1 box Cake Mix, Spice Or Yellow (16.5 Ounce Box)
15 ounces, weight Can Of Pumpkin Puree, (NOT Pumpkin Pie Mix)
Powdered Sugar (for Sprinkling)
1 can Cream Cheese Frosting, 16 Ounce Size
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Place paper liners in a 12-count cupcake pan. 2. In a large bowl mix together the cake mix and the can of pumpkin and mix well. This can be mixed by hand or with an electric mixer. Fill the cupcake wrappers with batter, going about 3/4 of the way to the top. These cupcakes will rise slightly so do not over-fill. 3. Place the cupcake pan in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. When done, cupcakes should spring back when touched. Remove from the oven and set cupcakes on a rack to cool. 4. Once completely cooled, frost with cream cheese frosting or for a lighter treat, sprinkle the top of the cupcakes with powdered sugar. Notes: The spice cake mix blends really well with pumpkin but a yellow cake mix works well also. Recipe adapted from various versions on the internet.
