Too may pumpkin cupcake recipes result in a heavy cupcake closer in texture to a muffin;others are lighter but way too sweet.To me,this makes a nice middle of the ground cupcake:light and airy,and not very sweet-the perfect foil for rich buttercream frosting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients.
  3. Beat eggs slightly .Add pumpkin puree.Mix well.Add in melted butter and vanilla.
  4. Add in the dry ingredients,about 1/2 cup at the time,mixing well after each addition but not overbeating the batter.
  5. Line a cupcake tin with paper cupcake cups.Divide the batter evenly into the cups,about 3/4 full.I find this makes exactly 15 cupcakes in my pan.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and cool for 2 minutes.Remove to a wire rack until comletely cool.
  8. Decorate with your favorite icing.Cinnamon buttercream is amazing!
