This is the season of the pumpkin. I love pumpkin, I love cupcakes, and everyone loves butter. These cupcakes are moist, rich, and okay a little decadent. I thought it would be fun to frost them with one of my favorite frosting recipes: Brown Butter Frosting. Yep, it’s as good as it sounds. ‘Tis the season to put pumpkin in everything. I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll love these.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Fill 2- 6 cup muffin pans with cupcake liners
In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle, place butter and sugar and combine until creamy. Approx. 2-3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla.
In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture on low speed, finally add milk.
Pour the batter into the prepared cupcake liners, 3/4 way up the liner. Bake for 20 minutes until inserted knife comes out clean, cool for 30 minutes.
Brown butter on medium heat until lightly toasted. Pour sugar, milk and vanilla in the bowl of a standing mixer. Start up the mixer on slow and add browned butter slowly until the frosting comes together.
*note this frosting has a tough consistency so you will need to apply to the cupcakes with a firm yet gentle touch.Recipes : Tags: baking, brown butter frosting, dessert, fall desserts, pumpkin cupcakes, thanksgiving
