Fall Cupcakes

With the touch of Fall in the air, I am sure kitchens all over are getting prepped with all things pumpkin or spiced. These vanilla cupcakes can make a great addition to your menu since the carmel and nuts add the perfect flavor for any season of the year.

Caramel Vanilla Cupcakes with Pecans

  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup cream
  • 2 tbs vanilla
  • optional: chopped pecans

1. In a bowl, cream your butter and sugar.

2. Add your eggs one at a time and then add your cream and vanilla

3. In another bowl, sift your flour and baking powder together.

4. Slowly, add this dry combination to your liquid mixture. Your mix will be somewhat thick. You may also add your chopped pecans at this time if you desire them.

Spoon your mix into cupcake liners.

Easy Cupcake Frosting Tip: For topping, I whipped some heavy cream. If you add it to a sandwich bag and cut the tip off, you can make an instant piping bag. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Next, I drizzled some delicious caramel sauce on top.

If you find your caramel sauce a little thick, heat in the microwave for a few seconds to allow easy drizzling.

Decorate with more pecans.

    All you did for the frosting was whip heavy cream?

    Silly question, but I don’t understand where the brown sugar was used? Is it mixed into the flour and baking powder?

    These look really good! But I was just curious, on the frosting you just whipped heavy cream? Nothing else was added?
