All the comfort of a classic pumpkin pie, in one beautiful, handheld bite. These impossible pumpkin pie cupcakes have me dreaming of fall and all the flavors that come with it. Not too sweet and easy to share—these are my new favorite pumpkin treat.
If you’re dreaming of pumpkin treats too—don’t miss these pumpkin pie bars, pumpkin parfait, or make breakfast extra special with these pumpkin scones.
Pumpkin, It’s Not Just For Pie Anymore!
Impossible Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes Recipe
Pumpkin pie is a Thanksgiving staple—but pumpkin is such a wonderful ingredient we shouldn’t reserve it just for one day! These cupcakes are fun, festive, and taste like fall. No pie required.
Cupcakes feel more casual than a pie, and they are great for back-to-school get-togethers or church socials because they are already made into individual servings. Pumpkin pie on the go, if you will.
These cupcakes are impossibly tender, and a swirl of frosting complements all the warm spices. With these, you can have your cake, and your pumpkin pie too!

- Vanilla Extract
- Evaporated Milk

- Liners: I pour the batter directly into a muffin tin that’s been well coated with nonstick baking spray. I find that paper liners don’t work well with this recipe. If you want to use liners, use silicone liners. Paper liners make it difficult, if not impossible, to remove after the cupcakes have baked.

This is the 2nd time I’ve made this recipe for work…everyone loves them. I also took the advise of spraying the cups instead of paper liners….I also made a cream cheese topping instead of using cool whip….. .they are perfect little treats
Wow, Betty! I love the cream cheese topping you made 🙂
