You know you’re craving anything and everything Pumpkin Spice! It’s that time of the year! They weather may not have even cooled down yet, but the flavor is synonymous with the time of year. Before you know it we will be playing Ghosted with friends and neighbors and getting anxious over our Halloween costumes.
We made these Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes together – my near 10 year old and I. The smell that surrounded our home as she baked was incredible. There is something about all the spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice – mixed together that is a bit intoxicating.
Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes
We began this adventure to bring the flavor of the fall into our home on a Sunday afternoon. We pulled the ingredients out and even ran to Publix to pick up a few more we were missing.
The recipe is rather simple. You combine the dry ingredients (minus the sugar) in one bowl.
Then you use a KitchenAid mixer to mix the oil with the sugar. Followed by adding the eggs, slowly, to the batter that is forming.
You carefully add the flour to the electronic mixer. We used a 1/4 cup measuring cup to add the flour. I got a bit nervous with the flour getting everywhere when she added it. Thankfully not too much of a mess was made.
We used a 12-cup muffin tin with paper inserts AND 12 standalone foil muffin cups that happened to have in my cupboard. Each muffin cup was filled about 2/3 of the way. We tried our best not to spill the batter everywhere.
The Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes baked in my house for nearly 25 minutes. The smell was incredible.
After they cooled on the cooling rack, we piped using a gallon sized plastic bag the homemade pumpkin spice cream cheese frosting. Alternately, you can use store bought cream cheese frosting.
I did everything in my might not to have a bite. My daughter was making these for her class.
The Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes recipe yields 24 traditional cupcakes. You could alternatively make mini-muffins/cakes to more than double the servings.
It was a cooking with kids recipe, as my near 10 year old did much of it – I was her sous chef!
