As the leaves change colors and the air becomes crisp, it’s the perfect time to indulge in the warm and comforting flavors of fall. One delightful way to do this is by baking your own Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through a step-by-step recipe to create these delectable treats that capture the essence of the season.


For the Cupcakes:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (canned or homemade)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


For the Cupcakes:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Set this dry mixture aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then, mix in the pumpkin puree, buttermilk, and vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix; just ensure there are no large lumps.
  6. Divide the cupcake batter evenly among the lined muffin cups, filling them about 2/3 full.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Let the cupcakes cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. In a mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese and butter until creamy and smooth.
  2. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and continue to beat until the frosting is fluffy and well combined.


  1. Once the cupcakes are completely cool, frost them generously with the cream cheese frosting. You can use a piping bag for a decorative touch or simply spread the frosting with a knife.
  2. Optionally, you can sprinkle a pinch of ground cinnamon or nutmeg on top of each cupcake for an extra burst of flavor and a touch of autumnal charm.
  3. Serve and enjoy your homemade Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes as a delightful dessert or a sweet treat for any fall gathering.


These Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes are the perfect way to celebrate the flavors of autumn. Whether you’re enjoying them at home or sharing them with loved ones, the warm spices and creamy frosting will undoubtedly make your taste buds dance with joy. So, embrace the season and savor every bite of these delightful fall-inspired cupcakes.
