Free and low sugar. This is actually a good thing for my cooking progression! I no longer buy any processed or packaged products. I make just about everything from scratch! I love soups and international foods! I absolutely love experimenting with spices and fresh herbs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy cooking with family and friends. I always give my kids jobs in the kitchen, it helps me and also helps them learn how to chop, dice, zest, puree, braise, etc... And nothing is more fun than having a friend visit, and cooking a meal together while we drink wine, and catch up on lost time!
My cooking triumphs
Creating my own recipes! I recently started doing this. I will research a food, look at several other recipes, and combine and moderate to my own taste. Check out my recipe box to see some!
My cooking tragedies
There have been so many. The family joke is my burnt bread. I burn the rolls/bread for every Christmas and Thanksgiving!!! My friend and I made our first T-giving turkey and left the plastic bag-o-guts in the turkey! And of course, there's the time that I mistakently added 1 cup of salt instead of sugar in a cookie recipe!
