1st Day of Christmas Treats: Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

Sorry neighbors, this bread was so moist and delicious that I nibbled away the whole loaf and left none for you.  Next time I might cut the sugar to 3/4 cup, as it was a bit on the sweet side.  I'll be making this one again for sure!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup water
1/3 cup oil
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 3/4 cup gluten free flour mix
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon xanthum gum
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Combine sugar, eggs, water, oil and pumpkin in a mixing bowl and blend well.  Sift remaining ingredients into the mixing bowl and stir until well blended.  Do not over beat.  Pour batter into a 4 x 8 inch loaf pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake for 50 - 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Cool 10 minutes before removing from the pan.  It's best if you can wait until the next day to eat it so the flavors have time to mingle.  Yum!
