Okay, these are AMAZING!  It is a MUST TRY recipe!!!  MMM.  Of course, 12 is not enough so I double it:)

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cinnamon Icing

Makes 12 cupcakes

Cupcake Ingredients:

1 cup canned pumpkin

1/3 cup canola oil

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup soy milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chocolate chips – I added almost 1 cup of chocolate chips

Cinnamon Icing (recipe below)

 

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line muffin pan with cupcake liners (metal works better– would spray the muffin liners with cooking spray)

2. In a medium bowl, stir together pumpkin, oil, sugar, soy milk, and vanilla.  Sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt.  Stir together with a fork– don’t use a handheld mixer, as it will make the batter gummy.  Once well combined, fold in the chocolate chips.

3. Fill liners two-thirds full.  Bake for 22 to 24 minutes.  Transfer to a wire rack and let fully cool before icing.

 

 

Cinnamon Icing – I doubled the icing recipe

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons margarine, melted (can use benechol or other nonhydrogenated margerine)

1 tablespoon soy milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Directions:

1. Place sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.  Add the margarine, soy milk, and vanilla and stir with a fork until smooth.  Keep at room temperature until ready to use.  The mixture should look opaque and honey brown.  If it’s glistening a lot or looks too liquid, add a little extra powdered sugar.

 

To assemble:

1. Take a small plastic sandwich bag and cut out a tiny hole in one edge or fit a pastry bag with a small-holed decorating tip.  Fill the bag with icing and pipe it out Jackson Pollack-style onto the cupcakes.  You may also opt to pipe it in zig-zags, lines, or swirls.  Let the icing set at room temperature or refrigerated.
