I know that doesn’t sound very appetizing, but that might be a good thing.  I mean, if you offer someone gluten free squash bread they’re likely to turn it down resulting in more yumminess for you.  If you’re feeling generous though, you can tell people that it’s the best pumpkin bread ever.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 cups pureed squash (You can use a can of pumpkin if you’re feeling lazy, or you can bake and puree any winter squash.  I used a combination of hubbard squash and something else that might have been an acorn squash.)
  • 1 cup white rice flour
  • 1 cup sorghum flour
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • half a nutmeg, grated

Preheat oven to 350º.  Mix oil, eggs, and apple cider together.  Mix in sugar.  Add in squash puree and mix until thoroughly combined.  Sift together all dry ingredients.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.  Pour into two greased loaf pans and bake for an hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a loaf comes out clean.
