Pumpkin Cupcakes

Last night my son and I made Pumpkin cupcakes.  I found the little pumpkin candies at the Bulk Barn (sorry Lisa...), a few weeks ago, and decided that this was the perfect time to use them.  Now the cupcakes are not just pumpkin flavored, they look like they're from the pumpkin patch!
I have included the recipe that I use for Pumpkin Cupcakes below:

Pumpkin Cupcakes
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups pumpkin  puree
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 tbsp ground flax seed
Mix oil and sugar together.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla and pumpkin puree and mix until smooth.  Mix dry ingredients together and add to mixture by heaping tablespoons, making sure that all flour lumps are worked out.  Bake in 350 F oven for 25 minutes (Alberta time).   Enjoy.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...
