It's the Great Pumpkin Cupcake, Charlie Brown

This recipe is from my friend Diana, who made me a sample of these delectable little gems. Love the cream cheese frosting! Check her blog out here:

Spiced Pumpkin Cider Cupcakes

½ cup softened butter

½ cup pumpkin

1 and ½ cup sugar

3 eggs

½ teaspoon vanilla

1 and ½ cups sifted flour

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon allspice

¼ teaspoons nutmeg

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

½ cup apple cider

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cream together butter, pumpkin and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix in vanilla

Sift together all the dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients alternately with cider, beating well after each addition.

Pour batter into cup cake liners. Bake 20 to 25 minutes until toothpick test comes out clean.
