This is the most delicious gluten free bread I have ever made. No lie. It’s moist, flavorful and most importantly, not grainy like most gluten free bread.
I have something important to talk to you about today. I need help. How do you get a dog to not smell like a dog? Our new puppy Cooper is the cutest but…well…he stinks. We have given him two baths in the three weeks he’s been with us. What a show that was. My kids helped me but we had to use all our power to keep him in the tub long enough to get a quick wash.
Unfortunately, when he was dry, he still smelled like a dog. Do I have to take him to a groomer to get that yummy doggy smell? Is there no such thing as a yummy doggy smell? Did I mention I am not yet a dog person?
One good way to deal with that dog smell in the kitchen is to bake bread. This is the best gluten-free bread I have ever made. It doesn’t have that grainy rice flour texture that sometimes plagues gluten free baked goods. Your friends will never know this is gluten free, I promise.
It is full of lots of pumpkin flavor and plenty of brown sugar. I chose to use all brown sugar to give it a bit more rich molasses flavor and it works well with the pumpkin and the spices.
I prefer to use mini chocolate chips because they sink less and give each bite a bit of chocolate instead of a big clump. We love Enjoy Life chocolate chips. They cost a bit more but are the best allergy friendly chocolate chips available.
This is not a recipe that offers a lot of flexibility. I would not suggest any flour substitutions. Gluten free baking is tricky. Always make sure all your ingredients are labeled gluten-free.
