Spice Latte Pumpkin Cupcake

The pumpkin spice mixture remind me of fall and what is to come in terms of wonderful culinary adventures. The combination of Allspice, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cloves is a friendly reminder that The Holidays are around the corner. This recipe is so easy to prepare as it is a one bowl cake recipe. If you can find pumpkin puree at your grocery store, the recipe will take a few minutes. We do not have this luxury where we are, but when baking a pumpkin, we take advantage and make so many different dishes. I have included the recipe for Pumpkin spice mix, which takes a few minutes as well. The quantity of spices for this recipe will give enough to last you the entire season. I think I will use the spice mixture to make my mincemeat pies for the holidays, it is that good.
Fill your cupcakes liner halfway, leaving room for a little decoration or better, a cream cheese frosting with caramel. No need to go to Starbucks.
I love those recipes using only one bowl. This recipe will give you 12 large cupcakes.
Simply smother them with a Cream Cheese buttercream and you have yourself a wonderful dessert you can freeze and pull out at the last minute.

125 Gr. All purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Spice Mix
120 Ml. Vegetable oil – Canola Oil
2 Large Eggs
150 Gr. Brown Sugar
225 Gr. Pumpkin Puree
1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Preheat your over at 180 Celsius
In a large bowl and using a whisk, mix the vegetable oil, the eggs, pumpkin puree and vanilla. Beat until you have a smooth and lump free batter. Using a sieve pour the flour, soda, salt and pumpkin spices and sift everything over the wet mixture. Using a spatula, fold the flour until fully incorporated.
Pour the mixture in a cupcake tin using cupcake liners. It should give you 12 cupcakes.
Bake at 180 Celsius for 20-22 minutes.

2 Teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
2 Teaspoons Ground Cloves
2 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
2 Teaspoons Ground All Spice

I use a coffee grinder for all the spices and use about 1 large teaspoon of whole spices for each one. You will end up with approximately 3 tablespoons of Spice Mixture.

TIP DU JOUR : Once the spices are grinded, I stir in a handfull of rice and grind it into a fine powder. This will clean the grinder and remove any smell.
