Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

You will never find an easier recipe for cupcakes. Ever.

There are only two ingredients, three if you decide to frost them. Four if you count the sprinkles.

Here's what you need:

1 spice cake mix
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin

That's it!

Combine the cake mix and pumpkin. The easiest way to do this is to use a mixer. Divide the mixture among 18 paper-lined muffin cups. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Let cool then frost if desired. Dip in sprinkles if you want!

I used cream cheese frosting and it was delectable! I had some fall leaves/orange sprinkles that I poured into a shallow dish, then dipped the tops of the cupcakes into the dish . It's so much easier to dip than to shake the sprinkles onto the frosting. More sprinkles stick that way, too!

The muffins were so moist and delicious. You could use a yellow cake mix instead of spice cake, but note that you'd have to add pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon to the batter.

The frosting is optional, but not really. Have you ever eaten cupcakes without frosting? I think they're called muffins if you eat them that way!
