When it’s full blown autumn all around you and there is frost in the mornings, and the air is crispy you know that it’s time for warm and cozy comfort food from AM to PM. Over the years, I’ve tried countless pumpkin recipes, from muffins to cakes and the one consistent thing that I loved about all of them was how delicious my home smelt! While some recipes were better than others; I remember that old saying “if you want something done right, you’ve got to do it yourself!”. That’s when I got into the kitchen and created this Pumpkin Bread recipe; a flawless blend of taste, texture, and nutrition that even won over my husband, a man with quite discerning tastes when it comes to baked goods.
My love for pumpkin bread took an unforgettable turn during a visit to Prince Edward County. Amongst a variety of pumpkins, the French Heirloom caught my eye. Roasting this pumpkin produced the most divine purée I’ve ever tasted. While canned pumpkin purée does the job, there’s something extraordinarily fresh and vibrant about making your own!
Caputo Gluten-Free Flour: I recently discovered Caputo gluten-free all-purpose flour, and it has significantly elevated my gluten-free baking. With an excellent blend of flours and starches, this product delivers results almost indistinguishable from recipes made with regular wheat flour.
Maple Syrup: This natural sweetener brings a gentle, earthy sweetness that pairs exceptionally well with pumpkin. Its complexity enhances the flavors without overwhelming them.
Coconut Sugar: Coconut sugar has a low glycemic index compared to regular sugar, making it a better option for those watching their sugar intake. It imparts a subtle caramel-like flavor that compliments the pumpkin.
All you have to do is replace the egg with a flax egg. To make a flax egg; combine 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed with 2.5 tablespoons of warm water, and let it gel for a few minutes before adding it to the wet ingredients.

Crafted with top-notch ingredients like Caputo flour and pure pumpkin purée, it satisfies on all fronts—taste, aroma, and nutrition.
