Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

I also made these for our potluck luncheon at work. This was my first time trying the recipe. I liked them, but they were very very sweet. The cream cheese frosting tasted more like candy than cake frosting. However, I would still recommend them, as most people liked them.


2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 bag chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Cream the eggs and the sugar together in a bowl. Stir in the oil and pumpkin. Mix well. In a separate bowl, sift all the dry ingredients together. Stir into the pumpkin mixture, and mix well. Pour into greased cupcake pan (or you can use the liners). Bake for 10 - 15 minutes, until knife in center comes out clean. Let cool for 1 hour.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

8 oz package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1 - 2 teaspoons vanilla

Cream butter and cream cheese together in mixer. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla. When the cupcakes are cool (after about 1 hour), frost with the frosting.

This recipe makes about 20 - 24 muffins.
