I'm slowly but surely getting things back in order around here. Even though everything is unpacked, things are so crazy and I have yet to find much time to get in the kitchen. Hence why I am posting this so late in day!
I love anything pumpkin! One of my favorite things about fall is the plethora of pumpkin recipes floating around. I tend to go on pumpkin overload during October and November. I get excited to try new pumpkin recipes and pumpkin cupcakes seemed to be the place to start.
The flavor of the cupcake reminded me of a soft pumpkin cookie. Full of delicious pumpkin flavor and just the right amount of spice. Incredibly good! The book suggests using a cream cheese frosting to top these, but I had leftover Cinnamon-Nutella dip in the fridge and was running out of hours in the day, so that beat out making frosting. Believe it or not, I thought the cinnamon topping was fantastic.
