happy halloween, guys & ghouls!
welcome to another edition of
a spook-tacular food blog the wonderful
lisa from shine your light
& i co-host each week.
this week i'm sharing:
pumpkin cupcakes with maple frosting
1 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground allspice
pinch of nutmeg
1 C pumpkin puree
1 C sugar
1/2 C vegetable oil
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1. preheat oven to 350 f. line or grease a standard 12-cup muffin pan.
2. in a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, allspice & nutmeg. in another bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, sugar, oil & eggs. add the flour mixture & whisk to combine completely.
3. divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 22-24 minutes. let the cupcakes cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. transfer the cupcakes to the wire rack & let cool completely, about 1 hour, before frosting.
1/2 C butter
1/4 C maple syrup
2 C powdered sugar
1. in a large bowl, beat syrup & butter until combined. add the sugar, a bit at a time, & whip until combined.
these cupcakes pretty much sum up fall to me.
