Instructions

Pumpkin Cupcakes

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Line muffin pans with muffin papers, you’ll end up with about 18 cupcakes.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a large bowl beat together the oil, sugars, eggs & vanilla extract until no lumps remain (about 1-2 minutes).
  4. Mix in the pumpkin.
  5. With the mixer on low speed mix in the flour mixture about ½ at a time alternating with ½ of the milk.
  6. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling each about ⅔ full.
  7. Bake in the center rack of your oven for 16-19 minutes, or until the tops feel slightly firm to the touch and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. In a large bowl beat the butter until fluffy – about 2 minutes. Then beat in the cream cheese.
  2. Add in the cinnamon & vanilla extract.
  3. Beat in the powdered sugar about 1 cup at a time, starting with the mixer on low speed. If the frosting seems too thick, beat in the whipping cream 1 tablespoon at a time.
  4. Frost the cooled cupcakes using a flat knife or piping bag.

***Store cupcakes in an airtight container at room temperature for 2 days, or in the fridge for up to 3 days.
