Vegan Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Call me basic, but I can’t get enough of pumpkins this time of year! The smell of pumpkin and spices baking in the oven on a cool day is heavenly. I don’t know if it’s the fall weather or the fact that I’m almost 8 months pregnant, but I’ve been craving desserts like mad. After last week’s Vegan Apple Cider Donuts, I figured it was time for cupcakes!

These Vegan Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting are easy to make and absolutely delicious! The vegan cream cheese frosting is the perfect compliment to the spiced pumpkin flavor. These cupcakes aren’t just “good for a vegan dessert”…they’re a good dessert!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 muffin trays with cupcake liners. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In a smaller bowl, stir together the wet ingredients.
  2. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk until combines. Pour batter into liners until it is 2/3 full.
  3. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool.
  4. For the frosting- add ingredients to a large bowl. Using a hand or stand mixer, mix the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until smooth. Add the sugar in 1/2 cup intervals, pausing to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the frosting to a piping bag and apply to cooled cupcakes.
