tips for making pumpkin cupcakes:

Our Pumpkin Cupcakes are super easy to make, start with a cake mix and we will help you with the rest.

Do i still need to add eggs, oil and water?

No! That’s a great part about this recipe. The pumpkin replaces the eggs, oil and water for an easy recipe. Pumpkin is a great healthy substitute for eggs and oil in any baking recipe, you won’t even notice the cupcakes are missing those items.

Pumpkin Cupcake batter smells like fall, especially when baking.

can i make this recipe as a cake instead?

Of course. This recipe works great as a cake. Instead of cupcake liners and a cupcake pan, just grease and flour a baking pan and bake for the recommended pan type on the back of the cake mix box.

Pumpkin Cupcakes fresh out of the oven smell like fall. Let them cool and add a little cream cheese frosting.
Frost your Pumpkin Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and sprinkle with a little pumpkin pie spice.

Do i have to use canned frosting for pumpkin cupcakes?

Nope! I know how yummy homemade frosting is. If you have a special recipe you love, go ahead and make it to use instead, then top it off with a little pumpkin pie spice.
