I have been loving the forums and every one has been able to help me so much!I was hoping to find a recipe for a pumpkin cupcake since it is getting into the fall season but i have not had much luck so I was hoping someone had a great recipe that they would be willing to share. if you have a gluten free recipe or just regular I am looking for both!

Here's one everyone was just talking about recently. Bunnywoman posted it. Just read the entire thread. If I recall, she says that if making a cake to use a can of pumpkin and then maybe on second page says if making cupcakes to use only 1/2 can so they don't collapse in the middle.
