The recipe I used was based on this one: http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/8521/pumpkin-cupcakes.aspx
For the cupcakes you will need:
For the Cinnamon and Cream Cheese Icing:
I know it seems like quite a lot of ingredients but it is definitely worth getting all of the spices as they really add so much flavour to the cupcakes and smell amazing. I got most of my ingredients from Aldi which worked out so much cheaper. I got some pumpkin and bat sprinkles and some little pumpkin chocolates wrapped in foil from Asda. Also my autumnal silver and gold foil cake cases which I love are from Asda too. This recipe makes around 24 cupcakes which is perfect if you wanted to give them out to the children that knock on the door for trick and treat or just to give out to all of the family. If you don't want to make as many then just half all of the measurements.
You can buy tinned pureed pumpkin from Waitrose but as I don't live near one I made it myself. I just scooped the inside of a pumpkin out and cut it into smallish chunks. I boiled it for 20 minutes then mashed it up. It does make the baking time a bit lengthier but you could do this the day before or a couple of hours before you start.
These cupcakes are delicious, you don't get that claggy texture like you do with some cupcakes. They are really light and fluffy, I am upset that the shops will no longer be selling pumpkins as I won't be able to make any more until next year. Ah well...bring on the Christmas baking.
