Hi everyone! We’re so happy you decided to drop by for a visit. This Pumpkin Spice Cupcake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing recipe is the first one going up on our blog and we really hope you enjoy it.
October is here, which means pumpkin-spice-everything, lots of tasty treats, cocktails that will warm you up and tons of festivities to partake in. We really wanted to kick things off with some killer recipes that will be perfect for your Thanksgiving celebrations and will make your fall season even warmer (and tastier).
When it comes to fall, we think of pumpkin picking, sweater weather and comfort food; warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg just seem to go hand-in-hand with the season, and what better way to put these things together than in a cupcake? I mean, really, who doesn’t love a good cupcake? They’re always a hit with both kids and adults and they travel well for family dinners and gatherings.
We know not everyone is totally obsessed with pumpkin everything, so we made sure that these aren’t overly pumpkin-y. You still get some really nice pumpkin flavour and the spices work well together to bring this out without ever being overbearing. If you feel like adding a bit more just be sure to balance out the milk and use a bit less so as not to make these too runny. Feel free to also adjust the spice levels to add more or to soften them a bit. Either way, we know you’ll love these pumpking spice cupcakes!
These cupcakes do take on a bit of a denser feel because of the addition of the pumpkin puree and will actually work really nicely as muffins as well in the morning. Throw on the cinnamon cream cheese frosting to tie everything together and you’ll definitely have a hit on your hands.
Let us know if you try this pumpkin spice cupcake recipe and what you think! Have any adjustments that make it even better? We love hearing about them!
