Moist and tender Pumpkin Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting. A tantalizing combination of salty and sweet!
When I close my eyes and try to dream up the perfect cupcake, two things come to mind.
Pumpkin and Peanut Butter.
Pumpkin cupcakes are so moist with earthy depth and a touch of spice. While peanut butter frosting… is there anything better?
The nutty sweetness of peanut butter frosting is perfected by a good dose of salt, making it the salty-sweet creamy dreamy end-all of frostings. In my opinion, of course.
Pumpkin Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting might just be my best cupcakes ever. I’m not kidding.
I know, I know. This is not the most obvious flavor combination, but I promise you, it works!
For bonus points, using melted butter and pumpkin puree as the liquids in the batter, means there’s no need to mix the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls. You can actually use the same bowl through the entire baking process for easy clean up.
See? I knew you would like these.
Another endearing quality of these Pumpkin Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting is that because they are so moist, they have a longer shelf-life, so to speak, than other cupcakes. I covered several of them in plastic let them sit on the counter for 5 days last week. And you know what? They didn’t dry out like most cupcakes.
Pumpkin Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting are perfect for your Halloween party this year, and would also make a wonderful alternative treat for pumpkin pie haters on Thanksgiving!
Pumpkin + Peanut Butter is a sure deal.
Try them… You’ll see!
