Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Frosting

by Laura

When planning my fall shower, I knew I wanted cupcakes as the dessert that had fall flavors. One that I settled on serving was pumpkin cupcakes with maple frosting.

My inspiration  for this was the recipe I have for melt in your mouth pumpkin cookies. The tender cookies are topped with a delicious maple frosting. So I used that frosting and paired it with a pumpkin cupcake recipe that I love. The maple is the perfect compliment to the pumpkin.

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Frosting

  • Author: Laura


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil (I used canola)
  • 1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Frosting
  • 1 cup butter
  • 6 Tbsp real maple syrup
  • 3 cups powdered sugar


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, oil, pumpkin and eggs. In another bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder and cinnamon together; add to pumpkin mixture and beat until well mixed.
  2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. For frosting, place ingredients in a bowl and blend until smooth and well combined. Use to frost on top of the cooled cupcakes. Makes 24 cupcakes.
