Pumpkin Cupcakes / Balkabaklı Küçük Kekler

pumpkin-cupcakeI am definitely not a cupcake expert; however this recipe gets a lot of “bravo”s everytime I bake them – so I thought I might as well share. I didn’t do any decorations as I personnally prefer them like this. Decoration is totally upto your creativity and talent.

Whenever I want to have pumpkin soup I also make these cupcakes. This way I get less dishes as they both require boiled pumpkin chunkes. There is a saying in Turkish that goes “hitting two birds with one stone”. Nobody would like to hit birds with a stone, but I guess you understand what the saying really means.

Once you’ve boiled the pumpkin chunks, drain the water and turn them into a mash using a blender and set aside to cool. Meanwhile prepare the rest of the material as described in the recipe below. Don’t forget to add all the spices; especially the nutmeg powder makes a huge difference.

I hope you enjoy this somewhat spicy cupcakes, just when Halloween is approaching.

  1. Cut the pumpkins into chunks and boil with water to cover. Drain, use a blender to turn into a mash and set aside to cool.
  2. Break the eggs, add the sugar and a pinch of salt and use a mixer so they turn into a white thick foam.
  3. Add the 50 milliliter oil and the now-cool mashed pumpkin and continue to mix.
  4. Add 250 gram of flour together with the spices and baking powder and vanilla. Continue to mix for 2 more minutes.
  5. Pour into cupcake paper cups or your cupcake tray. Cook in a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees Celsius. Check whether ready by poking with a toothpick if it comes out clean, it proves that the cupcakes are ready. Enjoy.
