Baking - Pretty Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

One of my favorite things about fall:

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes!

 You'll Need:

1 cup fresh pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended.

Pour into cupcake liners and bake for 21-23 mins.

They are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Let cool completely before frosting.
