    As is, the recipe is just good. I prefer more spice and I felt the OJ overpowered the pumpkin like it should be called Orange Pumpkin cupcakes. I don't know if this would differ with various brands of OJ (I used Simply Orange). Since I had pumpkin left over I made a second batch with all the same measurements except I used only a quarter cup OJ and 3/4 tsp of both spices and it tasted more like pumpkin cup cakes to me. The OJ gave it enough sweetness without dominating the pumpkin flavor. They even rose up better the second time for some reason. I served it with Cream Cheese Frosting #55530. The 10 minute cooking time was good for me.

    I'm anxious to make these mini pumpkin cupcakes but there is an error in the recipe. It calls for 1/4 c.(1 stick) melted butter. 1/4 c. = 1/2 stick butter,not 1 stick. Should I use 1/2 stick butter or 1 stick butter???
