Super Simple but Oh So Deliciously Decadent Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes!

      So as it is now officially fall, it is also officially pumpkin flavored everything season, and I for one, am not complaining! I absolutely love the flavor of pumpkin, and would probably honestly eat it year round. I had a pumpkin spiced latte today before my trip to the grocery store, and was thinking about cupcakes, as usual, and decided to try something new. I grabbed a box of Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix, and a can of Libby's Pumpkin puree. It seemed so easy I wasn't sure how well it would turn out.....Usually things that turn out amazing take more work to make them that way. But not these cupcakes!!! They are very moist, and softer than most cupcakes. Try out this recipe, and take these cupcakes to all of your holiday events! Pretend they are home made ;) 

The Recipe for Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting:

~ one box of Duncan Hines Spice Cake Mix
~ one can of Libby's Pumpkin puree
~ 3 eggs
~ 1/3 cup vegge oil
~ 1 and 1/3 cup water
~ 1/2 cup brown sugar
~ 1 TSP vanilla
~ cream cheese frosting
~ cinnamon for garnish

All you need to do is pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F, line a cup cake sheet with cup cake liners, (or spray baking spray generously if you don't have any liners).

Then mix the box cake mix together just the way it says on the back of the box, (with the water, eggs, and vegge oil mentioned above.)

Then add one 8oz can of Libby's pumpkin puree, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1 TSP vanilla. 

Bake them according to the directions for cupcakes on the back of the box. (350 degrees for about 18 minutes)

Let them cool, and then frost them with the cream cheese frosting, and sprinkle cinnamon for some beautiful holiday cheer :)

Delight your friends and family with the decadent moistness and richness of these cupcakes!
