Every year for Thanksgiving or Christmas I always decide to come back to this one recipe. Every single person that's tried it has said they didn't know it was gluten-free which makes you know it's good! It's rich, fluffy, and has an amazing texture unlike any gluten-free baked good I've had before. I decided to repost this recipe once again because I felt like it's one of the best recipes I make each year. It is by far my favorite and many people have said it's their favorite too. If I could recommend any dessert recipe to make for Thanksgiving it would definitely be this. It's easy to make and can be both gluten and dairy free! It's a perfect gluten-free dessert recipe for Thanksgiving or really any time of year and is one that I guarantee you will enjoy.
Comments about this recipe:
"These are my families favorite! They can't tell they're GF and I LOVE them!"
"I made this a few weeks ago and it only lasted three days! This is SO good!"
"By far the best gluten free dessert I've made so far! Amazing!"
"THESE ARE AMAZING! I converted the recipe so it is now gluten, egg and dairy free! But not delicious free :) replacing two eggs with 1/4 cup pumpkin puree makes them even more moist and pumpkin-y."

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Take out an ungreased 10- by 15-inch baking pan (or, for a fluffier version, a 9- by 13-inch pan) and set aside. Beat together the eggs, pumpkin, sugar and oil until well blended.
Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, the ginger / nutmeg, and chocolate chips or raisins if you desire. Mix until smooth, then spread the batter in your pan. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool.
Apply icing, enjoy!
