Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

We love baking in the fall! Making the house smell delicious and enjoying festive treats...and DreamFarm makes it easy with their handy kitchen tools like the 'Levoons', leveling spoons! (available at Weekends!)

Make these: Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting


1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 and 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil

2 large eggs

3/4 cup packed light or dark brown sugar

1 cup (225g) canned pumpkin puree

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Optional: sprinkles

For the Frosting

8 ounces full-fat block cream cheese, softened to room temperature

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

3 cups confectioners’ sugar, plus an extra 1/4 cup if needed

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with cupcake liners.

  2. Measure your ingredients with DreamFarm Levoons (available at Weekends!)

  3. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice together in a large bowl. Set aside. Whisk the oil, eggs, brown sugar, pumpkin, and vanilla extract together until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and use a mixer or whisk until completely combined. Batter will be thick.

  4. Pour/spoon the batter into the liners – fill only 2/3 full to avoid spilling over the sides. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.

Make the frosting: In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle or whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese and butter together on high speed until smooth and creamy. Add 3 confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and salt. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, then switch to high speed and beat for 2 minutes. If you want the frosting a little thicker, add the extra 1/4 cup of confectioners sugar (I add it).

Frost cooled cupcakes and add sprinkles!
