Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes are easier and quicker to make than a pumpkin pie but still have all the flavor you want. Topped with fresh whipped cream these two-bite treats will be your new favorite fall dessert!



  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 15-oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk

Whipped Cream

  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 4 TBSP powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda salt and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl/bowl of an electric mixer combine the pumpkin puree, sugars, eggs, vanilla and milk. Mix until fully combined and no bumps appear.
  4. Fill each cupcake liner just past 1/2 way full.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes. Let the cakes cool completely in pan. They will sink a bit while cooling. (This provides a perfect area for a dollop of whipped cream)
  6. Once completely cooled put in the fridge.

Whipped Cream
