pumpkin cupcake or cake recipe needed

I'm not looking for a muffin or quick bread....but something I can frost with a vanilla cream cheese frosting with a hint of cinnamon. Anyone got a recipe to share?

    This is a really fast and tasty recipe: Pumpkin Spice Cake with Honey Frosting from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food.

      Here's a link to Penzey's Pumpkin Cake, which my mom made last year and was delicious. Should translate to cupcakes. . .


      Along the same lines, Better Homes and Gardens has a Sweet Potato Cupcake recipe in its November issue--I'll look for a link. Use pumpkin in place of sweet potato, and you should be golden.

        Today's New York Times style section has a recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Layer Cake. Just the name started me drooling.

          These are from Tartlette. They're very good.

          Scroll to the Nov 29 entry

            From Joy of Cooking (the older ones, not the new one done by the grandson). Use the 'banana cake' recipe, and substitute pumpkin for the banana.
