Pumpkin cupcake and right away an apology to start this post. why? Because I’ve made numerous recipes with pumpkin puree this season and I don’t want to overwhelm you with it. However, there was an experience at the DM Markt that finally made me change my mind again. I discovered pumpkin puree in a jar in the seasonal Christmas display. This really blew me away, because pumpkin puree is really rare on German supermarket shelves. You can do so many great things with it.

A cupcake always comes in handy for me when I can’t decide whether to have a dessert or a cake. The good thing is that you mix it before eating, feast deliciously and in the meantime the cake bakes in the oven. As soon as the main course is eaten, you get the dessert virtually fresh out of the oven.

Let’s get to the ingredients. Gluten-free flour, raw cane sugar, baking powder, pumpkin spice, pumpkin puree, vegetable milk and unflavored oil. I put all of this in a bowl and work it into a smooth dough. This is then poured into 2 cups and off it goes into the oven. When making only one portion, it makes sense to fill the dough directly into the cup.

For this delicious and easy recipe, I came up with another delicious topping. Directly over the cup cake I give a dollop of vegan vanilla curd and top that with caramelized pecans at the end. For this I put a handful of Pecans in a hot pan, toast them briefly and then add maple syrup. After 2 minutes, the caramelized nuts are ready and go straight into the cup. Anything left over nuts can be snacked on the same way.
