It’s fall, so it is Pumpkin everything!! I have a few pumpkin recipes on the blog including Pumpkin pie, Pumpkin muffins, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread and a family favourite Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. This Pumpkin Spice Cupcake recipe is a new addition to add to your fall favourites! I made the frosting a bit stiffer than my usual cream cheese frosting to help it hold better for decorating.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Cream together butter and sugar:

  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

The mix in:

  • 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil

Then add and mix in:

  • 1 and 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (equivalent to 2 eggs)

Sift together dry ingredients in a separate bowl:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice

Alternative the above dry ingredients with the milk and mix until incorporated:

  • 3/4 cup milk

Bake 350 degrees F for approximately 18-20 minutes in paper lined muffin tins. Cool and then frost. Makes around 18.

Cream cheese Frosting

  • 1/2 of a 250g pkg softened cream cheese (125g)
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 cups icing sugar

Beat the cream cheese, butter, salt and vanilla. Then add in around 3 cups icing sugar until the frosting is the consistency you want. Frost the cooled cupcakes.
