1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Pumpkin Spice
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp All Spice
1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt
3/4 cup Butter, softened
2 cups Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
15 oz Pumpkin Puree
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
3/4 cup Milk
Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup Butter, softened
1 tsp Vanilla
3 cups Powdered Sugar
1/4 cup Milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, all spice, and salt, and whisk together until combined.
In a medium bowl add butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, pumpkin puree, and coconut oil, and mix together with an electric hand mixer.
Slowly add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, along with milk, and mix together until a thick batter forms. In your greased USA Pan Swirl Cupcake Pan, drop batter into each cup, about 3/4 way full.
Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Slice the tops off so that they are even heights.
Turn out on to a cooling rack and let cool for 10 minutes.
In a separate bowl, make frosting by combining cream cheese, butter, vanilla, powdered sugar, and milk until a creamy frosting forms. Place in a piping bag and pipe on to each mini bundt cake, then top with a cinnamon stick to make it look like a mini pumpkin!
Taste, texture, and good lucks, this dessert has it all! with the perfect blend of pumpkin flavor and spice, and a creamy, dreamy cream cheese frosting on top, the taste of these mini bundt cakes are sure to make your Fall days even brighter. And just look at how cute these treats are! I mean, they look just like little pumpkins. How can you beat that?
Sometimes, in baking, it’s all about the look and the taste. Thankfully, with this recipe, you can have both!
