Pumpkin Cupcake

Yet another pintersting recipe has been successfully completed and this one is much sweeter than the last

I work with an office full of foodies, so there's no lack of treats on any given week, but what better season for food than Fall? Everything just tastes better. And y'all, there's nothing better than a little pumpkin in October {or November}.

Enter this:

recipe adapted from Sweet Verbena
Angels basically start singing when you bite into these cuppies.

Believe it or not, before I was a mommy blogger, I was a baking blogger. Yep, I had a food blog. So, trust me when I say I've baked my fair share of cupcakes. And this recipe? Well, it is beyond words.

I've categorized it as one of my top three cupcakes ever.

Have I talked you into tasting the recipe? Because I haven't told you the best part yet...It's extremely easy to prepare!

So, get to baking! You can thank me later.
