In a seperate bowl, mix the pumpkin, egg, evaporated milk and vanilla essence.
Add the pumpkin mixture to the flour mixture, and fold gently until all ingredients are combined.
Pour the mixture into a prepared muffin/cupcake tray.Sprinkle the sugar and mixed spice that you mixed up before, on top of the cupcakes. This will give them a nice crunch on top!
Place in oven for 20 – 25 minutes.
Allow cupcakes to cool before turning them out onto wire cooling rack. Let cool completely before icing.Pioneer Woman recommends the cream-cheese frosting. It does go well with it, but you don’t need very much icing at all!
They’re just as good without icing!
