Meatless Monday: Pumpkin Chocolate Cupcakes

IMG_8507I made ever so delicious treats on halloween for a friend’s party – so sorry that I didn’t post the recipe live time, but I had no time! I was racing to get out of the house so the hub & I could stroll around our neighborhood in costumes & then make it to our friends house in time for the bash.

Anywho…these cupcakes can be made for all the festive holidays coming our way! So get out your apron & start baking…

  1. Preheat oven to 350degrees & line a muffin tin with festive cupcake attire
  2. In a large bowl add IC flour, 1C sugar, 1/3C cocoa powder, 2t pumpkin pie spice, 1t baking powder, 1/2t baking soda, 1/4t salt – whisk & set aside
  3. In a small bowl add 2 eggs, 1 can of pumpkin purée & 1t vanilla extract – whisk
  4. Combine the liquid bowl into the dry bowl & mix well
  5. Bake until toothpick comes out clean (~30minutes), set aside & let cool

Once cooled either add vanilla/chocolate icing or dust with powdered sugar! Hope you enjoy this chocolaty pumpkin treat!
