Gluten Free Pumpkin Cupcakes with Browned Butter Cream Cheese Frosting and Sugared Pecans

Hello my gluten free friends! I hope you don't find it annoying of me that I've been posting nothing but gluten free versions of recipes from my other blog lately. Good news is, I've been working on some gluten free breads lately so you may be seeing those in the nearish future.

You can rest assured that this recipe is tried and true and that I'm not kidding when I say they're the most moist and delicious pumpkin cupcakes in all the land, because it's based one of my most all-time popular recipes: Grandma's Banana Bread Muffins. I've used this recipe for zucchini bread and carrot cake too. It's pretty much the most foolproof recipe I know of. When gluten free, I find swapping out all-purpose flour for some plain rice flour works fine. No xanthan gum or other freaky flours necessary.

    • Gluten Free Pumpkin Cupcakes with Browned Butter Cream Cheese Frosting and Sugared Pecans
    •  Makes a dozen
    • Cupcake Ingredients: 
    • 1 cup pumpkin puree
      2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
      1 cup sugar
      1 cup rice flour (I usually use white rice, but brown is okay too)
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      3/4 teaspoon baking soda
      1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
    • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
    • Frosting Ingredients:
    • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
    • 8 oz. cream cheese
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • Sugared Pecan Ingredients:
    • 2/3 cup pecans 
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar

    • Cupcake Instructions:
    • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Combine the pumpkin, eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar. Stir together the remaining ingredients and add to the pumpkin mixture, mixing just until blended. Bake in a muffin tin for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

    • Frosting Instructions:
    • Cook the butter in a pan on the stove until browned. Add the cream cheese, vanilla, cinnamon, and powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Chill the frosting until it's pretty cool and then beat until fluffy.
    • Pecan Instructions:
    • Combine the pecans, sugar, and butter in a pan on the stove. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is all melted. Cool on a piece of greased parchment paper.

  8. For both gluten-free and non-gluten-free eaters, the recipe for Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cupcakes with Browned Butter Cream Cheese Frosting and Sugared Pecans is a complete success. The kitchen is filled with a wonderful pumpkin aroma while the cupcakes bake and are moist, tasty, and nicely spiced. The Browned Butter Cream Cheese Frosting, however, steals the show. The traditional cream cheese frosting is taken to a completely new level of deliciousness by its nutty, caramelized overtones. These cupcakes are a symphony of tastes and textures, topped with the crunchy sweetness of sugared nuts. The fact that they are gluten-free is simply amazing since it means that people with dietary limitations may enjoy this seasonal treat without having to give up flavor or texture.
