Servings 24 cupcakes


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened at room temperature
  • 2 eggs large size, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup molasses do NOT use blackstrap molasses


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees, then line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon, then set the bowl aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar and butter together until it is light and resembles wet sand. Add in the eggs and mix on low to medium speed for about 30 seconds.
  • Slowly add in the flour mixture and milk, mixing on low to medium speed until the cake batter is smooth and creamy. Gently stir in the molasses, until it is incorporated throughout the batter.
  • Evenly fill the prepared liners with batter, filling about ⅔ full. Bake for 13-15 minutes until the tops of the cupcakes spring back to the touch.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely prior to frosting.
