Easy gluten free pumpkin bread

I’m posting this as part of my experiment with video/pictures in conjunction with making recipes and teaching techniques.

I find myself on the brink whether to continue making YouTube videos.  I really want to share my expertise when it comes to gluten-free cooking and baking.  Not knowing how to convert a recipe or how to make a really good gravy could be the difference between having a great gluten free life or throwing your hands up in exasperation and going back to eating gluten, to the detriment of your health and well-being.

Making videos requires quite the learning curve, not to mention the patience of a saint when trying to get “the angle” with a tabletop tripod.  Although I am getting better at shooting and faster at editing without tearing my hair out.

In the interest of covering all of my bases, I am including both pictures and video in this post for making gluten free pumpkin bread.   On with the recipe!
