Pumpkin Spice Cake with Honey Frosting
John Barricelli made this on Everyday Baking (set your DVR for this PBS show). He made it in a 9-inch square, but I decided to make them easy peasy for my co-workers to eat (and I'm totally in this crazy miniature phase right now). You can find the recipe here on the Everyday Food website or here on the Martha Stewart website.
These were simple to make and the cake is very, very moist. It uses a whole can of pumpkin puree so it's full of pumpkin. You can whip this together in a big bowl (no KitchenAid needed)! And with melted butter in the batter, you don't need to bring anything to room temp.
The frosting is simple - butter, cream cheese and honey!
I didn't have enough mini pans so I ended up making 35 minis and 8 regular cupcakes. I baked the minis for 12-13 minutes and the regular size for 23 minutes.
