Spiced Pumpkin EVOO Cupcakes with Cinnamon-Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Ingredients

The Cupcakes

2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
1 15 oz. can solid pack pumpkin (1 3/4 cups)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup Devo Arbequina EVOO
4 large eggs

Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line three standard muffin tins or one giant muffin tin with cupcake papers. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In a separate large bowl, combine the pumpkin, sugars and extra virgin olive oil. Add the eggs one at a time beating after each addition.

Cinnamon-Vanilla Buttercream
