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!
