pumpkin cupcakes

mmm. I just made these today. I admit they came from Martha Stewart originally. But in my defense I actually got the recipe from this site:
They were vereh yummeh, though I added ground cloves, left out the allspice because I didn't have any, and used more nutmeg than they called for. They are pretty much solid butter. Pumpkin and butter. But sooooo gooood. I put chocolate frosting on, and for Thanksgiving I'll probably try making it as a layer cake with chocolate/cinnamon frosting.
Makes about 24 cupcakes.

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1 cup packed light-brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled

4 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 can pumpkin purée (15 ounces)

1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice; set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together, brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter, and eggs. Add dry ingredients, and whisk until smooth. Whisk in pumpkin purée.

3. Divide batter evenly among liners, filling each about halfway. Bake until tops spring back when touched, and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes, rotating pans once if needed. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool completely.
