pumpkin pie cupcakes #fall #dessert

pumpkin pie is one of my favorite things about fall. truly.

but the truth is, i’m far too lazy to go all making myself a pumpkin pie just because i crave it!

not true. i totally lied just now, because that’s really exactly what i did yesterday.

i get in the mood and nothin will stop me.

man, i was sort of worried these would be all cakey and not as much like the dense quasi-creamy texture of pie, but i was wrong.

these are basically little pumpkin pies, but sturdy enough to grab with your hands.

they came together so easy that i’m afraid my fall is going to all pumpkin pie…

perfect pumpkin pie cupcakes


  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 15 oz pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Cool Whip or whipped cream

what to do

preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners, be sure to spray them with cooking spray very well or the cupcakes will stick!

combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. combine remaining ingredients in a mixer until smooth, then add in wet ingredients until fully incorporated.

fill each cup with 1/4 cup of the batter. bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the centers no longer jiggle. let cool for 20 minutes, then chill before topping with cool whip or whipping cream.
