Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 24 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Beat white sugar and 3/4 cup butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy; add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat pumpkin into creamed butter mixture.
  3. Mix flour, pumpkin pie spice, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, baking powder, and ginger together in a bowl; stir into creamed butter mixture, alternating with buttermilk, until batter is smooth. Fill each muffin cup 3/4-full with batter.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in muffin tin for 10 minutes before transferring to wire rack.
  5. Beat cream cheese and 1/2 cup butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat confectioners' sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and vanilla extract into creamed butter until frosting is smooth. Spread frosting on each cupcake.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

These were very tasty cupcakes. I was hoping they would be a little lighter and less dense. My first pan ended up a bit under-done in the center, even though the toothpick came out clean, so I left the second pan in for about 27 minutes (better). The cinnamon cream cheese frosting is delicious!

thank you for the recipe, the cake was wonderful, it was moist and light. I admit I made a few small changes like I put in the sugar half white half brown and I mixed the spices myself. But I strongly recommend this to everyone!

Frosting was wonderful but cake was not worth the effort.
