Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper muffin liners.
  2. Beat the pumpkin puree, white sugar, brown sugar, shortening, butter, milk, vegetable oil, and eggs together in a large bowl until smooth. Whisk the cake flour, dry buttermilk powder, cornstarch, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in another bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, stirring until mixed. Pour batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated until the center of the cupcakes spring back when touched, about 30 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

These were very good. It's hard to go wrong with pumpkin. I made them just as directed except that I used 1 cup of butter instead of 1/2 butter, 1/2 shortening. I also added a cream cheese frosting by mixing 8 oz of cream cheese with 1/4 cup butter, 1 pound of powdered sugar, & 2 tsp. of vanilla extract. A good old fashioned butter cream would taste great with these cupcakes too. -Chopped pecans would be fantastic in these, or even sprinkled on top with the frosting! - Also, if you don't have cake flour, don't fret. You can make it yourself. Use two cups all-purpose flour and remove 4 Tbsp of flour and replace it with 4 Tbsp of cornstarch. Sift this together very well, then use in the recipe in place of cake flour. -Lastly, you can definitely "healthify" this recipe by using applesauce in place of the vegetable oil, skim or 1% milk in place of whole milk, and swap out 3/4 cup of the sugar for Splenda.

I loveee pumpkin, and this was excellent! So fluffy! I'd like to try it with ginger next. Changes: applesauce instead of veggie oil, 2 cups of brown sugar and no white sugar, almond milk. I would put in less sugar next time because it is too sweet for this asian gal and her family!
