Pumpkin Cupcakes with Spiced Mascarpone Cream Filling

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and cloves. In a large bowl combine eggs, pumpkin, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vegetable oil; whisk until smooth. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, one-third at a time, stirring just until combined after each addition. Stir in raisins and walnuts. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling each two-thirds full.
  3. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups. Cool completely on wire rack.
  4. When cupcakes are cool, split each one horizontally in half. Spread Spiced Mascarpone Cream Filling over bottom halves of cupcakes; place top halves of cupcakes on filling. Spread filling on tops of cupcakes; sprinkle with crystallized ginger.
