Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

I looooove these pumpkin muffins.  I thought the pumpkin muffin recipe on here already was really good, but these are my newest favorite!  They are so moist, and even better the next day!  You can make the cream cheese frosting but I thought they were delicious without it.

The Sister's Cafe

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup buttermilk
1-15oz can pumpkin puree
2 1/4 cup flour
2 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp alllspice
1 TB baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
In a large bowl, beat together sugars and oil. Add eggs and vanilla beating until well mixed. Add pumpkin and buttermilk until incorporated. In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients and whisk. Add to pumpkin mixture and beat until creamy. Grease or line 24 muffin cups (36-48 mini depending on size of pan) and fill 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 18-22 (10-15 for minis) minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool and frost with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting and top off with a little sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
3 1/2 -4 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
2-4 TB water
Beat together the cream cheese and butter. Add half of the powdered sugar, salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat until fully incorporated. Add the remaining powdered sugar and water, until desired consistency is reached. Beat on medium high until light and fluffy. Pipe or spread onto cooled cupcakes and finish off with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar! Enjoy:)
