Picture of pumpkin cupcakes
These pumpkin cupcakes were something I made on a whim today and they are SO GOOD. I've had this can of pumpkin sitting in my cabinets for the longest time. I didn't want to do another pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread, but I definitely needed sweets. 

Pumpkin cupcakes to the rescue! This recipe will make 20-24 cupcakes so you'll make lots of new friends perhaps.

Step 1: Ingredients:

Picture of ingredients:
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar (I added in 1/4 cup brown sugar)
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 15 oz can pumpkin puree
I altered a recipe I found on Chow slightly - a little less sugar, oil and cloves. The original 1 cup of oil was waaaaaay too much once I cut back on the sugar a little.

You'll also want some cupcake liners to make it easy.

Preheat your oven to 350 F before you get started - the batter comes together quick!
