Pumpkin cupcakes are great for the holidays, including Halloween and Thanksgiving. I make these cupcakes almost every holiday and my family loves it, even the little kids. I got this recipe from one of my teachers in school and I absolutely loved it.

Ingredients

Cupcakes:

  • 3 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick ®)

  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 4 eggs

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • ½ (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 4 ½ cups confectioners' sugar, divided

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease or line 36 muffin cups with paper liners.

  2. Beat baking mix, pumpkin puree, white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, 1/4 cup butter, milk, and pumpkin pie spice together in a bowl using an electric mixer on low speed until well mixed; spoon into the prepared muffin cups.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes. Cool cupcakes in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. Beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer on low speed until smooth and creamy. Beat 2 cups confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract into creamed butter mixture on low speed until well mixed; increase to high speed and beat until fluffy. Gradually pour 2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar into frosting and beat on medium speed until frosting is thickened.

  5. Spoon frosting into a resealable plastic bag and snip 1 corner. Pipe frosting onto the cooled cupcakes.

Cook's Note:

If frosting is too soft to mound, add additional confectioners' sugar, 1 teaspoon at a time.
