Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Lisa Lewis 56

"Delicious, light and fluffy! These taste of Fall, and the crystallized ginger gives then a lovely little zing. Even people who don't like pumpkin love these cupcakes. These disappear as fast as I can set them out!"

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 24 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners. Whisk together the flour, pudding mix, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ground ginger, allspice, cloves, and crystallized ginger in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in the vanilla and pumpkin puree with the last egg. Stir in the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

THIS is one of the most perfect cupcakes I have ever had. They are moist, flavorful & perfectly spiced. I chose not to use the chopped crystalized ginger, but used 1 1/4 tsp. ginger (total) in...

Wow, these cupcakes are outrageously delicious. I made a couple of modifications: (1) instead of using 1 cup butter, I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce; and (2) I only use...

Just as a warning, the mixture had tons of tiny flecks of butter-sugar no matter if you use room temperature eggs or cold ones. Go on and add the dry ingredients and the lumps will disappear. I...

I made this as a cake, and it came out unbelievably moist. I used a mix of unbleached and oat flour, and I used fresh pumpkin, which I baked and then pureed with the wet ingredients. The market ...
