I have to eat gluten free. My husband doesn’t have to but he does. When I make the food homemade it is so much like what we have always known that it isn’t a hardship. This is a lovely, moist pumpkin raisin bread. I use Better Batter® Gluten-Free all-purpose flour. I measure by weight and that has made all the difference! I refuse to use bean flour mixes; who wants bean flavor in their sweets? Let it cool completely or it will not hold together. Once it is cooled you can slice and serve. Enjoy!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.
Beat brown sugar and butter together in a mixing bowl. Add pumpkin, eggs, buttermilk, and maple syrup; beat into the sugar mixture. Stir flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and cloves together in a separate bowl; blend into the pumpkin mixture. Fold raisins into the resulting batter; pour into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

The quality of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which not always rise as well as white bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
