Oh sweet pumpkin, these are amazing. They are so moist and the fluffy maple frosting with toffee bits will put you in sugar (or Shugary) heaven! Having made pumpkin scones earlier this week, I still had half the can of pumpkin leftover! I’m not done with pumpkin yet though, it’s so good, and I love the Fall feeling I get when my house smells of cinnamon and pumpkin!

You must make these. For me, I was pretty excited that it only made 12 cupcakes. I altered the recipe some, and I think you all will enjoy them. Unless you don’t like pumpkin. Then we can’t be friends. Until spring anyway.

Ingredients

For the cupcakes:

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves

For the Frosting:

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

Instructions

  1. In mixer, beat together pumpkin, sugars, applesauce and eggs. Blend in the flour, baking powder and soda, salt, and seasonings.
  2. Pour batter into cupcake tins (I used liners), dividing the batter evenly (fills 12).
  3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Cool completely before frosting.
  4. To make frosting, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in maple and powdered sugar and mix for 2-3 minutes. Spread on cupcakes and sprinkle with toffee bits. Enjoy!
