Pumpkin Cupcakes and Give Back

I made these super easy pumpkin cupcakes last week, loved the color and so moist. I am slowly improving at baking you all inspire me to keep trying have a long way to go but as they say practice makes perfect :-)

Have a wonderful start to the week, everyone 


  • a little butter for greasing
  • 8 oz self raising four
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 -4 oz of sugar
  • 2 eggs 
  • one cup of milk
  • 1/2 a can pureed pumpkin 
  • 4 tablespoon of butter


  1. cream butter and sugar together
  2. then mix in eggs, milk, and pumpkin and flour 
  3. add to cupcake paper cups and bake at 350 for 10-15min until firm
These were great, a fun orange color and super moist.

Tis the Season - To give, I have decided through the month of December to give 10 cents for every 99 cent Chow and Chatter recipe app to World Vision Hunger charities to do my little part.....

  1. I just tweeted about how food in America was another case of the haves and have nots. Most of us food bloggers can afford to shop at WF or FMs and buy organic and sustainable, but many people cannot. I've recently read some very interesting articles on this subject and am formulating a post in mind about it. What a wonderful gesture on your part. Happy holidays to you and your family (cute hearing the baby in the background:)

  2. Way to go Rebecca! Love it! Still don't have an iphone but I'll pass the news.

    Dear Santa - I need to new cell phone!

  3. I just cannot get enough pumpkin products lately and these look delicious - as most everything on your blog! How generous of you to donate a portion of your proceeds from the app - very inspiring:)

  4. So moist, you don't even need frosting. We've had our share of pumpkin treats lately, that's for sure.

  13. Practice does make perfect-- I'm that way with cooking! I'm a better baker than I am a cook, but learned quickly that one cannot survive (or live past the age of 30) on brownies and pound cake :) They look delicious, and an excellent decision to donate to charity. Any charity would probably also like some of these cupcakes to spread holiday cheer-- just sayin' :)
