PUMPKIN SPICE CUPCAKES WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

all is here, which means time for baking! During this season, I love pumpkin, cinnamon, and spice everything. These cupcakes are ridiculously easy to make, so much so I questioned even posting it. But, I know that some of you like easy right? I enjoy baking, and cooking, but spending money on ingredients you'll only use one time, or hours on end preparing a particular recipe, isn't ideal. So I hope this simple and plain recipe idea appeals to you during this beautiful autumn season, or Halloween which is a few days away! And what's better than some mellow-cream pumpkin candies to top it off?


Cupcake Ingredients:                                                                                 

  • 1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour                                        
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder    
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 


Cream Cheese Frosting: 

4 ounces of unsalted butter, softened
4 ounces of cream cheese, softened
2 cups of powered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Baking the Cupcakes: 
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and salt.
3. In another bowl add the remaining ingredients, and whisk them together.
4. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, until well combined.
5. Place in the oven for about 16-20 minutes.

Making the Frosting:
