Single-Serving Pumpkin Cream Cupcake

Pin It!

Hey Cacao Nibs!
Yesterday I offered Thanksgiving main-dish idea: Vegan Lentil Mush.

So, for today, how about dessert?


You start out with a yummy Vegan Pumpkin Muffin for One.
Then you cut a hole in the center. For the filling, ya know. (Read on; we’ll get to that!)

Fill the hole, using the fun “Whipped Cream” Trick.
Then you can add other toppings if you so choose. (I added soyatoo and cacao nibs.)


And thus, a modest Vegan Pumpkin Muffin for One morphs into a beauty-queen cupcake.

Now, about this pumpkin cream… I’ve actually posted the recipe before, but to save you the trouble of clicking endless links, here it is again:

Pumpkin Cream Mousse

2/3 cup cooked pumpkin (about 140ish grams)

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/16th tsp salt

Up to 3T liquid (Try creamer for part/all the liquid. I used 20g Silk creamer, 30g water.)

Optional: sweetener of choice, to taste (You might also try adding some Tofutti cream cheese.)

Whip it all up in the blender for a loooong time.

  2. Jess says:

    I like the classics- I can never decide between apple and pumpkin pie:)

  3. Thats suuuper cute! I don’t especially like pumpkin though, so I might fill it w/ an apple filling and top it with carmel sauce…..and cinnamon.

  4. Darlin, I’m sorry but “fill your hole with whipped cream” is LOL funny 😉 I may misinterpret that and just pour the stuff right into my mouth hahaha! This does look so awesome though!!

  5. Delicious little cake! I love pumpkin pie, and pecan in small doses. It’s usually too dang sweet!

  6. this is so cute! and pretty- and healthy and tasty.,. can you ask for anything more/?

  7. I really need to redesign my blog…but I don’t have the right header photo yet. Mine’s looked the same for far too long. Maybe I’ll get around to that this weekend? Maybe? The pumpkin muffin looks delicious! Our desserts vary from year to year but my Granny always makes a few vegan pies. Not sure what’s in store for this year. I know I’ll be makin’ a Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie.

  8. I want to add some new things to my blog but we will see if I ever get there. I love this recipe. I make muffins for one so often-it’s t he perfect recipe!

  9. I’m excited to see the changes coming to the blog!

    Your cupcake looks amazing. Might make one a bit like that this week. 🙂 Never done any changes to my blog, aside from layout changes. Hope it goes well!

    That looks fantastic.

  12. Di @ says:

    This looks pumpkinlicious, Katie, and very Thanksgiving appropriate. Yum.

    My hubby has been suggesting changes to my site for awhile but I have to admit to being a tad intimidated to pursue them. I’ll eventually get there but i need to plan them out first. I’m all about plans and checklists to get through changes. 😉

  13. Ohmygosh! I love the new header! 🙂

  14. Camille says:

    The love the new page! It looks so professional but also fun 🙂

  15. Matt says:

    Katie! Just found your site the other day for sweet treats to survive my paleo lifestyle (fudge babies!). Unfortunately I checked back today and there are 404 errors all over the place on your fudge baby recipes 🙁 Hope you get things fixed, your recipes are a gift from beyond!
