Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting #SundaySupper


Hello, all! I'm back for another round of the Sunday Supper Movement. Today's theme is Fall Flavors and, of course, I couldn't think of anything more fitting than these little cupcakes that I had made last year for my birthday. But somehow I still hadn't posted on the blog. Gotta love when it's been more than a year since you've made a recipe before it goes up on the blog. Whoopsies.

Every year for my birthday, I sit down and scour my cake/dessert Pinterest boards for the recipe I most want to try for my birthday cake. I know some people find it weird, but I love making my own. I don't really have enough excuses to make cake, so I am definitely using my own birthday as a time to make cake! Each year I go in thinking I'll make a cheesecake, but ultimately end up with something else. Part of why I love September so much is because pumpkin everything is out. And when pumpkin everything starts coming out, I go CRAZY. I buy all the pumpkin everythings. This year I have purchased at least one new pumpkin product each time I've gone to the grocery store. So I think it was no surprise to anyone when I chose to make pumpkin cupcakes for my birthday.

These little cuties are very moist and delectable. Buttercream is one of my favorites and honestly, this buttercream takes the cake. Hardy har har. But really it does. It's so delicious and I could see it going with so many other flavors, too. But it definitely complimented the pumpkin so very well. I chose to make them look super fancy with some gold sanding sugar and edible pearls. I just adore how they turned out and almost hated to eat them! All in all, they were perfect for my birthday and I definitely need to make them again this fall!

What you need:
For the Pumpkin Cupcakes:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can (15 oz.) pureed pumpkin
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 cup milk [I used whole]
For the Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup heavy cream
Directions:
  1. For the cupcakes: Using your stand mixer, beat butter and sugars together until smooth and fluffy.
  2. Begin to add eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each one is added.
  3. Add pumpkin and mix well.
  4. In a medium bowl, stir flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together.
  5. Add the flour mixture to the mixer bowl, alternating with the milk. You will want to start and end with the flour mixture. Do not overmix.
  6. Divide batter in cupcake tin lined muffin/cupcake pan.
  7. Bake at 350* for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out of center of cupcake clean. I like to start checking mine at 15 minutes. Cool in pan for 5 to 10 minutes and then move to wire rack to cool completely.
  8. For frosting: beat together butter, cinnamon, and salt until creamy.
  9. Little by little, add the powdered sugar. Make sure it's smooth before adding more.
  10. Once you have added all of the sugar, add cream until desired consistency is reached.
  11. Pipe frosting onto cupcakes and decorate, if you'd like. I sprinkled mine with some gold sanding sugar and edible pearls.
