  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves

Notes:

Makes 18 cupcakes.

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line 18 cupcake cups with cupcake liners (I use a 6-cup cupcake/muffin tin and a 12-cup cupcake/muffin tin).

  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and salt. Set aside.

  3. In a stand mixer, beat together the eggs, brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree until smooth.

  4. Keep the the mixer on low and add the flour mixture a little at a time until fully incorporated. A large serving spoon is great for this.

  5. Divide the batter evenly between the cupcake cups, filling each of them about 3/4 full.

  6. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcakes comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and then transfer the cupcakes to a metal rack to cool completely.

  7. Then frost the cupcakes with Dreamy Cream Cheese Frosting.
