Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes - moist pumpkin cupcakes with pecans and raisins and topped with cream cheese frosting!

Hi guys! I can’t stop making pumpkin desserts. I’ve only blogged a fraction of them because I don’t want to become a pumpkin blog.

But I can’t stop making them.

At one point, we had 4 containers of pumpkin treats on the counter and I finally had to take them to my gym and leave them for everyone else because I did not need 4 different pumpkin desserts staring at me every time I walked into the kitchen. 

But I made cupcakes today! Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes! They’re super moist, delicious pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon, ginger, and cloves so they taste like fall. Plus, they have chopped pecans and raisins inside. And they are topped with cream cheese frosting!

If you wanted to do a non-traditional Thanksgiving dessert or you need a sweet idea for Friendsgiving or even a Halloween party, these are perfect. They really easy to make, they taste amazing, and everyone always loves a cupcake!

Pumpkin White Chocolate Blondies - chewy pumpkin blondies with white chocolate chips. The perfect fall treat!

Originally published September 2009. Updated October 4, 2019. 

Okay, we’re several days into October which means it’s officially okay to share pumpkin recipes. 

This Pumpkin White Chocolate Blondies recipe is a really old one (I posted it over 10 years old!) but I make it every fall and I decided it’s photos needed a bit of a makeover. 

The blondies are perfectly chewy and taste like fall thanks to the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice. Plus, white chocolate just goes so well with pumpkin.

Since I’ve been kid free, I’ve been hanging out a lot more with adults and people I don’t really know and I’ve had to explain my blog a lot.

It always comes out, “Well, it’s mostly paleo but I do a lot of dog treats and cocktails and uhh… *nervously downs entire glass of wine* yeah, paleo.”

Remember that first date I went on where I gave the poor guy a full pitch of my future cookbook titled Booze and B*tch Biscuits?

Don’t take me out in public. I don’t know how to act.

Hey guys, how was the long weekend?

I did nothing all weekend. And by nothing I mean that I decided to rewatch Jane the Virgin and somehow made it through 2 1/2 season in 3 days.

Granted, I tend to just leave it on and walk away for hours at a time but still.

I always go back to that show when I’m super stressed because it’s funny and ridiculous and I just love it.

I did escape to my favorite trail with the husky (Good Water Loop in Georgetown) because I just really needed it to not see another human for a few hours.

I listened to a couple of my favorite podcasts, fell in the mud twice, and then stood under the waterfall before doing the 3 miles back to the car in wet shoes.

It was exactly what I needed.

Yes, this is my 2nd pumpkin recipe this week.

FOR THE RECORD, I originally had 5 scheduled and then realized that I was being insane and moved things around.

But you may still get 3 pumpkin recipes this week.

Look, I enjoy pumpkin.

I dunno what else to tell you.

Anyway. How’s the week? We’ve made it halfway through. I’ve only been in the principal’s office once this week so we’re calling it a win so far.

You guys, I went my entire school life never getting in trouble. No detention, no meetings with the principal, nothing.

Ever.

But I am in that principal’s office at least once a week with one of my boys.
