In my last post, I shared with you that I also baked pumpkin cupcakes for my guests at the book club meeting that I hosted last week. As we are about to celebrate Thanksgiving, I thought now is the perfect timing to share this recipe with you.
I usually serve those cupcakes during my Thanksgiving dinner. They will be a great addition to your Thanksgiving dessert table. The recipe is simple and they are delicious. Enjoy!
- 1 cup of Sugar
- 1 cup of All-Purpose Flour
- 1/3 cup of Vegetable Oil
- 2 Eggs
- ½ tsp of Vanilla Extract
- ¾ cup of Pure Pumpkin Puree
- 1 tsp of ground allspice
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp of Baking Soda
- ½ tsp of Baking Powder
- ¼ tsp of Salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, line a 12-piece muffin tin with liners, and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together the sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla, eggs, and pumpkin puree.
Add the flour, the baking powder and soda, the cinnamon, the allspice, the salt, and the nutmeg. mix just until everything is incorporated.
Using a louche or an ice cream scoop, fill the liners about 2/3 of the way full with the batter.
Bake for 25 minutes or until when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let them cool completely.
Cream cheese Frosting
- 4 oz of Cream Cheese, at room temperature
- 2 Tbsp of Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
- 1 ½ cups of Confectioner Sugar
- ½ tsp of Vanilla Extract
- 1/8 tsp ground allspice
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp of whipping cream
In a mixing bowl, use the hand mixer to cream together the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla. Add the confectioner sugar and continue to whisk until it’s all incorporated. Add the whipping cream and whisk until everything is combined.
Once the cupcakes are completely cool, cover them with the frosting.
I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones. Let me know if you would serve those cupcakes.
Oh, yum! I love pumpkin anything! I may just try these for Thanksgiving, they look delicious!

Such a delicious cupcake recipe for this fall season. I will make some this weekend for my kids. I am sure they’ll love it. And I am going to make sure I will make enough cupcakes for second or third servings!
I love cupcakes and your frosting makes your cupcakes even more inviting. Would I wait to have a bite? Oh my! I’d be too anxious if I smelt the aroma. Yummy!
They did smell good and I am thinking of something else to use the frosting
I love pumpkin anything, so I am sure I would love those cupcakes! They look so delicious!
They were delicious. We love pumpkin as well, the next day, we made pumpkin waffles.
This is just perfect. We still do not have a dessert for Thanksgiving and we’d love to try this. It will be my first time to make one but the recipe seems to be pretty simple. Thank you for sharing it and wish me luck. 🙂
My older daughter is the baker of the family, so I don’t bake often. These cupcakes were pretty simple and easy to make, Clarice.
I’m getting ready to do my Thanksgiving baking, and these look yummy! Thanks for sharing your talents!

I love everything about pumpkin, it’s not only delicious it is nutritious too. I’m sure my kids will love it.
My kids love everything about pumpkin the same, Loreli, we had pumpkin pie, pumpkin waffles, and my daughter even made a smoothie with the pumpkin puree which was delicious.

Great recipe for Pumpkin cupcakes. Love how you didn’t waste money on “pumpkin spice” but rather made your own blend naturally with cinnamon and allspice! If you added a touch of nutmeg it may be a perfect pumpkin spice blend.
I’ve never tried pumpkin cakes earlier. They look tasty. Id love to try them!
I love pumpkins & reading this recipe sharing now making me superb craving to have a bite on the pumpkin cupcake 😀 cheers, siennylovesdrawing
This cupcake recipe looks delicious! I’ve saved it for my fall/thanksgiving and even Christmas baking!
Awesome, I hope you like them as much as we did.
