Pumpkin Cupcake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting


***I found this Post in my drafts but guess I never posted it!!  This was from last Friday when I was sitting at the airport!!  LOL!  ***


Hello Everyone!!

Wow!  It's been quite an afternoon/evening.  I have been sitting at the airport for 4 hours now.  My original flight to Utah was at 2:40.  We all got on the plane, took off, and then about 20-30 minutes into the flight there is an announcement from the captain that they need to turn back around and land back in Oklahoma where we just left.  There was some problems with the pressure in the plane.  We arrived safely, got off the plane while they looked at it, and then waited 2 hours why they were deciding if we would get back on or not.  They then announced that they could not fix it and the flight was completely cancelled.  YIKES!  My niece is getting married in the morning and I really wanted to be there to represent my family.  I then found out that ALL flights going to Utah tonight were completely BOOKED!  Double YIKES!  After waiting another hour and a half I decided to go to the front desk and see if I could get something for tomorrow.  The AWESOME front desk person was able to get me a ticket on the flight later tonight!  Someone had just cancelled their flight and he slipped me right in!  Soooo awesome!!  So, here I sit on my computer waiting to board my plane........ again!  I'm just so happy that we were all safe.  




I really wanted to share this super easy Pumpkin Cupcake recipe that I actually made up all by myself.  Yaaayyy meeee!!  LOL!!  These actually did turn out!  Are you surprised?  I was!!




Pumpkin Cupcake  (This is a double batch.  Cut in half for regular batch.)
2 sticks of butter (softened)
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cans pumpkin (the regular sized can)

4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3-4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg
1 to 1 1/2 cups milk 

Cream butter in a mixer.  Add sugar one cup at a time.  Add eggs cream together.  Add Vanilla & Pumpkin.  Blend well.  Add all flour, soda, powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg.  Mix but do not over mix.  Add 1 to 1 1/2 cups of milk.  You do not want it to be too thin or too thick.  Spoon into cupcake wrappers (I use a ice cream scooper).  Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 21-22 minutes.  

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting (You will need to double if you are planning on making the double batch above.)
1 block cream cheese
6-7 cups powdered sugar
1/4-1/2 cup milk
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

Cream the cream cheese in the mixer.  Add powdered sugar one cup at a time blending each one well.  Add mild a little at a time to the right consistency that you are looking for.  Add cinnamon and nutmeg, mix well.  

VIOLA!!!!

  6. Oh Robyn I have been in your shoes before with the whole business at the airport. I used to live in Dallas and Colorado... for some reason weather loves to pester the weary travelers there! :-)
    As for the cupcake recipe! LOVE IT! You speak my language for the love of Fall I have. I can't wait to make these! BTW: I used your cream cheese frosting recipe that you posted a few months back and it was perfect and quick! Thank you!

  9. This recipe looks fantastic! I love making pumpkin goodies because while my friends and family love pumpkin things, I'm not a huge fan. Thus, tasty pumpkin recipes that I make bring me lots of love, but hardly any calories. Glad your flight worked out. Thanks for the inspiration.

  25. These cupcakes sound so yummy but I'm confused by "regular" size can of pumpkin. Do you mean a 15 oz (like a can of vegetables) or the bigger can? My hours at school were cut so now I have ALOT of time to fill and I would love to try your recipes.

  52. Hi Robyn! I was making a cupcake pop up card when I saw your pumpkin cupcakes, so I decided to model my pop up cupcake card after your real cupcakes. I'm a much better paper crafter than a cook! Take a look and let me know what you think!
