Yummy cupcakes with cream cheese frosting! Yummy cupcakes with cream cheese frosting!
Number of Servings: 18


    1 White Cake Mix
    1 3/4 cup Pumpkin Puree (or a can of pumpkin)
    2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
    1 Egg
    18 tbsp (each cupcake = 1 tbsp) Duncan Hanes Cream Cheese Frosting


Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium size bowl pour in white cake mix, pumpkin, pumpkin spice and egg. Stir until just combined.

Line a muffin pan with medium sized paper liners. Fill each cup almost all the way up but so you can see a cm of the white liner at the top. (Refer to picture above.)

Bake for 20-25 minutes. They're ready when you can put a toothpick in and pull it out clean. Let cool completely.

Take one tablespoon of frosting and top the muffin/cupcake with it and spread with a knife evenly over the top. I like to take a roasted pumpkin seed and just stick on the top for some decoration and it shows what kind they are. Enjoy!

**I used the cake mix from Dollarama since I was adding spice and pumpkin I wasn't to concerned if the cake mix would be bland. Just covering up the taste anyways, so don't get the expensive cake mix and go for the no name stuff.**

Number of Servings: 18

    I found the cupcakes (or muffins without icing) to be very dense and I wanted them to be more airy so that's why I added the egg (no oil). You can use spice cake mix too if you don't have pumpkin spice, very true. I just like being able to control the taste with how much spice there is. Good tips!
