  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350° F. Line 12-count muffin pan with cupcake liners. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Make the cupcakes: In a large bowl using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and brown sugar together on medium speed until creamy.

  • Step 3

    Beat in the egg until combined, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Beat in the milk, molasses, and vanilla on medium speed. Mixture will not look fully combined, and that’s just fine.

  • Step 4

    In a medium bowl, toss the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pumpkin pie spice together until combined. With the mixer running on low speed, slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.

  • Step 5

    Fill cupcake liners 2⁄3 of the way full, no more. Bake for 19–21 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean. Allow to cool completely before frosting.

  • Step 6

    Make the frosting: In a medium bowl using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese and butter together on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Add the confectioners’ sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Beat for 2 minutes.

  • Step 8

    Add the vanilla and 1 more tablespoon more of lemon juice if necessary. Beat for 1 minute.

  • Step 9

    Frost cooled cupcakes immediately before serving.
