1 can of pumpkin puree
1 cup apple sauce (veg. oil substitute)
Other ingredients needed per the cake mix instructions
(Mine called for three eggs and 1 1/3 cup of water)
Cupcake liners of course!
I used the smaller can of pumpkin puree because my husband is a little less nuts about pumpkin then me… And let’s face it…. Somebody needed to help me eat all these… haha!
For more of a pumpkin flavor, you can use the larger can of course!
Then you’ll want to carefully spoon your mix into your cupcake liners!
AND if you’re like me and run out of cupcake liners because you realize the mix is going to go a little further than you thought… haha! you can also make a small cake.
Pop them in the oven and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Mine took about 17 minutes.
When they come out of the oven they are the most delicious Fall orange color!!!
Here you could add some orange food coloring, to make it more Halloween-ish…
Then I sprinkled a little ground cinnamon on top, to round out the SPICE of the cupcakes of course! Again, here you could do sprinkles.. candy corn, sky’s the limits peeps! Go crazy!
And are they delish!
If you’re like me and LOVE you some pumpkin… You are gonna love these!
The recipe makes about 24 cupcakes and one small cake!
Happy October Lovelies!!!
