Orange batter is slightly terrifying though I still always want to lick the spoon. (But refrain.)

In a large bowl mix eggs, pumpkin, sugars, oil and vanilla together.  Slowly whisk the flour mixture into your pumpkin mixture.

Fill the cupcakes 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

I love seeing the products of my gluttony all spread out in front of me.

Whilst the cupcakes are cooling, make your frosting. Cream together the cream cheese, butter, maple syrup and vanilla. Frost your cupcakes once they are cool and enjoy!

 The maple frosting is the star of the show. I wanted to use the cakes as a vehicle for getting the frosting into my mouth.
