Spice Cupcakes with Maple Frosting are the perfect way to welcome fall. The flavor combo of cinnamon and maple will quickly become a favorite.
I am definitely on a maple quick lately. I’ve been adding maple flavoring into everything I can get my hands on! This week it was these spiced cupcakes which are spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. The addition of maple buttercream on top with a sprinkle of pecans just screams Fall!
How to Make Spice Cupcakes
- I like to use a cupcake liner with my cupcakes. You can just spray the muffin tin with a baking spray but I like the look of a cupcake liner and it helps keep them from drying out after you remove them from the muffin tin. It just makes for a prettier presentation.
- Bring your ingredients to room temperature before mixing, they will combine more smoothly.
- Don’t overfill your muffin tins. After lining my muffin tin with cupcake liners I scoop in my cupcake batter with this scoop to make sure I end up with evenly sized cupcakes.
- After baking, allow the cupcakes to cool for only a couple of minutes in the muffin tin and then remove them to a cooling rack. The heat from the pan can cause the cupcakes to continue cooking and over bake.
The frosting has maple syrup and brown sugar and is truly divine. You can find the recipe here. Combine the maple along with the cinnamon and nutmeg blend, you have a truly wonderful Fall inspired treat.
