Pumpkin bar cupcakes.

I like cupcakes. I've been making them a lot lately. They are just cute and fun and then you don't have to cut the cake.
Actually I like to cut cakes. with squiggles. although that seems to bother some people.
Maybe that is why I do cupcakes.
So I don't bother their rhythm of perfect symmetry.

They were good.

Pumpkin bar cupcakes.
makes 30 cupcakes.

2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp rum ( optional )
1 3/4 cups squash or pumpkin ( also 15 oz)
2 cups flour ( half whole wheat works great)
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix sugar, egg, pumpkin, vanilla, rum and cinnamon. Beat up nicely then add the remaining ingredients. bake for 15-17 min at 350 Fahrenheit. you can also take the easy way out and make bars in a 10x15" pan for 25 min.
