Pumpkin and Chocolate....Oh My!

It is the most glorious September day here in Kansas City. The humidity of summer has already passed, so I'm breaking out the flavors of fall. Yes, I'm making more cupcakes, and still not losing that last 10 pounds.  But, at least I'm still cuter 20 pounds lighter, and a girl needs a cupcake. I think cupcakes are on par with twirly dresses and scalloped awnings, and just absolutely necessary for true girlishness. Anyway, this is the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcake recipe from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World (I'm obsessed with it obviously. Seriously, buy it.) I didn't think I'd like pumpkin and chocolate, and almost omitted the chips. I trust this cookbook however, and wanted to try it as is. It was a nice combo. The icing tied the flavors together beautifully. I have to say the Cinnamon Icing is to die for. I think cinnamon rolls are most definitely in my future with this icing slathered all over them. Fun, fun! I love to cook with all my little cupcake loving heart :)

You should get it! It's totally not healthy at all, but I love that the ingredients are always in my pantry. So far all the recipes have been delicious. I love how you find a way to use healthy ingredients in all of your recipes. Even your sweets tend to be less guilt producing. I look forward to your cookbook :) There's got to be one in the works!

These were so yummy! I love having things in the cake plate to share if people come over. My niece came over and loved them too :) I need.to.stop.making.cupcakes! I do still want to make a pumpkin muffin sans the chocolate just for good measure.

Yum! I wish my baking creations looked that pretty! You should try these banana chocolate chunk cupcakes. They are incredible! They're not vegan, but I'm sure you can substitute out some ingredients.
