    Pumpkin Passion Cupcakes are a staple in my house once the weather starts to cool down and the days get shorter. I love to make a batch of these and have them in the cupboard to satisfy any snacking requirements!

    These cupcakes keep for a few days in an airtight container so it’s always a good idea to make a double batch!
