Pumpkin Apricot Cupcakes

I had this delicious pumpkin cupcake at Sweet Mandy B's bakery the other day...and I craved for more when I got home. So I was on the hunt for the perfect pumpkin cake recipe. Everything I found had veggie oil in it. But I wanted the real thing...butter! I finally found one but it had apricot puree in it. I actually had a can of apricot filling so I decided to be adventurous that day. Guess what? It was actually a perfect pairing for me. A moist yummy treat to kick off the Fall/Halloween season.

2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 cup buttermilk

I'm not sure if you have access to buttermilk. If you don't, here are some substitutes for buttermilk recommended by foodsubs.com
Substitutes: Combine one cup of milk (or soymilk) plus one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar, and allow to stand for ten minutes OR Combine one cup of milk plus two teaspoons cream of tartar, and allow to stand for ten minutes OR Combine two parts plain yogurt plus one part milk OR plain, low-fat yogurt OR sour cream OR molasses (in batters that also call for baking soda)
