  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 15 ounces pumpkin puree
  • ¾ cup evaporated milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • cup cornstarch
  • whipped cream and cinnamon, optional topping


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients except the cornstarch.
  • In another medium mixing bowl, whisk the wet ingredients and the cornstarch.
  • Whisk the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, whisking only until the ingredients are incorporated. Do not over whisk the filling.
  • Spray a muffin pan with non stick spray, or use only Baker’s Joy baking spray.
  • Pour the filling into the prepared pan, filling each ⅔ full.
  • Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let the cupcakes sit in the pan for 20 minutes.
  • Remove each cupcake from the pan and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.


  • It is important to NOT use a handheld or stand mixer for this recipe.
  • Paper liners tend to stick to these cupcakes so it is best to just spray your muffin pan really well instead.
  • The extra hour in the fridge is needed to ensure the cupcakes are properly set.
  • Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to keep a close eye on your cupcakes as the suggested baking time approaches.
