Pumpkin Spiced Cupcakes

Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Who doesn't love baking? Especially during this time of the year, there's just something so comforting about the warm and sweet smells that fill the air of a home baked cake. There's nothing more appropriate than a good piece of pumpkin cake during the Autumn and so today I thought I'd share with you all how I made these pumpkin spiced cupcakes. The following recipe serves 12 cupcakes.

  • 150g self raising flour
  • 150g butter
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 1 tin of pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon 
  • 4 tablespoons of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Orange food colouring
  • Icing sugar - For buttercream icing you will need 75g butter and 4 tablespoons of milk. For glace icing just add 4 tablespoons of water.


  • Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C)
  • Place butter into a bowl and stir until a smooth consistency.
  • Then begin to add flour, eggs, sugar and milk into the bowl and continue to mix together.
  • Lastly, add in the pumpkin and cinnamon. Stirring again until smooth.
  • Place the mixture into your cupcake cases and place into the oven for 25-30 minutes.
  • To make the icing follow the instructions above depending on whether you wish to make buttercream or glace icing. Begin to add in your orange food colouring, depending on how bright you want your icing to be add as a little or as much as you like.
  • Once the cakes have cooled, apply your icing and decorate as you wish. I opted to use these cute halloween glow in the dark signs, as well as sprinkling on some extra cinnamon and Reese's pieces. Yum! It's halloween so there's no more of a perfect time than this to get creative!

I hope you all have a fang-tastic halloween, leave me a comment down below with what your plans are for halloween this year. This is such an easy recipe to follow and I cannot resist a good piece of pumpkin this season. Until next time lovelies,
