Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Cake
The Flour Farm kitchen smells like fall with the scent of baked pumpkin lingering in the air. Our newest recipe fav: gluten free Pumpkin Spice Cake. WOW – this cake tastes simply delicious. It is light and springy, yet warm and spicy. We served it for dessert at our latest dinner party, and our guests asked for second pieces, (ha!) Present pumpkin cake naked, sprinkled with powdered sugar, or go all out decadent and smother it with our tangy Cream Cheese Frosting. It’s all good!
Our gluten free Pumpkin Spice Cake is a warm, seasonal treat that is light and totally addicting. This recipe bakes up in a jelly-roll pan, so pieces are thinner than traditional cake. Blend together the dry ingredients, whisk the wet ingredients, combine, pour into a greased pan and bake for 30 minutes, (you don’t even need to break out an electric mixer!) The result: rich bars of Pumpkin Spice Cake ready to please your friends and family.
Credit must be give to the author of this recipe that I adapted to make gluten free: Sally at Sally’s Baking Addiction. We made a few minor changes to create a gum free, dairy free, gluten free Pumpkin Spice Cake. Let us know how your simply delicious recipe turned out.

Step 1: Whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Set aside.
Step 2: In a separate large bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
Step 3: Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk to combine.
Step 4: Pour the batter into the prepared pan and place in the middle of a preheated 350 F/177 C oven. Bake for about 30 minutes. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
Step 5: Remove from the oven and cool completely on a cooling rack. Frost, or top with powdered sugar when completely cool.
Store cake covered in the refrigerator for up to three days or freeze, unfrosted, for up to a month.
Homemade Pumpkin Puree: Making your own puree is so easy! Use sugar pie pumpkins for the best result. Click on the link for a tutorial by Inspired Taste. We use this method and our puree comes out perfect every time, (we do not salt our pumpkin.)
