I saw this recipe in a bargain cookbook, and instantly wanted to try it out. Pretty much anything with pumpkin has got to be good...Right???
These were easily the best cupcakes I've ever had! My usual favorite cupcake is chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, and I also like these raspberry filled ones which I've shown here before, but these pumpkin spice cupcakes were fantastic! Serve them with a cup of coffee....YUM.
First mix all the ingredients together, and beat with a mixer for two minutes.
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 tells me). Let them cool, if you can wait.
They smell so good, that believe me, it's tough!
you can go with a store bought vanilla or cream cheese frosting, or your favorite homemade version, or...
my husband's all time personal favorite, cool whip or dunking them in a tall cold glass of milk. Your choice.
