WOW!!!! Talk about an awesome flavored cupcake/frosting!! No wonder this was the #1 tweeted recipe from TOH, it is sooo good!!! I made a pan of cupcakes (12 count) and then I made a 9 X 11" pan, but now realize I should have used the 8 X 8 pan. I froze 10 of the cupcakes as well as the cake, plan to have these for Thanksgiving dessert. I plan on cutting the cake in half to make a double layered cake and then having some of the cupcakes to send home with the leftovers. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe and hopefully I will remember to get a photo of them when I pull them out for Thanksgiving! Made for PRMR Tag Game.
I made a square 12" cake, which needed to bake for approximately 30 minutes. Although the cake was moist, it was much too dense. I prefer a moist FLUFFY cake. But the frosting was nice. Walter my 9-yr-old said, "Who knew cream cheese would make such a great frosting?"
OMG Very good cupcakes. I did manage to get 27 out of these and took them to my daughters Halloween Party last week. Very well flavored, and though I only had 1, the cinnamon, and the pumpkin pie spice really stood out, and blended very well. The kids each had one during the party, and some were disappointed only because I only had enough for 1 for each kid, as they wanted a second one. Enjoyed the frosting, but The cupcake itself is a gem. Glad that the kids enjoyed these. Made for PRMR Tag
Oh My, this recipe is wonderful. I made them this afternoon for tomorrows Thanksgiving and really could not be happier with the result. They are a lovely golden orange color and not too sweet with a fine texture. Moist and delicious, this recipe will be a hit with the whole family. The cream cheese frosting is in perfect balance with the cake. I think I'll make this again but as a cake as that would suite us more than cupcakes but for tomorrows company the cupcakes will be great. Thank you Lynn for sharing :D. Update: This recipe is becoming an Oct regular at our house. Always perfectly seasonal and delicious. This is the second year for me (I only get away with it once a year as DH dislikes pumpkin) and I fully expect it to be back next year. Thanks for a true keeper Lynn.
