How ADORABLE are these mummy cupcakes?! Courtesy of the wonderful food blog Love and Olive Oil, here is the scrumptious Pumpkin Chip Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Butter Cream recipe for you!

{P.S. I told you it would be Halloween-heavy today!}


1 cup canned pumpkin
1/3 cup 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
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon each ground cloves, nutmeg, and ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

2 large egg whites
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into tablespoons


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line muffin pan with cupcake liners.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together pumpkin, oil, sugar, soy milk, and vanilla.

3. Sift in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices.

4. Gently whisk by hand until just combined, don’t use an electric mixer or overmix the batter as it may become too gummy. Once combined, fold in the chocolate chips.

5. Fill liners with 1/4 cup batter (cups should be approximately 2/3 full).

6. Bake for 22 to 24 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

7. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely before frosting.

8. For frosting, in a heatproof bowl set over (not in) a pan of simmering water, whisk together egg whites, sugar, and salt.

9. Cook, whisking constantly, until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is warm to the touch.

10. Transfer to the clean bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on medium speed until fluffy and cooled, about 15 minutes. Raise speed to high; beat until stiff peaks form. Reduce speed to medium-low; add butter, 2 to 3 tablespoons at a time, until fully incorporated.

11. Spread or pipe onto cooled cupcakes.

Aaaaaand they're done! Do you think you'll make them? I'd love to know!
