"Pumpkin" Cupcakes

This is another family favorite. Two of my children have November birthdays, and one of them usually requests Pumpkin Cupcakes as their special treat. Easy and VERY good!



  • 1 pkg. spice cake mix
  • 1 can pure pumpkin
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • cream cheese frosting
  • decorations, if desired


Blend cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, oil, and water until moistened. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.

Pour into muffin cups until 3/4 full.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 16-21 minutes. Cool, frost, and decorate. Makes 18 cupcakes.

Note: The decorations tend to dissolve if they are put on very far in advance. Add decorations right before serving.

Anything with pumpkin cooked or baked into it ends up "history" around here. It's one of our favorite desserts. Haven't tried it this way though.

Thanks for sharing with us.
