Hello everyone, welcome to my latest autumnal recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Cinnamon Pumpkin Tear & Share Bread.

I find bread making a lovely relaxing thing to do when I don’t have a care in the world and all the time I need to potter around the kitchen.  So the reality of the situation is I don’t often make bread!

This recipe isn’t too bad actually and it is absolutely worth the effort.  Lovely soft pumpkin bread with cinnamon swirls.  I’ve called it a tear and share loaf as each little piece is like a mini cinnamon bun.

This tastes absolutely amazing when it is still warm from the oven with the gooey drizzle poured over.  As an added bonus it is also egg free and suitable for vegans.

For the drizzle:


  1. Heat the milk in a small pan until just before boiling, remove from the heat and set aside to cool until lukewarm.  Pour into a large bowl with the pumpkin pure, mixed spice, sugar, melted dairy free spread, salt and yeast.

  2. Mix in the flour until the dough forms a ball.  Beat with a dough hook for 5 minutes.

  3. Put the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with clingfilm.  Leave to rise in a warm place for an hour or until doubled in size.

  4. Roll out the dough into a rectangle about 1cm thick.  Brush with the melted dairy free spread and sprinkle on the brown sugar and ground cinnamon.

  5. Roll up into a log, keeping the dough fairly tight.  Place the log seam down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  With a sharp knife cut slices but only 3/4 way down.

  6. Arrange the slices so they lean to alternate sides and then squash the loaf together.  Leave to rise for an hour or place in the fridge overnight to bake in the morning.
