Preparation

Step 1

Cup Cakes:
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a bowl.

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy; beat in eggs. Blend in mashed pumpkin.

Stir in the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the milk, blending until batter is smooth after each addition; stir in chopped walnuts or pecans.

Spoon batter into well-greased and floured or paper-lined muffin pan cups. Fill about 2/3 full.

Bake at 375° for 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Frost with cream cheese frosting, whipped cream, or leave plain. Makes about 24 cupcakes.

Cream Cheese Frosting:
Combine all ingredients in large mixing bowl; beat well until smooth. Makes enough cream cheese frosting for a 2-layer cake.
