This post is sponsored in conjunction with PumpkinWeek. We received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the PumpkinWeek recipes. However as always, all recipes, opinions and texts are 100% our own. 

Wait what? This is the last day of #PumpkinWeek 2018 and I’m suddenly kind of sad. A week’s worth of hundreds of pumpkin recipes is always a favorite for me.

I feel like we only just got started and it’s already coming to an end. But wait…

Have you seen the pumpkin recipes shared all week? It’s going to take months just to try all the recipes I have saved. So much pumpkin goodness, both savory and sweet.

We made these fun Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting to end our pumpkin week recipes with a full on pumpkin theme. Even topped with those cute little pumpkin candies.

And we made sure that all of our sponsors got a place in the recipe, because that’s important too. Without them, these recipes would NOT have been the same.

Honestly, I wish I could give them one of these Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting so I could thank them and they can see what deliciousness their products create.

Huge thanks to Dixie Crystals, Cabot Creamery Co-operative and Eggland’s Best for sending all of the bloggers products and coupons to help facilitate all these fun pumpkin recipes posted this week! Without you, it just wouldn’t be the same.

Let me remind you about #PumpkinWeek

#PumpkinWeek 2018 is (was?) hosted by Love and Confections and A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures!

A great big shout out, vitual hug and I guess a big dropping of virtual confetti to these two lovely ladies, for all of the hard work they did this week and prior.

Their jobs aren’t over either, even with this last day. An event this big requires a lot of planning and follow-up. Thank you Terri and Christie, for all you guys put up with and do. We adore you.

Ingredients

For the Pumpkin Cupcakes:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup Dixie Crystals brown sugar
  • ¼ cup Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
  • 2 large Eggland's Best eggs

  • ¼ cup Cabot unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (16oz) package Dixie Crystals Powdered Sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • candy, sprinkles, colored sugar for decorating (optional)

Instructions

For the Pumpkin Cupcakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 12 count muffin pan with cupcake liners and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
  3. In another bowl, mix the pumpkin puree, vegetable oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla extract until combined.
  4. Add the wet bowl of ingredients to the dry bowl of ingredients and mix just until everything is completely combined.
  5. Using a large spoon or an ice cream scoop, fill the cupcake liners about ⅔ full of batter.
  6. Bake in a 350°F oven for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of each cupcake comes out clean.
  7. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to finish cooling. Cool completely before frosting.

For the Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla extract until well blended.
  2. Beat the sugar in, a little at a time, blending well between additions. Add cinnamon and blend again.
  3. Once cupcakes are cooled completely, frost cupcakes as desired.
  4. Top with candies, sugars or anything else your heart desires.
