Halloween Cupcakes With Pumpkin
This time, the muffins with baked pumpkin also contain cinnamon, and the dessert is delicious. I recommend these muffins, especially for the little ones.
I used a pumpkin for pie (attention: not from the round and yellow one, used for decorations), which I peeled and grated. I bought a 3 kg pumpkin, about half of which can be used for cooking, the other half being peeled.
For these cupcakes I used only 300g of pumpkin, so I have enough left for a future recipe, which I keep in the freezer.

Bake the pumpkin in oven.
Cut the baked pumpkin into cubes and pass through a processor until is puree.
Sift the flour and mix with baking powder and hint of salt.
Add in a bowl the soft butter, sugar, eggs, baked pumpkin puree, cinnamon, vanilla extract and mix for 2 minutes.
Add the flour to the mixture mix until is well incorporated.
We need to obtain a homogeneous consistency.
Line the muffin tray with muffin papers, and divide equally the muffin mixture into each paper to be uniform.
Bake the pumpkin muffins in the preheated oven at 180 °C (356 °F) about 15-18 minutes.
For safety – do the test with the toothpick.
After baking, let them cool completely.
Mix the pumpkin puree with the milk.
Mix the room temperature butter with the powdered sugar until it doubles in volume.
Add the baked pumpkin and milk mixture, vanilla extract, cinnamon and mix until you get a frothy composition.
Decorate the muffins and keep them cold until serving.
Enjoy, Good Appetite!
