I saw this recipe in a bargain cookbook called The Best 1001 Short, Easy Recipes and instantly wanted to try it out. Anything with pumpkin has got to be good, and these were easily the best cupcakes I have ever had. My usual favorite is chocolate with chocolate frosting, and I also like these raspberry filled ones which I’ve shown here before, but these pumpkin spice cupcakes were fantastic!
Mix all the ingredients together and beat with a mixer for two minutes.
Fill 24 cupcake papered muffin cups (I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup).
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until when you touch the top it springs back for you (at least that is what my cake baker mom told me).
Voila, these are so delicious you could stop here and eat them just like this, but if you want to take them up a notch…
you could go with a vanilla or cream cheese frosting, or a homemade version, or…
my husband’s all time personal favorite, cool whip.
If you are a fan of either cool whip or pumpkin, here are a few other recipes I’ve posted with one or the other of these lovely ingredients:
Hope you enjoy as much as I did!
