Fall is finally here, and what better way to celebrate the season than with some delicious pumpkin spice cupcakes! We’ve scoured the internet and found two amazing recipes that are going to have your taste buds dancing with joy.
Let’s start with the pumpkin spice latte cupcake recipe from The PKP Way. This recipe combines the traditional fall flavor of pumpkin with the beloved coffee drink, pumpkin spice latte. To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, pumpkin pie spice, milk, pumpkin puree, and eggs until well combined. Pour the batter into cupcake liners and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Once your cupcakes have cooled, it’s time to make the frosting. In a separate bowl, beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and pumpkin pie spice until light and fluffy. Add in some brewed espresso, and mix until well combined. Spread the frosting over the cupcakes, and top with some whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. These cupcakes are the perfect way to indulge in the flavors of the season while satisfying your sweet tooth.
