I have a new favorite recipe for fall/winter sweets! Actually, this is pretty much tied with my recipe for apple pie cookies, but it definitely wins for cupcakes.
I roughly followed the recipe found here, but this is what actually went into these cupcakes:
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
½ cup pureed sweet potato
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground cinnamon
I combined all the ingredients (not in any particular order) then baked them for 15 minutes at 375 degrees. I topped them with my roommate’s cream cheese frosting recipe:
8 oz plain cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
These ingredients were blended until evenly combined, and spread on the cupcakes. I sprinkled a little more cinnamon on top and then, finally, enjoyed my cupcakes!
