Maple Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

A wonderful holiday recipe using our Pumpkin Spice Olive Oil, pairing perfectly with Jacuzzi's Pina Asolo Prosecco!


Ingredients
  • Cupcakes
  • 1/4 cup Olive Press Pumpkin Spice Oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger and nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup + 2 tbsp all purpose flour, sifted
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions
  • Cupcakes
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. In a large bowl mix together all the wet ingredients. In another bowl mix together the flour and spices. Add the flour mix to the wet ingredients and be careful to not over mix. Using an ice cream scoop (large or small) scoop the batter into muffin cups so they are 2/3 full. Bake 15-18 minutes until set. Let cool completely before frosting.
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
    1. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract.

    Notes: makes 24 large or 48 minis
