“Too may pumpkin cupcake recipes result in a heavy cupcake closer in texture to a muffin;others are lighter but way too sweet.To me,this makes a nice middle of the ground cupcake:light and airy,and not very sweet-the perfect foil for rich buttercream frosting.”

  2. Mix all dry ingredients.
  3. Beat eggs slightly .Add pumpkin puree.Mix well.Add in melted butter and vanilla.
  4. Add in the dry ingredients,about 1/2 cup at the time,mixing well after each addition but not overbeating the batter.
  5. Line a cupcake tin with paper cupcake cups.Divide the batter evenly into the cups,about 3/4 full.I find this makes exactly 15 cupcakes in my pan.
