Spiced Pumpkin Cupcakes | Waitrose & Partners

  • Published on Oct 20, 2019
  • Partner and Food Editor Silvana Franco bakes and decorates these little ghost cupcakes made with pumpkin and a touch of spice for Halloween. These could work at any time of year though by using canned pumpkin instead of fresh, and icing the top of each cupcake rather than decorating them as ghosts.
    Preparation time: 20 minutes
    Cooking time: 55 minutes
    Makes: 12
    350g pumpkin flesh, chopped into 2cm dice
    200g unsalted butter
    200g golden caster sugar
    280g self-raising flour
    ½ tsp baking powder
    ½ tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp mixed spice
    3 eggs, beaten
    4 tbsp milk
    150g unsalted butter
    75g soft cheese
    250g icing sugar
    120g marshmallow fluff
    24 edible eyes, to decorate (optional)

    I've just made these muffins and used Lakeland greaseproof paper cases but they've stuck to the paper and is so disappointing. Suggestions please though may be too late to make another batch now.

    Cute, but sooooo much sugar! I'll try making a low carb version instead.

    I would have been able to hear Silvana if there had been no music - why is it always necessary?!
