Pumpkin Cupcakes

I know Halloween is over. But it is Thanksgiving in the US, so I thought a Pumpkin cupcake recipe was appropriate.
 This recipe is from on of my favorite books "Vegan Cupcakes take over the world" - pimped my me.

There are many ways to get the pumpkin flesh, please look at the Swedish chef. But I prefer to buy a can of pumpkin instead.

Pumpkin Cupcakes
Mix all these wet ingredients together :
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/3 cup cold pressed rapeseed oil
3/4 cup Xylitol or sugar
1/4 cup Soy milk
1 teaspoon good vanilla extract.
Now all the the dry ingredients :
1 1/4 white flour or light brown self rasing
1/2 tsp baking powder +1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda,
1 tsp Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp salt, little nutmeg and a little ground ginger.
Stire it all together with a fork. DON'T use electric mixer- it will get rubbery!
Into the cups, 180 degrees in the oven for 22 min.
