It’s time for pumpkin week, a week that I look forward to each year. We are starting off with Pumpkin Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting. Pumpkin is one of those fall flavors that I love. It also let’s me know we are getting close to my favorite holiday – Thanksgiving.
I love pumpkin in about any form with the exception of pumpkin pie. I have never liked it, and have even tried it several times over the years hoping that I will change my mind. However, it has not happened.
Today’s pumpkin recipe if for pumpkin cupcakes that all begin with a cake mix, with some extra ingredients including pumpkin, buttermilk, and sour cream. These cupcakes are amazingly moist. Then they get topped with a delicious chocolate frosting that has a bit of lightness to it from some whipping cream. The final touch is a sprinkling of mini chocolate chips.
Now, I think these cupcakes are best served chilled. Not right out of the fridge, just refrigerate them and bring them out about 5 minutes before eating them.
