The Best  Pumpkin Cupcakes

Soft, fluffy and ultra moist, these pumpkin cupcakes are made with brown butter for the most delicious fall treat. These are truly the best pumpkin cupcakes!


Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Give the pan a shake occasionally and continue to cook until butter turns golden brown.


Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners until about three-quarters full. Bonus points for using fun fall cupcake liners.


Bake the pumpkin cupcakes until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle. Let them cool on a wire rack.


As the cupcakes cool, make the frosting. While lots of flavors match with pumpkin, I love this bourbon caramel frosting.

After one bite, I have no doubt you'll agree that these are the best pumpkin cupcakes! Enjoy these little fall treats.

These cupcakes were so delicious! I loved every bite and the bourbon caramel frosting was amazing!
