Description

Topped with a delicious cream cheese frosting, these pumpkin cupcakes are filled with the flavors of fall. Made with grated pumpkin, as opposed to pumpkin puree, these cupcakes are reminiscent to carrot cake. Raisins, orange zest, and cinnamon add warmth and luxurious flavor to these pumpkin cupcakes. Bake time is 20 to 25 minutes. Put into the refrigerator after baking and icing to encourage the release of all the flavors.
