Pumpkin Spice Cupcake

Who doesn’t love pumpkin spice lattes from your favorite coffee house? Well here’s a cupcake that tastes just like that and encompasses all the favorite fall flavors.

This recipe is from one of my favorite bloggers, sallysbakingaddiction.com. Go check her out!


Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Combine 1 teaspoon of baking powder as well as one teaspoon of baking soda with 1/2 a teaspoon of salt (unless your using salted butter). Add 1 3/4 cup of ALL PURPOSE flour and 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice*.

In a separate bowl WHISK 2/3 a cup of brown sugar with two large room temperature eggs. When combined, add a cup of pumpkin puree, 1/2 a cup of vegetable oil, 1/3 a cup of milk, and a teaspoon of vanilla.

Mix the pumpkin mixture and the flour mixture but DO NOT over-mix. This will dry out the batter. Mix just until it is combined. Bake at 350 for 18 minutes. The cupcakes are so moist and the tops are a little sticky but icing always fixes that.

Top with cream cheese frosting, buttercream, or try my cinnamon browned butter buttercream that perfectly compliments this cupcake!
