Pumpkin Swirl Cupcakes – The Most Decadent Dessert


Pumpkin swirl cupcakes are a decadent treat that brings fall to life. They are a mini cheesecake with that pumpkin goodness and rich flavor. I always make them up for dinner parties and many social events even if it is not fall. My guests just rant and rave about them and ask for more. I sometimes get very generous and give them the recipe. Believe me, they always come back for more. Served with a cup of tea, coffee, or glass of milk they are simply to die for.

As always, there are certain minor changes you can make to the recipe. For example you can vary the amount of pumpkin puree and sugar added. The all spice is optional but provides a wonderful addition to the flavors. More or less cinnamon can be added as well. Personally, I like like lots of it as cinnamon is my favorite spice. One important tip is to allow them to COOL COMPLETELY before taking them out of the muffin liners and serving. I even put and keep mine in the fridge.

NOTE: This recipe will give you about 6 cupcakes. For more simple double or triple. 

Give them a try and let us know what you think.
