What Does Evaporated Milk Do for Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes?

Adding evaporated milk to these pumpkin pie cupcakes does a few things.

One, evaporated milk works as a thickener in the cupcake batter. As the cupcakes bake, the heat from the oven sucks moisture from the pumpkin puree and can create a yucky, separated mess. UNLESS you add a thickener. It's the evaporated milk that keeps all the ingredients bound into one magical, pumpkin-y whole.

Second, adding evaporated milk (as opposed to sweetened condensed milk) keeps the pumpkin pie cupcakes a little lighter, fluffier, and not sickly sweet.

So there you have it—fall dessert perfection in the form of these yummy pumpkin pie cupcakes. We're more than willing to bet they become a yearly tradition at your house, too!
