How to make it

  • In small saucepan, heat 1 cup cider to boiling. Continue to boil until reduced by half. Add lemon juice and let cool.
  • In mixing bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until well blended.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • In medium bowl,combine flour, corn starch, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt and mix well with a fork.
  • Add the dry ingredients alternately with the reduced cider, blending well.
  • Fold in pumpkin.
  • Pour batter into lined baking cups, to about 3/4 full.(I suggest lightly spraying the paper liners with no stick spray)
  • Bake at 350 for 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out JUST clean.
  • Let cool in pan for a couple minutes, then remove to cooling rack and cool completely.
  • For Frosting

  • Heat 1 cup of apple cider on high heat until boiling. Continue to boil until reduced to 1/4 cup. Set aside to cool.
  • Beat butter and cream cheese together until smooth and fluffy.
  • Add 2 cups of powdered sugar and vanilla.
  • Mix well.
  • Add the reduced cider syrup and mix again.
  • Add remaining cup of powdered sugar and beat well til fluffy and spreadable.
  • Frost cupcakes when they are cooled completely.
  • **Please note: If you want to do any kind of decorating or you like a lot of frosting, you will need to increase the recipe. How you see them iced in the pic is how the amounts I list iced 24 cupcakes. :)

    I hope you don't mind if I "steal" this recipe for a Halloween fundraiser we are doing at the restaurant for the local Humane Society. I have about a dozen desserts planned, but I really like the flavors you have combined here. I will decorate the top to look like owls. Thanks again for sharing!!

    Boy, those look good! Did you leave any frosting in the bowl? I'd be glad to clean it out for you. :)
