These homemade pumpkin spice cupcakes are light, fluffy, and packed with real pumpkin flavor–perfect for pumpkin lovers! You can’t have a cupcake with out frosting so I topped these spicy cakes with a refined sugar-free meringue that’s toasted to perfection.
This is my first Autumn on the East Coast and I’m loving every second of it. The colors and the crisp mornings are bringing out so many pumpkin spice recipes that have been circulating in my brain. Like these unbelievably delicious pumpkin spice cupcakes with healthy meringue frosting. I contemplated for like day wether or not I should add chocolate to these cupcakes to make them s’mores pumpkin cupcakes. Ultimately, I decided to keep them simple but if you wanted to throw in some chocolate chips, I don’t think it would be a bad thing…am I right?
If you have never made meringue before it looks and sounds a little intimidating but I assure it’s not! These cupcakes are actually simple AF and the meringue can be whipped up in a bowl with a $10 hand held electric mixer. As for the perfectly toasted frosting, popping these cakes into the oven on broil for 1-2 minutes will do the trick. You can count on this blog to never do anything too complicated. 😉
