GF/DF Pumpkin Bread/Cake

3 cups Organic Cane Sugar

1  cup oil ( I use 1/2 cup Canola Oil-1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil)

4 Large Eggs

3 1/3 cups Auntie's GF All-purpose Flour(lightly sifted)

1 1/2 tsp Organic Ground Cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp Organic Ground Nutmeg

1/4 tsp Organic Ground Cloves

2/3 cup water

16 oz.   100% Pumpkin Puree

In medium mixing bowl add all dry ingredients set aside.

In large mix bowl beat sugar and oil together until fluffy. Add eggs beat until well blended.

Mix dry ingredients alternating with water (begin and end with drys) mix on medium speed until all dries are incorporated nicely. Do not over mix. Add pumpkin.  Blend just until combined completely.   Best if batter sits for a couple hours for spices to marry.   

Bake at 350 degrees.  Muffins/Cupcakes will take 35 minutes to bake, bread 50-55 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean and is a rich golden brown. Let cook 5 minutes remove from pan

If making a pumpkin roll bake for 25-35 minutes. You will not need this entire recipe for one pumpkin roll.  Remove from pan onto a cheese cloth dusted with powdered sugar.   Roll gently let cool.  

Batter may be made a couple weeks in advance!
