pumpkin pie cupcakes

Tis the season for everything pumpkin! I made these cupcakes for the first time a couple years ago, and they got eaten so quickly that my friend and I had to make another batch almost immediately! They are just so good. And so easy to devour in a few bites. Plus, quick to mix up and bake. So all around, the perfect recipe!

Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes with Whipped Cream
-2/3 cup all purpose flour
-1/4 tsp baking powder
-1/4 tsp baking soda
-1/4 tsp salt
-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
-1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-2 large eggs
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-3/4 cup half and half

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and half and half until well combined. Add in dry ingredients and whisk until no streaks of flour remain and batter is smooth.
  4. Fill each liner with about 1/3 cup batter.
  5. Bake for 20-30 min (depending on your oven), and then cool the cupcakes in the pan.
  6. Chill cupcakes before serving and top with whipped cream.
Whipped Cream

  2. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and whisk until stiff peaks form.
  3. Add to the cupcakes once cooled.
Happy baking!
