We've been preparing for Hurricane Sandy! It's pretty calm outside now, but the weatherman says to prepare for quite a storm. Schools have already been cancelled for Monday and Tuesday (no complaints here)! Hope everyone stays safe!

I've been enjoying Taylor Swift's new songs. I especially like this video (mainly because it takes place in Paris)! Enjoy!

Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes
adapted from
Oven 350

2 2/3 cups flour
3 tablespoons espresso powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs

Combine first 8 ingredients, up to and including salt. Set aside. Combine pumpkin, sugars, and oil in mixing bowl. Mix until incorporated.

With mixer on low, add in eggs, one at a time. Add flour mixture and mix until incorporated.

Fill cupcake tins (already lined with cupcake liners) with batter.

Bake in oven for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when tested.

Top with your favorite frosting and even a drizzle of caramel. Or leave plain, they taste just as good!

Makes 8 dozen mini cupcakes.
