Happy Thanksgiving

I took these pumpkin spice (the Man-Cub's choice) cupcakes to the Man-Cub's class for a Thanksgiving snack yesterday.

I adapted a recipe for a World War II ration cake that doesn't use any eggs.

Pumpkin Spice Cake

1 3/4 flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Mix dry ingredients in one bowl

1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup pumpkin
1/2 cup water
Mix wet ingredients in one bowl - then add to dry ingredients and mix well with a whisk. Then add 2 teaspoons vinegar and mix well and pour immediately into cupcake pans - this made 12 cupcakes - so when those came out I made 12 more.

The icing is just a buttercream icing made with Earth Balance and soymilk - I was going to add some tofutti cream cheese - but decided not to.

These were super easy moist and yummy!

  1. I see the cupcake decoration you mentioned. Good idea! Recipe sounds like a good substitute for spice cake. E
