Fall is finally here! It’s that time of the year again where everything feels cozy and warm. The leaves are turning into beautiful shades of yellow and red, and the air smells of cinnamon and nutmeg. And what better way to welcome the season than by baking some delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte cupcakes!
These cupcakes are the perfect treat for any fall occasion. Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party or just want to enjoy a cozy night in, these cupcakes will surely please your taste buds. The best part? They’re super easy to make! Let’s get started.
First, preheat your oven to 350°F. While the oven is heating up, let’s prepare our ingredients. We’ll need:
– 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/2 cup brown sugar
– 1/2 cup white sugar
– 1 tsp baking soda
– 1/2 tsp baking powder
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp nutmeg
– 1/2 tsp ginger
– 1/2 cup vegetable oil
– 2 eggs
– 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
– 1/4 cup strongly brewed coffee
– 1/4 cup milk
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
Once you’ve gathered all of your ingredients, it’s time to mix them up! In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, white sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly combined.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and add in the vegetable oil, pumpkin puree, strongly brewed coffee, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix until all ingredients are evenly combined.
Next, pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in tough cupcakes.
Line a cupcake tin with cupcake liners and fill each cupcake liner about 2/3 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
While the cupcakes are cooling, let’s whip up some delicious frosting. We’ll need:
– 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
– 3 cups powdered sugar
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– 1/2 tsp cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp nutmeg
– 2 tbsp strongly brewed coffee
In a large bowl, beat the softened butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add in the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and strongly brewed coffee. Beat until all ingredients are evenly combined.
Once the cupcakes have cooled, it’s time to frost them! Using a piping bag or a spatula, generously frost each cupcake with the delicious frosting. And of course, we can’t forget the finishing touch – sprinkle some cinnamon on top of each cupcake for an extra kick of flavor!
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy your delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte cupcakes. Trust us, they won’t last long! Happy fall, y’all!
