These are absolutely fantastic! My whole family loved them! I did make the special pumpkin pie spice as suggested and that was fabulous, as well. The only change I made was to substitute applesauce for the oil plus one T of oil. Great recipe! I will definitely make these again!
These are wonderful. I've never had such beautiful cupcakes before I frosted them - they came out very well. The frosting is very yummy too. Cupcake and frosting are a great pair! Very moist and flavorful. I had extra batter so I made 12 mini cupcakes in addition to the 12 regular cupcakes. Mini cupcakes baked in about 9-11 minutes.
Just what I needed to use up some homemade pumpkin puree! Made about 20 mini muffins and did use the optional spice in the frosting. Made for PAC 09. Thanks for sharing!
