Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

These Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes are the perfect fall treat.  They're moist, fluffy, and full of pumpkin flavor.  The frosting is made with cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar for a sweet taste that's not too overwhelming.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes are perfect for any occasion - they're decadent enough for a party but also festive enough for holiday dinners.

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes




30 minutes

24 cupcakes



– Sugar – Applesauce – Eggs – Pumpkin puree – All-purpose flour – Baking soda – Ground cinnamon – Ginger – Nutmeg – Baking powder – Salt

Preheat the oven to 350°. Fill a muffin tin with fall or Halloween-themed cupcake papers. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, applesauce, eggs, and pumpkin puree. Mix until combined.

In a smaller bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spice. Slowly add the flour mixture to the pumpkin/ applesauce mixture. Mix thoroughly.

Pour about 1/3 cup of batter into each cupcake paper. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes.

Place on a cooling rack and let cool completely before frosting. I really like cream cheese frosting with this recipe, but buttercream works as well. Decorate with your choice of holiday-themed sprinkles! I love this decorating mix by Wilton.
