Samhain Pumpkin Bread

Updated: Feb 23

After coming across Le Lady Moon's Samhain Pumpkin Bread recipe, I wanted to make a gluten free version with a few slight changes! Thank you, Le Lady Moon for sharing this splendid recipe!

First off, you might be wondering, what is Samhain? Pronounced saah-win, Samhain is a Celtic holiday that honors our dead ancestors, renewal, & as in all Pagan holiday's, appreciation for nature. We should take note! Samhain also happens to be the Witches New Year, a time to go inward & take care of ourselves, prepping for the seasons. We just celebrated with the Full Blue Moon on Halloween! Continue the celebrations with this Gluten Free Samhain Pumpkin Bread!

Gluten Free Samhain Pumpkin bread


  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • 1 cup white powdered sugar

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar

  • 3/4 tsp salt

  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice

  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

  • 1/2 tsp ground clove

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/3 cup water

  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts or hazelnuts

  • 1 cup gluten free all-purpose flour - I use Pamela's

  • 3/4 cup gluten free tapioca flour - I use Bob's Red Mill

The Process

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • whisk together dry ingredients: flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, clove, baking soda

  • in a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients: butter, water, eggs, vanilla, pumpkin

  • once both are smooth mixtures, toss in a bowl & blend together

  • mix in walnuts or hazelnuts

  • grease your pan - I did not have 2 loaf pans (Le Lady Moon's recommends), so I used a 10x10 ceramic pan

  • Le Lady Moon recommends baking 50-60 minutes - right on point as it took me about 55 minutes!

Le Lady Moon's recipe calls for vegetable oil instead of butter, but I knew my ancestors would not be having that (they love their butter), so I decided to switch it up! Check out her Samhain post for the original recipe!
