What ingredients could I possibly use that would remind me of this fun occasion? It has to pumpkins! My son will also be happy as he can do the usual carving of a spooky face at the same time – waste not, want not! And to me, nothing says autumn like pumpkins do. So as Fright Night is drawing in and guys and ghouls will be gathering for tricks and treats, why not hand your friends and family a Pumpkin and Cinnamon cupcake – you can also try to convince them they are indulging in a healthy snack too.
With these Pumpkin and Cinnamon Cupcakes, you will have naturally bright orange cupcakes that are infused with the real flavour and goodness of the pumpkin. Made with such distinctive ingredients the cupcakes are moist inside, bursting with flavour and are complemented with a kick of cinnamon. The cream cheese buttercream just melts in your mouth with its silky smooth taste.
250g unsalted butter (I prefer Lurpak)
250g of full fat cream cheese
1kg of icing sugar
I like to keep my cream cheese buttercream quite simple. I don’t feel it needs much else, but for a little something extra you could try sprinkling some cinnamon, ginger or a squeeze of lemon juice. These cupcakes can be eaten as a little treat (my preference) or they can be the perfect dessert to any lunch or evening dinner. I do hope that you have enjoyed reading and that you give my recipe a try.
