Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cake Recipe - Bundt

Here is another gluten-free recipe I promised a while back. I just recently uploaded the GlutenFree Pumpkin Bundt Cake Recipe to our free recipes library for anyone that is looking for a holiday pumpkin treat that is a bit different than a traditional pumpkin pie.

This recipe is easy to make, and has much of that pumpkin-pie type flavor but in the form of a cake. All sorts of flavor comes together in here: clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger - and even a bit of cocoa. This recipe is also dairy-free, in our push to accommodate those of you who can not tolerate milk products very well.

We made this recipe for Thanksgiving dinner, but it should be equally welcome around the Christmas holiday table - whether for dinner or at a party. We have tried it both with and without added Xanthan gums, and it works fine either way (the Xanthan gum does give it a bit better bounce, and makes it less likely to crumble), so take your pick whether to include that in your gluten free recipe or not.

Now, if I can only remain this productive in my blog postings for the rest of the week! I am finally catching up on a few of those outstanding recipes. Some of the others outstanding include a new type of GF and dairy-free/casein-free muffin my wife came up with; there is also a chocolate angel-food cake to post; some cranberry pumpkin muffins; pumpernickel bread, and a few others. I have quite a few other things I want to still get done this week though, so time will tell whether they are posted sooner rather than later on this gluten free blog. :)

Thanks Lynn. Always so predictably kind. I guess if you are going to have predictable traits, kindness is a good one to have!

This looks gorgeous Mike! I'm sure I'd love it! I'm the original English girl that loves pumpkin pie, so this is bound to be a winner. Although I've never actually cooked a pumpkin pie to date

Dianne, if you love the flavor of pumpkin pie, you'll probably like this cake. I love pumpkin. I use it in cookies, muffins, pancakes, cakes, and pie (of course). It's a very versatile ingredient, and full of Vitamin-A and Potassium, which everyone knows offsets the caloric down-side of desserts. :)
