Vegan Pumpkin Cupcakes

When I was a small child, my grandmother used to make pumpkin fruitcakes and we all loved them. These Vegan Pumpkin Cupcakes remind me of my childhood.

I know my grandmother had eggs in her recipe, however, in these vegan apricot and pumpkin cupcakes the eggs are replaced with apricot nectar.

I love eating these when they are just out of the oven. I don't think these vegan cupcakes need frosting.
