Pumpkin Cupcakes from RIght Home!


 Cream Cheese Frosting is my number one favorite topping, but chocolate or vanilla frosting are also delicious options. Kids will have a ball decorating their own cupcakes; just put out some dried fruit, gummie candies and decorative icing for them to use.

  • Total Time : 1 hour
  • Prep Time : 15 minutes
  • Servings : 24


  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon each: cinnamon, ground cloves, ginger, nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • One 15-oz. can of pumpkin

  • Optional
  • 3/4 cup of walnuts, pieces
  • Toothpicks


step 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
step 2In a medium-sized bowl, sift together flour, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
step 3In a large bowl, place butter and sugar and beat together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
step 4Add the eggs to the wet ingredients (large bowl) one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.
step 5Stir 1/3 of the flour mixture (from Step 2) into the wet ingredients (large bowl), then 1/2 the can of pumpkin. Follow that with 1/3 flour mixture, then the rest of the pumpkin and then the remaining flour mixture.
step 6Pour the batter into each cup until three-quarters full.
step 7Bake cupcakes for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
step 8Let the cupcakes cool completely in their pan on a wire rack. Then take each cup carefully out of the tray.
step 9Frost each cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
step 10Add decorations on top. Some options: arrange candy corn in a wheel shape around the edge of the cupcake. Or use multicolored gummie candies or worms in a pile. Or slice into candied orange slices to make the features of a jack o' lantern (eyes, nose and mouth). Or use store-bought icing with decorating tips to draw faces.

I wanted to share a few recipes with you, to make your weekdays as easy as mine will be!

1 small zucchini (8 ounces) cut into 1/2- inch pieces
2 pickled jalapeno chiles, minced with seeds.
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves and steams, chopped
2 cans (15-19 ounces each) no-salt-added white kidney beans.
6 flour tortillas (8-inch diameter)
1/2 cup vegetable broth or chicken broth
1/3 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 garlic cloves, minced
