Are you a fan of pumpkin recipes?

Then you will most definitely want to make this scrumptious Pumpkin Cupcake recipe!

I’ll be the first to admit that my family is not really pumpkin crazy. It’s just not something we go out of our way to consume.

I was sent this awesome Pumpkin Scoop from GoodCook though (along with all of this other awesomeness! Happy Thanksgiving y’all!) and it inspired me to whip up something pumpkin!

This recipe is fairly simple and quick and you can either make the icing from scratch (like I did) or you can easily just top these with some store bought Cream Cheese icing and call it a day!

If you are craving something pumpkin…you’ll love these pumpkin cupcakes!

Be sure to check out the Good Cook line of products online and at your local retail stores as well. They are great quality and great value!

In addition, Good Cook is holding The Ultimate Thanksgiving Twitter party on Monday November 25th at 6pm EST under the hashtag #Thanksgivingtips. Hurry and RSVP because the first 500 who RSVP will get a FREE Turkey Lifter!

I’ll write more about this awesome Twitter Party later, but be sure you plan to attend because 3 winners will receive all of this:

  1. Love this recipe. Had I without any frosting and it’s a good coffee cake. I’m sure with the frosting it will be oh so wonderful.
