These pumpkin cupcakes with a cinnamon-cream cheese icing are a lovely treat in the run up to Halloween.
You can find tinned 100% pumpkin puree at Waitrose, via Ocado or in specialty shops. You can also make your own with this recipe.
These were absolutely delicious! They turned out light and fluffy and the icing was addictive! They disappeared fast when I brought them to the office, and it was hard for me to let them go! I used fresh pumpkin puree from my freezer that I had prepared a few months ago and needed to use, but I am sure the tinned pumpkin puree would also work well. Thanks so much for posting this recipe, my friends and I really enjoyed it! - 22 Dec 2009
