How to Make Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Sharing is caring!

I made pumpkin puree from our garden pumpkins to mix up a batch of these delicious pumpkin spice cupcakes.   This recipe has amazing cinnamon/sugar topping, so you don’t even have to frost them if you don’t want to! They are so easy to make (they start with a cake mix!), and are moist and fluffy!  Trust me, my friend. Your family is going to love them!  (I even have a printable recipe card for you at the end of the post!)   ‘Tis the season for cooking with your garden produce, right?

Pumpkin Spice Cupcake Ingredients

1 package yellow cake mix
1/4 c brown sugar
2 cups pureed pumpkin
1/4 c milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Also set aside for topping: a mixture of 1/2 c cinnamon and 1/2 c granulated sugar (EDIT:   I put this mixture in a sprinkling container to sprinkle it on top of the cupcakes.  I use the leftover mixture for on toast, banana bread, etc…just keep it in the spice cupboard!)

 

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Put all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Now like I said, you do not need to frost the pumpkin spice cupcakes. The cinnamon and sugar sprinkle on top make them plenty sweet. That said, if you want to frost them, I would recommend that you try my Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting recipe. It is soooo good!  And, if you want to make them a little fancy, you can always follow this link and learn how to pipe frosting on a cupcake!  Enjoy your garden cooking!  It’s the best!  Happy fall!

 

See you next time!

I am sure you didn't mean 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup cinnamon for the topping, did you?

Actually, yes. You make that mixture and then sprinkle it on top. You may not end up using it all, but I always use the leftover cinnamon/sugar mixture for on top of toast, banana bread, or whatever. I keep it in a sprinkling container, just like salt and pepper.
