Moist, spicy and sweet Pumpkin Cupcakes topped with a delectable Maple Cream Cheese Frosting.
I can’t believe I lasted this long to finally share my first of the season pumpkin recipe. With Fall only one week away, I think this is as good time as any to start stuffing your beautiful face with pumpkin anything, but you need to start with these Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Frosting. Oh me gosh! The frosting… unbelievable!
But, you know what… there’s a really awesome story behind these spicy and sweet, mouthwatering little cakes. I am sharing my favorite cupcake recipe with you to help spread the word for a great cause!
For this blog post, I teamed up with OXO in support of, Bake a Difference. In return, OXO will donate $100.00 per post to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit organization founded in 2008 by two OXO employees, inspired by their son’s battle with cancer.
This year OXO will donate up to $100,000 to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer through specially marked baking tools, bake sale matches and other fundraising efforts. For every specially marked item sold, OXO will donate 25 cents in support of pediatric cancer research as part of its $100,000* pledge to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. (Look for specially marked OXO products at participating retailers.)
If you would like to help, please keep an eye out for this sticker !
To help me along the way with these cupcakes, OXO sent me a fabulous prize pack which included these beautiful measuring spoons, measuring cups, bent icing knife, and a cupcake corer. Honestly, up until now, I’ve only used an apple corer to do that job – I’m so bootleg, I know – but now I feel like a fancy baker with her own kitchen tools made specially for cupcake making! YAY ME! And I am in love with this little tool!! It does the job, seamlessly.
This is a cupcake recipe that everyone needs to have. Pumpkin season should not start without them. They’re truly decadent! The frosting just takes them way over the top. Like, BEYOND! Grab the kiddos, or the cats, whatever floats in your kitchen, and whip these up, stat!
