A unique mix of pineapple and pumpkin creates a cupcake with mouthwatering flavor.
— Mary Relyea, Canastota, New York

Ingredients

2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
¾ cup maple syrup
½ cup 2% milk
1-½ cups all-purpose flour
1-¼ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground allspice
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
¼ cup butter, softened
1-½ cups confectioners’ sugar

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat shortening until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition (mixture will appear curdled). Beat in syrup and milk. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, ginger and allspice; add to shortening mixture and beat just until moistened. Stir in pumpkin and pineapple.
  2. Fill paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. For frosting, in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Add confectioners’ sugar; beat until smooth. Frost cupcakes.
