Absolutely AMAZING! I bought a can of pumpkin when it finally came in stock, and have been waiting for a worthy recipe to use it on. I opted to make pumpkin muffins, so I didn't use the frosting; otherwise, I followed the recipe to the tee. These guys are so moist! I was able to make 12 muffins and 3 mini muffins. I added toasted walnuts to some of the batch, which was a great idea. I plan on making these again this week with the walnuts. Also, I watched mine and ceased baking at 15 minutes, so be sure to keep an eye on yours!
I needed to use up some pumpkin puree that I had prepared and froze last fall. Also needed to use up some buttermilk. Didn't have any pumpkin pie spice, but found a substitute recipe on line. I froze them and have been enjoying them in the morning for breakfast. I didn't frost them, so they are really just like muffins.
DELICIOUS! I made this in a bundt pan and cooked it for about 45 mins. and it came out WONDERFULLY. Also added a little bit of Nutella for a little something extra in the frosting and it was beautiful. Thanks for a great recipe!
These were excellent. They had the delicate soft crumb of a cupcake, but with the less sweet and easy to get out of the pan part of a muffin. I followed other reviewers and added 2 teaspoons of the pumpkin pie spice. It was mild, but just right for me. We thought these were definitely better without the icing, it overpowered it. I got 13 very well risen muffins out of this recipe.
As previous reviewer stated...this is more like a muffin than a cupcake. The sweetness is primarily the icing. The texture, firmness... not much sweetness...more like a muffin. I gave it 3 stars as a "muffin" but would give even less as a cupcake.
We really liked the cupcake didn't like the icing too much. We made half with buttercream frosting and loved it!
My son wanted to make pumpkin muffins yesterday, and this was the lucky recipe we chose. These are fantastic. Easy to make, light and moist. I did follow other comments and upped the pumpkin pie spice to 2 tsp. I also frosted them with Coooked Chocolate Fudge Icing #122759, instead of cream cheese icing, which is very decadent and over the top good. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
Unbelievable! So smooth and soft and light! I agree about the spice... should increase it to 2 tsp, but it's still nice. I used soy milk (instead of buttermilk) because I didn't have any "real" milk... it didn't do anything weird to the cupcakes. They are amazing!
These are really moist and surprisingly fluffy IF you sift the flour and don't over-stir. I used the white chocolate cream cheese icing White Chocolate and Cream Cheese Icing and then drizzled them with some caramel syrup - DIVINE! And they looked great too, like something from a fancy bakery!
These cupcakes turned out great!!!
