Pumpkin Cupcake Recipe

I love making anything pumpkin during the Fall months. Fall is my favorite time of the year. I am sure you will love this delicious pumpkin cupcake recipe!

Pumpkin Cupcake Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin puree

1 cup mini chocolate chips
chocolate syrup

**Recommended Frosting: Marshmallow Buttercream

Pumpkin Cupcake Recipe Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla. If you’re using mini chocolate chips, add them now.
  • Alternately add the flour mixture and pumpkin puree, until all well combined.
  • Fill the muffin cups, and bake for about 18 minutes or a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the cupcakes comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

Because I was making these a “lighter” version than I normally would, I did not use the chocolate chips and I used whipped cream for frosting. Marshmallow Buttercream is a delicious frosting choice, though. The link is under the ingredients list. 🙂

Thanks for the recipe Joy of Baking.
