For the frosting:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake tin with parchment paper liners.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, organic canola oil, vanilla, apple cider vinegar, and water. Stir well.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir well to combine.
  5. Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners, filling them about ⅔ full.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 16-18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Once the cupcakes are cool, make the frosting.
  8. Beat the buttery spread until fluffy. Sift the powdered sugar into the bowl and drizzle in a little non-dairy milk. Alternate adding more sugar and milk until the frosting is thick and creamy. Add the spices and mix again.

  9. Spread or pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes. Store leftover cupcakes in the refrigerator.
