MSC Pumpkin-Brown Butter Cupcakes and a Giveaway

It's been a long time since I've participated in my Martha Stewart Cupcake Club. I've been wanting to jump in again and what better way than to host a cupcake. If you are fellow Cupcake lover, welcome to our blog!


Okay, I think by now you've figured out how much we love pumpkin. When flipping through my MSC book these have caught my eye on a few occasions. If you've ever been to The Old Spaghetti Factory then you may have tried their Brown Butter Spaghetti with Mizithra Cheese. I love that stuff. It is no where near healthy but the nutty flavor of the browned butter and the Salty Cheese is a delicious combo. With this recipe your mixing browned butter with pumpkin. I knew it would be a hit.

Browned butter is pretty much burnt butter. It's easy to do but needs a watchful eye. It can get too dark pretty quickly and needs to be poured off when done into a bowl to stop the cooking. Even the smell makes me happy. The cupcakes turned out moist and not overly dense as some of Martha's cupcakes tend to do. I thought it had a nice crumb and a wonderful pumpkin spice flavor. These are topped off with a Brown-Butter icing. Mmmmm, this icing is rich and so yummy. I may have had a spoonful.



Anyway, if you need a new tasty Fall recipe, give these a try. They really were simple to toss together. The longest part being browning the butter. It is well worth it though! Happy Friday!


I searched Martha's website for the Pumpkin Brown Butter Cupcakes and couldn't find it. Darn it. I try hard to give credit where credit is due and not type out copy righted recipes. If you really want this recipe, email me and I'll see what I can do. Or you can buy this cookbook HERE.

Edited to Add: A fellow blogger found the recip HERE. The only difference is the cupcakes have an extra 1/2 cup sugar. Just add it with the brown sugar. Yay! So glad you have the recipe!

  8. I am so glad you picked this recipe! I absolutely loved the cupcake, and am sort of sad to see the last one sitting alone. .

    I remember The Spaghetti Factory when I was in grad school in Rochester (20 years ago!) do they still exist?
