Pumpkin Cupcakes ~Soo yumm-o~

OK, I apologize in advance because you are going to LOVE these and they just might be the source of a little Fall weight gain... Even I, who isn't normally a pumpkin flavor fan just can't get enough!
I got this recipe from a good friend of mine, Lindsay. She already had half the neighborhood hooked!These cupcakes are so moist and tasty that everyone will ask for more and everyone will want the recipe! They are also super easy to make so it's a good one to get the kids involved with! I literally throw everything into 1 bowl, so clean ups a breeze too!


4 Eggs
2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Vegetable oil
2 Cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 Cups/1 large can of 100% pumpkin pure (not the pie filling)

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, and either scoop into paper lined muffin pans, OR you could also use loaf pans. (just adjust baking time to about 60 mins or until toothpick comes clean)
Bake @ 350 for about 15 mins depending on cupcake size. Cool and top with Cream Cheese frosting! Or, I've also made a cinnamon glaze when I make it in loaf pans.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
Equal parts Cream cheese and butter. I normally do 1 cup of each. blend well, add icing sugar (confectioners sugar) I don't measure the sugar, I get it to the sweetness and piping consistency that we like. Spread or pipe onto cupcakes and sprinkle with cinnamon!

These are such a great treat for the Fall/Halloween festivities that will be popping up!

Smiles & Blessings
