preparation

Make cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the margarine until creamy, about 1 minute. Add the sugars and molasses and beat an additional 3-4 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add the pumpkin and vanilla and beat 30 seconds more.
  3. Sift the pre-sifted flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and nutmeg into a medium-sized bowl. Add the flour mixture and the Silk to the pumpkin mixture in several alternating additions, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix gently with a rubber spatula after each addition; do not overmix.
  4. Scoop batter into paper-lined muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Cool completely before frosting.

Make old-fashioned frosting
